(Richmond – September 2012) John K. Burke, Jr. has been selected as a 2013 “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers in America. Mr. Burke was named the Best Lawyers’ 2013 Richmond Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law “Lawyer of the Year” (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC). Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant.
Lawyers being honored as “Lawyer of the Year” are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the exhaustive peer-review assessments conducted by Best Lawyers with thousands of leading lawyers each year. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.
Mr. Burke has been repeatedly recognized in Best Lawyers in America for Commercial Litigation (1999 – 2013) and Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law, and was also recently recognized as well in the category of Real Estate Litigation (2013). He has also been selected as one of America’s Leading Lawyers for Litigation by Chambers USA (2004-2012), and as a Virginia Super Lawyer in Business Litigation. Mr. Burke has also been named numerous times in Virginia Business magazine’s Legal Elite in Civil Litigation. He has extensive trial experience in Virginia state courts, as well as in the federal courts of Virginia and other states.
