    • I do not recommend Paul Burns.
    • I hired Paul more than 3 years ago.
    • Paul handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    This man took me for a ride for three years, lied to me, would not return my calls, refused to follow through on a simple request and had me pay bills as well as charged me $5,000.00 and we had a contingent agreement. He failed to file my case for a year and a half even with me asking him about it and he promised he would get it done over a half dozen times. Two and a half yrs. after i payed him he pushed back my trial date due to not being ready. Trial date was pushed back a third time by him and then he demanded $5,000.00 be deposited into his account, when i refused he withdrew from my case. He will not release my file to my replacement attorney until i give him another $907.00. God bless you if you hire him. I would not use him if it was free. Beware!

    Paul has no idea what he is doing as far as business litigation goes. He completely wasted 8500 dollars I had given him, drug my case out for 2 years and I was worse off when I finally had to fire him! I wouldn't hire this guy with money that was given to me.

    Paul has been an excellent employment & disability attorney for me. He has been honest & upfront with me from the very first consultation we had. He has worked with me to put ME and my needs FIRST in what he is doing and has never done anything on my case without discussing it with me first. He has never tried to give me false hope in what he is doing on my case. With so many attorneys out there advertising on TV and trying to feed their own egos, I TRULY appreciate Paul's honesty, integrity, belief in me and his KNOWLEDGE of the law.
