I was once a victim of a company that did not want to accept responsibily or be held accountable for there actions. I was a scared individual till the day i met Attorney James R Burn. From day one the things that he talked about reguarding my case never deviated or was his expectations ever second guessed. Through his Proffesional Knowledge, Devotion, and outstanding character my case was won and I get a chance to resume my life the way it once was. I have put the case behind me now and resumed life, but will never forget the countless hours Mr James Burn gave me about encouragement, being strong, and life ahead. These words came not only from an Attorney but a man with a considerate heart for individuals. I not only gained advise that i will carry a lifetime, but a Friend as well. The workplace can get very complex and confusing and would highly recommend James R Burns for proffesional advise in any related workmans compensation issue.
