Approach to Cases

Minimizing Discovery, Lowering Case Costs and Getting to Results Faster for the Client

The Burk Law Firm does not take cases with a value below $100,000.00.

The Burk Law Firm, P.C. as a business and commercial trial firm takes a minimalist approach to discovery and cost management in lawsuits. Our approach is to do only the discovery that is critical to preparing the case for trial, which is also the best way to place the case in the best posture for pretrial settlement. As trial lawyers whose success rate at trial and in settlements is historically extraordinary, we have learned the means to concisely and efficiently extract the best evidence possible for the most economical amount under the facts and circumstances.

The minimalist approach the Burk Law Firm pursues means that we don't need to and we do not depose every possible witness in the case. Instead, we focus our efforts on deposing only those witnesses whose testimony is necessary to win for the client at trial. Of the multiple paper discovery vehicles the rules allow, we have found that in many cases only certain of them consistently yield useful results (a particular case may vary the general rule just stated) and those few consistently useful paper discovery vehicles are the means typically used to obtain the most efficient paper discovery possible. Using this approach is in most cases superior. The minimalist approach usually causes the case to progress faster to trial and gets to pretrial settlement faster if the case can settle.

We recommend and strongly encourage mediation very early in cases to enhance the possibility of early settlement. In addition to possibly settling the case early for the client, early mediation tends to flush out early on in the case the ultimate trial positions of the opposing client and counsel and therefore enhances the strategic advantage for our client. Moreover, seeking early mediation as our Firm regularly does allows our clients to assess early the main strengths and weaknesses of their own case, thereby allowing them to make better and earlier decisions about effective trial and settlement strategies.
