Scott Burkhalter is top notch. Scott navigated a very intense and difficult child guardianship case in regards to our niece and nephew. Family is a delicate subject and Scott exemplified professionalism, compassion, empathy, extreme knowledge and strength. We always felt like a team and he was the captain we could whole heartedly trust. His calm demeanor and firm, strategic approach was very successful. We consulted him off and on throughout the years when new issues arose and he always made us feel like his most important client and handled everything swiftly and diligently. I can honestly say Mr. Burkhalter played a huge role in saving the kids lives and we are forever grateful.  - Laurie

While I never wished to find myself in need of a divorce attorney, I am thankful that I hired Scott Burkhalter to represent me. He is knowledgeable, insightful, trustworthy and professional. He guided me through all the challenges and frustrations you typically face during a dissolution with the utmost care and professionalism. I highly recommend Burkhalter Law for any family law matter. - Marissa

Mr. Burkhalter helped me with a complicated divorce. He was available well beyond the norm and was always super responsive with my case. He negotiated a divorce that fully protected my daughter, which was my main concern. He thought of things that I never would have that continue to give me peace of mind. Highly recommend! - Andrea

My husband and I had the good fortune to find Mr. Burkhalter after a very negative experience with another attorney which left us hanging as we prepared to go into a parenting plan mediation. He stepped in and helped us navigate a very difficult situation with a positive outcome.  He has since helped us with several other legal matters including a child support adjustment, a prenuptial agreement, another mediation and an arbitration. All these matters were handled professionally and Mr. Burkhalter always listened to our concerns. He is very experienced in his field. He knows most of the family law judges, mediators/arbitrators and other attorneys so he can give you better guidance in a field of law that is not always black and white.  Mr. Burkhalter has been invaluable to us and we would highly recommend him. - Cathy

Scott Burkhalter is an absolute professional. His knowledge of family law, the legal system and his ability to communicate with others makes him especially valuable. He was able to help me navigate an angry and messy divorce with kids. I would highly recommend Scott to all of my friends and family. - Tyler

​​Scott was awesome! I came to him with a lot that needed to be done and he took it on without hesitation. I was impressed with his professionalism during the process. There were times that he spoke with confidence that made me feel like I made the right decision. I was very comfortable with all that was done and ended on a very positive note! This is not an easy thing to go through but he definitely made it manageable. 100% recommend!  - Lance,

​Before I discovered Burkhalter Law, I had been with another attorney for six months who accomplished little for me while becoming intimidated by my ex’s lawyer.  Scott Burkhalter was recommended to me by a good friend who had had a successful experience with him. Scott cleared time to talk with me on the phone almost immediately, and each appointment or phone call subsequent was prompt to keep my case moving. Scott quickly gained my confidence that my difficult divorce would be settled equitably. His successful litigation experience was a powerful benefit to have if needed. He is a skilled mediator who negotiated successfully and fairly for my best interests, as well as for both parties. Scott was always prepared, organized, with excellent recall so it was effective time spent. I found his fee structure to be reasonable. Scott is an experienced, knowledgeable and confident attorney with a solid track record of success. He was strategic and positioned for every strange twist and turn in my divorce. Scott is personable and handled my case with integrity and composure. I highly recommend Burkhalter Law to anyone needing expert legal representation. - Stephanie
