Attorney Profile

Michael Burgis is the founder and managing partner of Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., located in Sherman Oaks, California. Providing aggressive and superior representation to his clients in Southern California and throughout the state, he focuses his practice on workers' compensation and employment law cases. Dedicated to protecting the rights of the injured, he also handles personal injury matters on behalf of those who have been harmed by the negligent acts of others.

Prior to attending law school, Mr. Burgis received his Bachelor of Science in economics from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2003. He then went on to pursue his legal education at Southwestern Law School, from where he was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2008.

Following law school, Mr. Burgis went on to work for a well-known workers' compensation law firm in Pasadena, California. During his tenure there, he quickly rose through the ranks by establishing himself as a go-to litigator for the firm and his clients, setting records for settlements and verdicts earned. In 2010, Pasadena Magazine named Mr. Burgis as a top attorney due to his successes. Since forming Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., he has secured numerous seven-figure settlements and verdicts as well as disability awards for his clients.

Mr. Burgis has been licensed to practice law before all of the state courts of California since 2008. During his career, he has had the opportunity to litigate hundreds of cases before the state's Workers' Compensation Appeals Board. In one of his representative cases, he successfully argued on behalf of an injured client in front of the 2nd District Court of Appeal, which upheld a previous ruling of the WCAB awarding permanent disability benefits.
