“I was drawn to the law because it offered an opportunity to help people in their time of need. I’ve always been competitive by nature. Practicing law allows me to compete on a daily basis against large insurance companies and opposing counsel. The longevity of our partnership—more than 20 years now—has led to a trial team that knows how to win.”
After attending Texas A&M University for Construction Science, he earned his undergraduate degree at Southern Methodist University. Dallas car accident attorney Gene Burkett worked in manufacturing sales before receiving his law degree at St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio. The Dallas native then partnered with brothers Mark and Scott Frenkel at Frenkel & Frenkel. For more than 20 years, Gene has devoted his practice to helping injured individuals and making the community safer. Even though the vast majority of cases settle out of court, Gene prepares each case he accepts as though for trial. Gene believes this practice of thorough investigation leads to consistent, successful results.
A father of a daughter and son, Gene is a faithful supporter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, where he has served on the advisory board, as well as Ronald McDonald House, The Russ Martin Foundation, Jesuit Preparatory School of Dallas and Parish Episcopal School.
