Let me tell you my story. I hope you will share yours.

Mike Burman

I grew up on a farm in Christian County, Kentucky. We raised cattle and crops.  We depended on each other.  We worked hard.

In my senior year, I traveled 45 miles a day to graduate high school from Clarksville Academy, Clarksville, Tennessee. My wonderful parents, my brother, and my sister pushed me to aim high.

Working summers to pay for the University of Louisville, I next went to Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University while employed as a law clerk at Ware, Bryson, West, Hiltz and Bartlett, a law firm in Covington, Kentucky.

As a young lawyer, I started my own practice in Hopkinsville.  As time went on, the motivation to “make a difference” for people injured or changed by the wrongful death of a loved one, was so strong I walked away from all other types of legal work in 2005, and focused exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death cases in Kentucky and Tennessee.

Most of my practice involves motor vehicle collisions involving automobiles, motorcycles, business vehicles and semi-trucks.  But I handle many other types of cases, including cases involving wrongful death from medical malpractice, dangerous machinery, or electrocutions to name a few.  For the types of cases I handle, click “Practice Areas.”

I am eligible to practice law before any State or Federal Court in Kentucky or Tennessee.  I successfully litigated against Walmart, a case that went to the Supreme Court of Kentucky. That case,  Lanier v. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., 99 S.W.3d 431 (Ky. 2003), changed the law regarding premises liability in Kentucky and has since been cited in over 40 cases, the 6th Circuit and in six states.

I have several published articles.  I am a member of the Kentucky, Tennessee and American Justice Associations.  I am a member of the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys.  I successfully tried to verdict a case involving the GEICO insurance company.  That case was the second most voluminous case in Division One of Christian Circuit Court, Christian County, Kentucky.  I have taught seminars for lawyers in legal technology and personal injury.

My office, Burman Law, is recognized as a leader in legal technology.  We constantly upgrade our technology to lessen the time it takes to complete a case.  We spend money on building your case.  We do not spend money on expensive TV commercials.  The Burman Law Client Portal exemplifies our commitment to delivering legal services directly to you.

My wife of more than 30 years, Lisa Burman, keeps me focused on things that really matter, and my four children amaze me with their passion for education and drive.

I enjoy co-counseling with lawyers in tough cases, and helping people searching to “make right” a tough situation.  I look forward to talking about your case, and learning your story.
