When Joe Bernstein started his law practice more than 40 years ago, he knew what clients needed: the best possible advice. An established businessman before entering the legal profession and a hand-picked member of President Lyndon Johnson’s task force on minority small businesses, Joe Bernstein and his son Bob made it their priority to balance a client’s business interests with their legal needs. When Kirk Burkley joined the firm in 2002, his views aligned with those of Bob and Joe and he quickly became a leader in the firm.  That tradition of tending to business AND legal opportunities is at the heart of Bernstein-Burkley.
