     Mr. Burggraf was born in Mishawaka, Indiana.  He and his wife, Jeanne, have been married for 38 years and have 3  children.  After earning a degree in Arts and Letters from the University of Notre Dame, Mr. Burggraf worked as the general manager of his family's business.

     Mr. Burggraf received his Juris Doctor degree, Magna cum laude, from Valparaiso University School of Law in 1995.  During law school, he served legal internships in both the United States Attorney's Office and for a federal district judge.   He was admitted to the Indiana bar in October, 1995.

     Mr. Burggraf currently concentrates his practice in the area of all aspects of family-law related matters, including juvenile matters.  Additionally, throughout his career, Mr. Burggraf has successfully handled cases in a wide variety of practice areas, including estate planning, criminal defense,  civil litigation, and  real estate and zoning issues.  Mr. Burggraf has also prevailed for his clients in numerous cases in the Indiana Court of Appeals and the Indiana Supreme Court.

      Mr. Burggraf is also recognized by the State of Indiana as a Registered Domestic Relations Mediator.  He has been highly successful in bringing both his 20+ years of family law experience and his years of real-life experience to  the service of couples or families in conflict to assist them in reaching realistic and practical solutions to their disputes that will promote the best interests of everyone involved without the necessity of contentious and expensive litigation.
