If you’ve been injured GET HELP NOW.

After attending Texas A&M University , Gene Burkett earned his undergraduate degree at Southern Methodist University. Dallas car accident attorney Gene Burkett earned 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 25 years, Gene has devoted his practice to helping injured individuals, while attempting to make our community safer. Even though many cases settle, each case he accepts is prepared to be ready for trial. Gene believes this practice of thorough investigation and preparation leads to consistent successful results.  Gene is proud of the firm he and his partners have built over two and a half decades, and  the team of lawyers and legal staff they’ve assembled. “We’ve acquired what we believe to be some of the best talent in Texas.”  Having an M.D. / J.D. of counsel with our firm assists in understanding complicated injuries and medical issues.”
