Great Lawyer, Did A Fantastic Job!
I had a high stress case. My spouse and his attorney was extremely aggressive. Mr. Burnham was able to diffuse all the situations, was prompt and always answered my questions. His knowledge of the law and issues lead to a great outcome!

Top notch divorce lawyer!
Phil Burnham is an excellent divorce lawyer! HIs service exceeded my expectations and I found him to be more responsive and sensitive to my situation than the previous lawyer I had used. He was always on top of my case, filing all paperwork on time and reminding me of my responsibilities. He was very professional when meeting with other attorneys as well as with the judge. I highly recommend him as your divorce or family law attorney!
