As the “Lawyer of the Year in Litigation - Mergers & Acquisitions in West Palm Beach,” Burman is the only lawyer from West Palm Beach to be honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. He is also the sole winner from the Litigation – Mergers & Acquisitions category. A total of 225 lawyers nationwide were selected for the prestigious “Lawyer of the Year” award.
Burman, who has been recognized as one of the nation’s leading lawyers for more than four decades, was selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect Burman has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for his abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
“I am truly honored to have been recognized by my peers with the Best Lawyers’ Lawyer of the Year Award,” Burman said. “Having been in the industry for more than 40 years, there is nothing more gratifying than being chosen as the Best Lawyer in West Palm Beach as well as in my area of focus - litigation.”
Burman has been profiled in The Best Lawyers in America over the last twenty years, is AV-Preeminent rated by Martindale-Hubbell (the highest rating possible), and is included in their Bar Register of preeminent lawyers. He has earned Florida Bar Board Certification, the highest level of recognition by The Florida Bar. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame (B.A. 1968, J.D. 1971), Burman prosecuted capital crimes as a Criminal Division Chief for the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office before entering private practice.
He co-founded the Law Firm of Burman, Critton, Luttier & Coleman in 1980 and today specializes in complex commercial litigation, personal injury and insurance litigation. Burman was admitted to practice law through the State of Florida in 1971; he is also admitted to practice in the State of Colorado. More information on Burman can be found here.
Best Lawyers began designating “Lawyers of the Year” in the United States in high-profile legal practice areas. Since then, the organization has extended the “Lawyer of the Year” honor to many other countries where the Best Lawyers peer-review process is conducted as well. Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments we conduct with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
“We continue to believe — as we have believed for 30 years — that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession,”
