Akin Gump Alumnus: Robert K. Burger

Robert K. Burger was a legal assistant at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld during my tenure at the firm: 1988-1991.  My earliest recollection of him is from the year 1990.  I can remember he was friendly with the summer interns with whom I shared office space on the ninth floor: Matthew Erskine (University of Virginia, 1991), Ben Greenberg (University of Pennsylvania), and Robert Wyman (Brown University, 1991).

He seemed to be one of the few normal people in the firm: not caught up in the cult-like atmosphere that dominated the legal assistant program.

An undated recollection:  I was terminated by Akin Gump effective October 29, 1991.  In about November 1991 I was walking down Connecticut Avenue in downtown Washington.  Burger was with a group of friends.  He spotted me and called out, "Hey, Gar!"
