KELTON M. BURGESS
ATTORNEY AT LAW
My name is Kelton M. Burgess. I am an Estate Planning and Probate attorney. My path to becoming a top-notch lawyer has been filled with many unique experiences, each of which shaped me into the legal professional I am today.
I earned my Juris Doctorate from Duquesne University School of Law in 2004, where I served as the Graduate Research Assistant to the Dean and was a National Finalist on the Moot Court Team. After law school, I became licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and California.
My law career began at a AM LAW 100 National insurance defense litigation firm in San Francisco, where I accrued nearly a decade of experience fighting for large companies. I then went on to work at a boutique law firm, where I served as counsel on several highly-publicized cases. In 2012, I opened my own firm, the Law Offices of Kelton M. Burgess, LLC, with the intention of serving the needs of those facing the estate planning, asset protection and probate processes.
I am dedicated to giving back to the community and participate on several boards. Currently, I serve on the Allegheny County Bar Association (ACBA) Probate and Trust Law Council, the ACBA Strategic Planning Committee and the Attorneys Against Hunger Committee.
I am a member of the Board of Governors for the Western Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, mentor young lawyers and law students. I routinely appears at seminars and lectures throughout the Greater Pittsburgh Area, providing education to people in my community from all walks of life.
In my spare time, I am a husband and father. My interests include spending time with my family, skiing, golf, cooking and all the things a suburban dad does.
While my credentials are impressive, what truly sets me apart is my human approach to the law. I treat my clients as individuals, not case numbers. When the emotional aspects of estate planning or probate become overwhelming, I am here to offer support, strength, and a listening ear. You focus on your well-being during this difficult time—and I will handle the legalities.
