Excellent Estate Lawyer
Michael is very thorough and knowledgeable about estates, will, trusts, etc.. He spent so much time with us going over every detail of our wills. I felt very comfortable talking with him. He is very passionate about estate planning and I would recommend him to anyone.

Estate Work
My firm uses Michael to prepare estate documents for our clients. We like the fact that he is knowledgeable in his field, works hard for the right result, not just a result.

personal/professional client
Michael has represented me both professionally and personally. I've found him to be excellent in both situations and have reccommended him to my personal friends and my family. If he's unsure of anything he'll either find out or reccommend someone who is familiar with that portion of the law. I've found him to be of excellent character and will continue to reccommend his services to everyone I know.

Ordinance Legal Assistance
I requested Mr. Burnett to assist me with a city ordinance violation regarding a mailbox. The problem from an outsiders view may seem simple but in reality, it was a very complicated and difficult legal issue. From the very beginning, Mr. Burnett was knowledgeable and professional. He knew exactley what to do and how to best handle it. He was consistent and straight forward. He did an excellent job in communicating my side of the issue with the city authorities and negotiating a fair and just outcome. His fees were reasonable and he accomplished everything he told me he would do and more. I highly recommend his service.

Vice President of a Corporation
Our company had been misrepresented in a binding contract and Mr. Burnett cleared our company name and got the responsible party to correct the situation.

Best Attorney I have ever worked with!
I would definitely recommend Michael Burnett to anyone. He has wonderful character, and is very compassionate. Always on time and goes out of his way. He was very knowledgeable in the laws and courts. I was FINALLY able to get a Divorce. I have tried with another Attorney and had a horrible experience. I am very thankful he took my case.
