Has done very efficient job with my B Felony case from conference with D.A , mitigating circumstances & written motions & follow up,etc.
he has a vast array of resources to utilize & great social workers to intervene & advocate alternative resolution besides jail.
but as an addict its hard to live up to your "End" of the bargain & i may be needing a higher level of care.As pending charges may arrive i am hoping for help thru Mr. Burney once again & a
favorable disposition is reached.

I was arrested on a misdemeanor drug charge. The government offered me 3 days community service, but I pled Not Guilty upon the urging of my attorney who felt fairly assured that he could preserve my clean criminal record. There were moments over the next two months that I felt very nervous, and even wished I had taken the government's offer. However, my attorney worked closely with Mr. Burney to negotiate a far better plea than what had been offered. Although they were not able to get the charge dismissed entirely, I walked away with a clean criminal record, a mere violation (equivalent of a moving violation), and no community service. I had direct contact with Mr. Burney who struck me as kind, compassionate and highly knowledgeable. I'm aware that he assisted my attorney in drafting a motion and handled some of the conversations with the D.A. It was excellent team work, and I'm very glad that I stuck it out and can honestly say to whoever might inquire that I have never been convicted of a crime.

This review concerns a criminal case. I was never arrested in this matter rather I was a witness. I had given testimony to the police which I later realized was, on the balance, false and inaccurate and which tragically led to the arrest of a close friend. There was a possibility that I might have faced a perjury charge. I went to Mr. Burney for a consultation. He struck me as brilliant and compassionate. Outside of the consultation, I did not hire him for this matter as I had not been and was never arrested. Rather, I utilized the advice he gave me to settle the matter without being formally represented by an attorney. Nonetheless, I greatly appreciate the assistance given in one of the most scary and horrific situations in my life.

Nathan and I recently worked together on a complex criminal antitrust case. His grasp of the issues was superb and his preparation and skillful presentation resulted in the court's rejection of the government's expert testimony in favor of the defense analysis. He was a pleasure to worth with.
