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!

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.
