The attorneys at Burg Simpson are no strangers to awards, accolades, and professional service. Shareholder Stephen J. Burg is just the latest example.

Stephen is the 2018 president of the Top 40 Under 40, the National Trial Lawyers’ collection of the country’s top young trial attorneys. Membership is exclusive, invite-only, and extended to only those legal professionals “who meet stringent qualifications and specialize in the legal practice of criminal defense or civil plaintiff.”

“Right now, our country is facing huge challenges,” Stephen says. “There is an increase in discrimination and hate, and a decrease in justice for the citizens of our country. We, as lawyers, are in a unique position to fight for what is right, to be the voice for the voiceless, and to stand up for the people who do not have a team of lobbyists and power behind them. It’s time we balance the scales of justice.”

The National Trial Lawyers is a professional organization composed of premier trial lawyers from across the country who exemplify superior qualifications as civil plaintiff or criminal defense trial lawyers.
