Felonies Dismissed
I hired Mike to represent me on a felony fraud case in Montgomery county where I was caught red handed. I had bad felony priors. A few moments in the courthouse and him speaking to the DA and I walked out w a misdemeanor and probation. I recommend him.

Contractor Business Formation
I contacted Burns Law LLC to set up my carpentry business. I got a call back from Mike Burns that day and he was able to really give me a lot of information for free over the phone. I ended up hiring his firm to create my business LLC and he was very professional and nice to work with. Prices were very fair and reasonable and I now have him on retainer for anytime I have issues with my business. He was a carpenter before he was a lawyer so he knows the construction business very well. Its a big advantage there.

Bad lawyer
I hired burns law 18 months ago for some legal work. They told me numerous times to trust in them that the work is getting completed. Now I’m finding out they never started the work and I paid a 5k retainer 18 months ago. I’m extremely disappointed on how unprofessional Mike is. Stay away.
