Attorney Profile

A. Elizabeth Burnett is a principal attorney at Robins Kaplan LLP. Based in the firm's office in Minneapolis, she focuses her practice on civil litigation, with an emphasis on individual and class action personal injury cases arising out of fires, explosions, and other disasters as well as defective products. Her experience also encompasses liability insurance coverage issues. Admitted to practice before all Minnesota state courts, Ms. Burnett is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, and the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan.

In her personal injury and wrongful death practice, Ms. Burnett has represented both plaintiffs and defendants, and she has been able to obtain successful results on their behalf. In one such case, she represented a worker who suffered severe burns over most of his body as a result of a job accident, and it was settled for $15.4 million. Ms. Burnett also defended a product manufacturer in a case arising out of a chemical explosion, and she was able to have the case against her client dismissed with prejudice. In her insurance coverage practice, she represents insurance companies in litigation and arbitrations.

As an undergraduate, Ms. Burnett attended Creighton University, where she majored in English literature and Spanish and gained fluency in the latter language. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude in 2004, she worked as a claims adjuster before deciding to pursue a legal education and enrolling at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. Ms. Burnett was an editor of the University of St. Thomas Journal of Law & Public Policy before being awarded her Juris Doctor cum laude in 2010.
