About Constantinou & Burkert

Hi, I’m Matthew Burkert. Welcome to my website! A little about me: I was raised in Durham, North Carolina, where I went to Parkwood Elementary School. I then attended Lowes Grove Middle School. Then I went to Jordan High School here in Durham. 

After I graduated high school, I went to college at East Carolina University in Greenvile, NC, where I studied criminal justice. I also received my minor in Psychology. You should try B’s BBQ if you visit Greenville! They have great BBQ. I then attended North Carolina Central University School of Law, where I received my Juris Doctor in 2012. I then took the North Carolina Bar Exam in 2013 and received my license to practice law on March 29, 2013.

I joined the Constantinou Law Group, PA, starting as a law clerk when I was in law school in 2010. After I graduated, I became an associate attorney in 2013. After working as an associate attorney for 10 years, I was able to purchase the company and the name was changed to Constantinou & Burkert, PLLC in April 2023, where I now serve as the managing partner. This step not only marks my professional growth but also underscores my commitment to serving the community I call home.

While not practicing law, I usually spend time with my wife, Daisy, and two kids, Meelo and Della. I enjoy the outdoors, eating, or watching sports, including the Durham Bulls, ECU Pirates, and Duke Blue Devils. I also remain an active member of my community by supporting local groups with my time and donations.

Thanks to them they handled everything so that I was paid a fair amount in as quick a time as possible. I did not have to pay anything out of pocket and I was treated with respect and could always get in touch with them if I had any questions!! 10 out of 10..would recommend any court issues or legal guidance!"

He's very simply the BEST at representing his client and their needs and wishes in what is never a simple or easy time. personally and emotionally! Thanks John..and I can't say enough to tell you how very VERY much your efforts took over when I was personally unable to navigate that. Thanks."
