Carla Burke

Carla Burke, an attorney and shareholder with Baron & Budd, began her legal career with the firm’s appellate section. She has a gift for writing and oral advocacy, has authored and presented numerous papers and presentations on the topics of litigation and premises liability law.
 
Carla is a natural teacher, which is perfect for her role as a legal issues attorney in complex cases. She has also been an adjunct clinical instructor of law at the Southern Methodist University School of Law Legal Clinic and, before law school, an English professor at a local college.
 
Carla’s work for her clients is driven by her conviction that “law is a powerful force for social change. What starts with one person can affect an entire nation.” Carla found the opportunity to be a part of that force for change at Baron & Budd.
