About the Firm

Jim Burke John Eisner David Austin

We (Jim and John) started Burke & Eisner in 1994.  Jim from a legal background and John from a more business oriented background.    Dave joined them in 1995 soon after Graduating from the Seattle University Law School.


Since then we’ve worked hard to help people with really complex problems.  We almost exclusively help people with product liability cases right now.  Our work has us involved with cases from all over the country against some of the biggest corporations.

Our Mission is to help make sure that everyone can have access to the legal system and have the opportunity to tell your story.  We believe that if you were injured because of someone (or some coporation) that you should be able to have your case heard.

We Love What We Do.  We invite you to give us a call.  Let us see if we can help you.

We’re also real people. Here’s some trivia about each of us.

  • Jim is an avid fiddler and has been playing and performing for decades.  (Dave says he’s really good!)
  • John is the endurance king of the office and has competed in many triathlons including completing an Ironman distance triathlon.
  • Dave volunteers with his local Search and Rescue Group.
