Law Week Colorado Interviews Michael Burg Regarding Lifetime Achievement Award

Burg, Michael 

Michael S. Burg will be honored with a lifetime achievement award to be presented by the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association at CTLA’s annual dinner this spring. While the award recognizes nearly five decades of accomplishments, Michael Burg says there is still more he wants to achieve.

Mr. Burg, a founding shareholder of Burg Simpson Eldredge Hersh & Jardine, has no shortage of accolades. In addition to receiving the CTLA’s Kenneth Norman Kripke Lifetime Achievement Award, which was announced last month, he was named one of Law Week’s Lawyers of the Decade for 2000-2010 and one of the Top 50 Trial Attorneys in America by the Legal 500. He has also received the Clarence Darrow Award and the American Association for Justice’s Heavy Lifting Award.

In 2016, Burg was inducted into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame at Temple Law School in Philadelphia, where his portrait hangs alongside 70 other renowned trial lawyers, including John Adams, Thurgood Marshall and Johnnie Cochran. He has also been consistently recognized by his peers as a Best Lawyer in America and a Colorado Super Lawyer.
