Headshot of Attorney Elizabeth A. Burick

I am a lifelong resident of Stark County and a graduate of The University of Akron with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and a minor in Criminal Justice. I graduated from the University of Akron's School of Law with a Juris Doctor degree and was admitted to the State of Ohio Bar in 1984. Ten years later, I opened my own private law office.

My Personal Injury Practice

With over 30 years of practicing personal injury law, I have developed specialties within this area of law which contributes to my expertise in cases involving:

With a deep-rooted desire to help others move forward, I thoroughly prepare for every case in pursuit of my clients’ best interests.

My Probate & Estate Planning Practice

Probate law involves cases regarding estates and wills, guardianship, and trust matters. In addition to my practice, I am a trial litigator appearing in Stark County Probate Court lending to my skills as an experienced litigator.

Helping families and individuals plan for their future by creating a solid estate plan is my extended desire to help others move forward. The same can be said about my work as a probate attorney. Losing a family member or loved one can be more devastating than a personal injury, and I want to make the probate process easier for my clients so they can focus on getting through this hard and painful time in their lives.

My job is to get what you want done and to help you and your family move forward.


Community Involvement & Past Associations

I served as the president of the Stark County Bar Association, president of the Stark County Academy of Trial Lawyers, and a trustee of the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers. I am also currently a member of the Ohio Bar Association.

Other organizations I participate in include: Statewide Coordinator and local Chairperson for The People’s Law School, as a member of the Canton Chamber of Commerce, City Club and Canton Women’s Club. I was appointed to serve on the 911 Committee and Domestic Violence Council by the Canton Municipal Court. I have been a Precinct Committee person for the past 30 years and was previously elected to serve as a Lake Township Trustee.

Exceptional customer service is something I strive for with each client. I personally handle every case, and you will never be passed to a paralegal when you hire me as your legal counsel. I will see your case to the end and offer you the best possible legal advice and representation.

I have the ability to handle any type of estate planning or personal injury law problem successfully and with favorable outcomes. If you have recently lost a loved one and are now facing probate, I can help you and your family through the entire process.

In any situation, an experienced attorney should be hired to handle your estate planning or personal injury case. I am here to make your life easier. Please contact my firm if you are searching for a lawyer with years of experience and a fierce courtroom reputation.
