Mike Burg Trial by FireDenver, Colorado – Already an Amazon bestseller, Mike Burg’s new book, Trial By Fire: One Man’s Battle to End Corporate Greed and Save Lives, continues its climb. The book recently reached the number 2 spot on the Denver Post newspaper’s list of the Denver area’s best selling nonfiction books.

Mike Burg has built one of the most successful trial law firms in the country and is considered one of the top trial lawyers in America. In April 2016, he was inducted into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame, housed at Temple University. Trial By Fire follows Mike’s illustrious and inspiring life and career and demonstrates Mike’s unwavering commitment to provide the absolute best representation possible for his clients.

Praised as a “must read” by CNN Legal Correspondent Mark Geragos, Trial By Fire continues to grab and inspire readers:

“TRIAL BY FIRE goes behind the scenes of the law and delivers a portrait of the life of a man born to be a trial lawyer,” one Amazon reviewer wrote. “His stories will grab you, make you laugh and they will show you how the justice system can actually work for us if we have the right lawyers. A major book. An absolute must read!”

Another Amazon reviewer said: “This book shows what makes him a great lawyer – he never gives up.”

A law student was inspired by Mike’s stories and wrote this in an Amazon review: “I’ve decided to change my focus to mass torts and ACTUALLY MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE by representing the little guy like my new hero, Mike Burg. It’s a great read, sure, but more than that, in these cynical times, this amazing book has renewed my faith in the human race.”

And yet another Amazon reviewer recently wrote: “Mike has great tenacity and drive, but the book also reveals a much deeper social conscious which motivates him. While the book could have been only about him, his success and his ego, throughout the book he gives kudos and credit to luck, his past clients, and to his many partners and collaborators. I highly recommend this book.”

Mike’s book is available for purchase at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, The Tattered Cover, or your local bookstore.
