Injury lawyer Christopher D. Burk represents victims of auto accidents, slip and falls, and nursing home neglect incidents in Nevada, Arizona, California, and Hawaii.
In a nutshell, I am an attorney whose passion is protecting the “little guy” in society. Our office is not afraid of taking on the multi-billion dollar insurance companies or the powerful and influential casinos, which often try to avoid liability by “sticking it” to the little guy. We have had proven success against these large corporations.
No matter the injury, you will be a priority in our practice.
There are many Patriots in my family.
My biological paternal grandfather, Vernon Dale Huddleston, gave his life for our country in World War II.
My adoptive paternal grandfather, Daniel Madison Burk, served honorably in the United States Navy in World War II and the Korean War. One of his ships was sunk, and somehow he managed to survive the wreckage.
My maternal grandfather, James Raymond Perrin, served in the United States Army and Europe during World War II.
I was born in England when my father served abroad as a Civilian in the United States Air Force. After a few years overseas. My father then accepted a Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. I was raised in a nearby suburb of Beavercreek. I participated in club soccer, track, basketball, and wrestling. My first job was working at a local McDonalds when I was 15 years old. I worked in various positions, including grocery stores, delivering pizzas, and construction.
After graduating from Beavercreek High School, I went on to earn two degrees from “THE” Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. After graduation, my passion for Law took me to San Diego, California, to attend law school. While attending Thomas Jefferson School of Law, I was elected Student-Body President.
Despite going to a relatively small law school, I was also elected as the National Vice-Chair for the American Bar Association – Law Student Division. This was a tremendous honor as this position was selected by the student body presidents of each law school all across the country. Finally, in my last year in law school, I was also appointed by the Dean to the prestigious Faculty-Selection Committees and the Diversity Committees.
Preparing for my career as a litigator, I was selected for the law school’s Mock Trial (1st team). I competed in several regional and national mock trial competitions. I also gained valuable courtroom experience by interning for the San Diego Alternate Public Defender’s Office for my last two years in law school. I donate my time and efforts to local veterans and the Paralyzed Veterans of Nevada here in Las Vegas.
Since 2004, I have tried numerous cases involving car crashes, slip and falls, construction defect housing, criminal matters, civil litigation, and medical professional licensing.
I am currently a member of the State Bar of Nevada, State Bar of Arizona, State Bar of California, the Nevada Justice Association (formerly the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association), and the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association. I am admitted to practice law in Nevada, Arizona, and California. I passed all three state bar exams on the first try. I am also admitted to practice in Federal Courts in Nevada, Arizona, and California.
