About Me

I am originally from New Jersey.  I graduated from college there and became a U.S. Marine Corps Officer on graduation. I was sent by the Marines to flight school and became a Marine pilot.  I flew transports and helicopters.  After leaving the Marine Corps I was hired by Trans World Airlines (TWA) as a pilot.  I became an Airline Captain for TWA and flew both domestic and international routes. I went to law school in California while still flying for TWA. I took early retirement from TWA to practice law full time.  I have been practicing law since 1981.  I met my wife while she was working for TWA as a Flight Attendant.  We have been married since 1974.  We have two grown children, a boy and a girl, who are both recently married. We live in Dana Point where I like to take long walks on the beach. I love being a personal injury attorney and taking good care of my clients. I am courteous and professional in everything I do but I insist on getting great results for my clients.  I do that by fighting hard for my clients against the  insurance companies and defense attorneys.  I would like to talk to you about your case. There is no charge to talk to me so please call me at 949-496-7000.  You can also e mail me at john@johnburnslaw.com.  My website also has numerous videos of me answering different questions about the law at www.theorangecountyaccidentlawyer.com.  My clients have also written testimonials about me that you can see on my website.  I look forward to speaking with you and meeting you personally.  John P. Burns
