About Us

Burkemper  Law Firm


When we ask our clients why they decided to hire our firm, a common response is that they heard we are “the best.” While determining what attorneys are “the best” might be a subjective and difficult inquiry, we do aspire to practice law with the highest degree of skill and professionalism. Our clients are routinely pleased on concluding their business with us and they routinely return on new matters.


The Burkemper family started The Burkemper Law Firm in Troy, Missouri before Troy’s recent population growth. The law firm is guided by a desire to protect the values and basic decency, which serve as a foundation for Troy’s success. We understand that
normal people will often experience challenges that involve the legal system. If you are in an uncomfortable situation or you feel embarrassed, we will not judge you. We understand that there is always more to a person than their worst decision.
