I was recommended to Ms Burnett through a free service at Lawmart. She is absolutely the worst case senario. Ms Burnett never met with me to go over my case but suggested to converse by email? I should have known then that she was not going to be effective. Then she showed up one hour and fourty minutes late to the hearing which started without her! I called her and she never responded, I called the Kaine Law Firm who referred her where they also tried reaching her, it was already 1 hour and running the hearing started at 9:00, Once she arrived at 10:40 the judge ripped her apart for being late and she lied saying that she thought the hearing was at 10:00, but she was aware of the time and place, I spoke to her prior to the court date and she assured me that she would be there on time, not only did she not sequester the witnesses, she allowed them to stay in the courtroom and hear each others testimony which eventually hurt me. She was not prepared at all, arriving as late as she did not only meant that she did not have a chance to meet me or meet with me to discuss anything let alone a strategy, or get information from me that would have helped her during her questioning of my accusers. She was so disorganized and preoccupied with trying to find information from her papers that she allowed hear say to get on record, the judge actually stopped the witness and suggested it was hear say before Ms. Burnett realized that the testimony was being given and she should have been objecting to it! When she arrived the Judge had already started to question one of my witnesses and gotten clarity about what the accusers had suggested. I understand that I could have had the same outcome but I paid her to represent me and she did a very poor job of that. I contacted her for her to assist in getting a charge that was dismissed from the court system and she has refused contact, I believe that because it is a part of this case that she has a responsibility to follow up and assure that it has been removed from the system.

She is very unprofessional and is not a confidential lawyer. I was recommended to her by her husband. I spoke to her about my situation and later after speaking to her, her husband was able to discussed the circumstances of my case with someone and I heard about it. She is also very disrespectful. When she want to get her point across she gets very loud and disrespectful.
