Burbidge | Mitchell is a leading firm in wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury cases. The firm obtains impressive results by selectively accepting cases, then vigorously pursuing them. Before our firm represents a client, each case is carefully vetted, including consultations with experts when necessary. It is only after the firm determines that the case is meritorious that Burbidge | Mitchell will accept it. Once the firm undertakes representation, the team prepares the case for trial.
