Legal services tailored to the specific needs of each community member.

Areas of Practice


General Practice

The communities of southern Ohio contain a variety of folks, all with a wide range of legal needs. The Burgess Firm does its best to serve the widest variety of clientele in order to truly provide a uniquely effective service. Generally, the areas mentioned on our home page are what we handle regularly. However, we are not opposed to evaluating cases on an individual basis if they are outside of those practice areas, so please do not let those categories deter you from giving us a call or sending us an email.

outside the Firm's area of practice

The law is complex and expansive. Because we are a general practice firm, we try to help every client that comes through the door, even if that means referring them to practitioners who can provide a service better tailored to a specific type of case. Specifically, we will normally refer clients with the following types of cases to other firms: Bankruptcy; Employment Law; Social Security and Disability; and Complex Tax Litigation. Again, we are not opposed to setting up a meeting to consult on a potential legal issue, but if it relates to one of these areas, we may only be able to refer you or your loved one to another practitioner in the southern Ohio legal community.
