Chris Burks concentrates his practice in employment and family law litigation.
Businesses, employees, and unions regularly turn to him for breach of contract disputes, and he has particular expertise in labor and employment law matters involving misclassification, severance, minimum wage, overtime, and ‘off-the-clock’ violations.
Frequently, his cases are class and collective actions, and often involve constitutional issues such as government regulation of business and labor, association, speech, and related issues.
He also continues to represent individuals and families in a variety of matters including child and adult guardianships, adoptions, custody and visitation disputes, child support cases, divorces with business valuation issues, as well as breaches of fiduciary duties in family probate cases.
Mr. Burks gained experience through working as a lawyer for two Arkansas judges (Honorable Susan Hickey of the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas and the Honorable Rhonda Wood of the Arkansas State Circuit Court, Twentieth Judicial District).
In Mr. Burks time serving as a Pulaski County Election Commissioner, Arkansas law was declared unconstitutional through the case of Pulaski County Election Commission v. Arkansas State Board of Elections that he was instrumental in bringing.
