The Rules of Professional Conduct dictate that clients are best served by an attorney with the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness and preparation reasonably necessary for competent representation. Missouri Rule of Professional Conduct Rule 4-1.1. We would not prepare a trust, represent a client in a criminal matter or file a bankruptcy because we do not practice in those areas of law. So, we refer those cases to attorneys who concentrate in those practice areas.

Missouri ethics rules approve splitting fees between lawyers under Rule 1.5(e). This facilitates getting the client to the best lawyer for the type of case. Fee divisions are appropriate if: the division is in proportion to the work done or both lawyers/firms assume joint responsibility; the client agrees and this agreement is confirmed in writing; and the total fee is reasonable. We pay generous fees to referring counsel in civil and workers compensation cases. Our role with co-counsel varies from no involvement to working the whole case up and trying it with the referring lawyer. Most lawyers like to keep in communication with us and the client. Referring fees vary with different levels of participation. We typically finance the case and pay all expenses.

At any given time, a large percentage of our practice is made up of cases involving car wrecks, truck crashes, medical malpractice, wrongful death and workers’ compensation claims. If you have a client with a complex personal injury case and want experienced and competent assistance in handling the matter, we invite you to contact our law firm. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

    Lawyer Review for Burger Law
    I have known Gary as a friend and a fellow lawyer for nearly 25 years. He is an energetic, compassionate, advocate with a keen understanding of the law and the judicial system. He is well respected by the Courts and fellow members of the bar. While Gary is an experienced, intelligent litigator I believe his greatest attribute as a lawyer is the fact that he sees his clients as 'people' who need help and not just as another case.
    5 / 5 stars

    Lawyer Review for Burger Law
    Gary is a very talented trial lawyer. While his primary focus is personal injury litigation he has the knowledge to take on just about anything. I had the opportunity to work with him on a complex class-action lawsuit where he was able to obtain class certification when many other attorneys thought it wasn't possible. It's important to hire a lawyer that can try your case effectively if need be and Gary has a proven track record of securing large verdicts for his clients.
    5 / 5 stars

    Lawyer Review for Burger Law
    I have known Gary for years and worked both alongside and against him, and he has always been the consummate professional. He fights harder for his clients than any attorney I know in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. He has the respect of his opponents and the Judges, for both his work in the Courtroom and in the community. I would not hesitate to refer a family member or friend to Gary Burger.
