As the firm referred to as the best wrongful death lawyers in Celina TX, we’ve earned more than $100 million for our clients in verdicts and settlements, including securing 7th largest motor vehicle accident verdict in Texas on a mild classified traumatic brain injury case, and we earned the largest published multi-million dollar wrongful death settlement in Oklahoma several years ago.

We leverage our tremendous experience with 250 combined years of experience, approximately 200 personal injury trials and more than a 99.9 winning percentage in cases we handle.  Or legal experience and processes allows us to provide skilled, knowledgeable, representation and extensive resources to work on every case to seek full compensation for our clients’ losses. We are Celina’s best wrongful death attorneys for cases involving motor vehicle crashes (including those involving commercial trucks), product liability claims, premises liability suits and more.

Experience, resources and ethics matter.  There are so many law firms that are in over their head in catastrophic cases.  Most lack the resources to fund a major wrongful death case.  These cases can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fully pursue.  Most every personal injury law firms carry large lines of credit from which they draw to fund these expensive wrongful death cases.  Once the case is completed, they have to pay back the huge bank interest charges and they take all of these interest charges out of their clients’ settlements.  The best wrongful death law firm in Celina doesn’t even have a line of credit because we do not need it.  We have the full capability to internally fund every single case we take on, and zero interest charges are passed to our clients.

To be the best wrongful death attorneys in Celina TX, we believe it is best to take fewer cases than firms. Burress Law’s founding attorney, Jason K. Burress, is personally involved in every case. We prefer to work closely with our clients and give them the personalized service they deserve.

Our attorneys communicate regularly with our clients.
