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.
