In My Own Words
My name is Konstantin Burshteyn. For lack of a more creative nickname, many of my friends, colleagues, and clients call me Kon. You have read about my background and my educational history, all of which have shaped me into the passionate, and compassionate attorney I am today. I have developed an innate ability to share my clients concerns and to use my legal knowledge to provide them with the most effective representation.
I made a conscious decision to leave my growing solo practice and to join the prestigious firm of Pulvers, Pulvers & Thompson because I believe that the diligent advocacy that the firm offers mirrors that which is imbedded in my own passion for effective representation. I am committed to our mission, and our goal in achieving the greatest results for our clients
"I want you to open the case, and when you are doing it, talk to the jury as though your client's fate depends on every word you utter. Forget that you have any one to fall back upon, and you will do justice to yourself and your client." - Abraham Lincoln
