Murchison & Cumming, LLP is pleased to announce the addition of Paul W. Burke to the firm’s Los Angeles office as an Associate focusing the last 15 years of his practice on representing the interests of various clients in the hospitality industry. Most commonly, Mr. Burke’s clients are faced with legal issues, related to personal injury/wrongful death and property damage based upon theories of negligence, premises liability, discrimination and intentional tort. In his nearly 28 years of practice, Mr. Burke has achieved considerable law and motion and appellate experience having handled numerous writs and appeals.
A skillful communicator, Mr. Burke provides effective interaction that advances the interests of his clients. He has handled various matters successfully, defending his clients in complex litigation claims. He recently represented the operator of a national hotel chain in an action filed by a woman who fell from a third story window to the ground. Mr. Burke achieved an extremely favorable result and early resolution due to his targeted discovery of the case. Most recently, Mr. Burke achieved a positive result in an action alleging that the plaintiff had sustained a personal injury on his client’s property. Mr. Burke was successful in not only convincing the contractor to assume his client’s defense, but was able to recover post-tender fees and costs as well.
