About me

Aubrey Burton, Jr.’s thriving Maryland and Washington, D.C. law practice has been built through experience in both the public and private sector. Coming from law school, Attorney Burton first served as law clerk in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia as well as in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Thereafter, Attorney Burton moved to the private sector, wherein he handled all of the domestic and family law cases for a small southern Maryland law firm.  In 2005, Attorney Burton opened the Burton Firm, LLC. 


Attorney Burton focuses his practice on family and domestic matters. Such matters include, but are not limited to: divorce; child custody and visitation; grandparent visitation issues; contempt prosecution and defense; child support; deviations from the child support guidelines; alimony; separation agreements; marital property agreements; prenuptial agreements; peace orders; protective orders; standby guardian nominations; modifications of preexisting orders; and post judgment motions, exceptions to Magistrate's Recommendations, and appeals.


In addition to serving as the principal for the Burton Firm, LLC, Attorney Burton is also an officer in the United States Air Force Judge Advocate General Corps Reserve.  As a reserve judge advocate, Attorney Burton has counseled numerous servicemembers and dependents regarding their rights, duties, and obligations in family law matters.  Moreover, Attorney Burton has provided training to judge advocates and civillians regarding divorce, custody, child support, alimony, and other family law matters.  As such, Attorney Burton is uniquely qualified to assist servicemembers and their spouses with their legal needs.


Attorney Burton regularly practices in Prince George's County, Charles County, Montgomery County, Anne Arundel County, Calvert County, Howard County, and throughout southern Maryland. Attorney Burton is licensed to practice law in Maryland, California, and the District of Columbia.
