Our Success

Burke Wise Morrissey Kaveny is committed to helping our clients to secure just compensation when they or a member of their family have been wrongfully or negligently harmed by medical care, a product or an accident. We take pride in handling each case to meet the unique needs of our clients and the unique circumstances of their injury and loss.  In some cases we have secured multi-million dollar verdicts, awards or settlements.  Many other of our cases involve smaller amounts of compensation, but we give to them every bit of the same care, attention and creativity. In cases large and small, our lawyers in their collective careers have through verdicts and settlements secured more than $750 million in just compensation for our clients.
