Ms. Devin Kircher, one of the ten 2021 Burg Simpson scholarship winners, recently reached out to thank Burg Simpson founder Michael Burg and the firm. She said:

“I sincerely thank you for selecting me to be a recipient of the Burg Simpson Scholarship award. As an aspiring lawyer, I am honored to have been recognized by an institution of this caliber. Your generosity will help me on the road toward a successful future. Thank you again.”

Ms. Kircher graduated from Holy Family High School and will be attending Colorado State University in the fall of this year. She will have a double major in Economics and Sociology with an emphasis on Criminal Justice. She will also be considering which area of the law she intends to focus her practice, but has lots of time to decide. We hope that she keeps in mind that Burg Simpson’s practice areas include personal injury, medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, commercial litigation, and mass tort law!

All of us at Burg Simpson wish Ms. Devin Kircher the best of luck and much success as she pursues her education and her dreams.
