Editorial Reviews

Review

“Michael doesn’t just talk the talk and walk the walk. He is an arsonist in the law. His corporate smack downs are the stuff of legend. This is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in the subject.”
—Mark Geragos, CNN Legal Correspondent and criminal defense lawyer, inducted into the Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame in 2016

“Look behind most stories where true justice has prevailed and you will typically find a tenacious, uncompromising individual who struggled and sacrificed mightily to bring about the birth of justice. Michael Burg is one of those individuals. For thirty years he has shown up in courtrooms from New York to Los Angeles with one goal in mind—Justice. This book gives you a look behind those stories.”
—Mike Papantonio, trial attorney instrumental in the tobacco and asbestos litigation, inducted into the Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame in 2015

“He’s always prepared. He knows his material; he’s very bright; he’s very dogged and yet cooperative with opposing counsel. He is also extremely cooperative with the court and well respected by fellow attorneys on the plaintiff’s side. His leadership was extremely important in resolving about 2,000 to 2,500 cases. He played a role in coordinating state courts and the ultimate resolution of the cases by settlement.”
—The Honorable David Katz, U. S. District Court judge for the Northern District of Ohio

“Michael Burg is an attorney who exemplifies the mission of the American Association for Justice—promoting a fair and effective justice system, and supporting the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests. This book demonstrates the lengths to which he is willing to go in order to achieve that result! He is a true defender of the American justice system.”
—Lisa Blue Baron, past president, American Association for Justice, inducted into the Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame in 2015

Trial by Fire is more than a book—it is a work of art, methodology, and inspiration! It is the ultimate must-read for all who seek to be leaders, managers, mothers and fathers, advocates and coaches, and the keepers of the promise to make this a better world.”
—John F. Romano, trial attorney, inducted into the Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame in 2016
