Bill and his staff were very professional and knowledgeable. He helped me with getting my son back after almost 60 days without seeing him. I found Bill very easy to talk to and he put everything into language that was easy to understand. He and his associates were very friendly and courteous. They all made a very tough time a whole lot easier for me. I felt from day one that I was in good hands, and that everything would be taken care of and I would get my son back.

Over the years residing in Connecticut, I have gotten to know many attorneys in the New Haven - Stamford area. I no longer live in Connecticut, but I still require legal assistance from time to time in the state. I was hesitant to contact any of the family attorneys I have gotten to know over the years. After all, my family matters are now in a phase where I do not care to share my concerns with old friends. I took the opportunity to contact Attorney Burns based upon his profile as shown on selected reputable online sites. When Attorney Burns and I finally spoke, I must admit that I was caught off guard. It was simply meant to be an initial consultation, yet he took a great deal of time to answer all my concerns in a very comprehensive, clear and highly competent manner. He went far beyond what was required in an initial consultation. At one point, he asked for a few minutes to research a matter of legal interpretation that we were discussing. Again, this was simply an initial consultation. It was the most caring conversation I have ever had with a family attorney. And, above all else, he put my mind completely at ease about my matter and provided me with a very clear path forward. I would advise anyone with a family law matter in the Connecticut area to seek the advice of Attorney Burns. It was most enjoyable speaking with him and I now feel I have the best attorney in Connecticut when needed for family matters!
