by Donald Ray Burger
Attorney at Law

I concentrate my practice on matters related to trial work. I do plaintiff's personal injury, probate litigation and general civil litigation, and business litigation. I am not certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in any area. I have tried lawsuits in state and federal court as well and handled administrative hearings.

Sole Practitioner
April 1989 to present

Since going out on my own in 1989, I have handled state and federal cases. My cases include personal injury cases, business cases, probate matters and insurance disputes. I maintain membership in the College of the State Bar, the Texas Bar Foundation and several legal organizations including the American Bar Association, the State Bar of Texas and the Houston Bar Association, among others.

Haynes & Fullenweider, A Professional Legal Corporation
Houston, Texas
Associate from 1984 to 1986
Officer, director and shareholder from 1986 to 1989

Haynes & Fullenweider, P.L.C., was a professional legal corporation concentrating on civil law, family law and criminal law. I came there as an associate in 1984 and handled a variety of cases. My main area of concentration was in the civil section. I handled personal injury cases, business law cases and administrative hearings. I was one of the lawyers representing the members of the Houston Police Patrolmen's Union and the Houston Airport Police. I was made an officer, director and shareholder in 1986. The firm had to dissolve in April of 1989 when Donn Charles Fullenweider left to start his own firm. The split was amicable and many of the former shareholders still work cases together.
