My name is Mike Burman. Let me tell you my story. I hope you will share yours.
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, believed in a good education and pushed me to aim high.
Working summers to pay for the University of Louisville, I went on to earn a Juris Doctor Degree from Salmon P. 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 and then practiced with other lawyers, but I was always motivated to “make a difference” for injured people or people changed by the wrongful death of a loved one. And so, in 2005, I walked away from all other types of legal work, and focused exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death cases.
