On point
MS Burgess was prompt and responsive to all calls and requests. She came through for us on Labor Day when a lot of other lawyers were not responding. She showed up to court and completed the task we hired her to do.

Excellent lawyer
I hired Miss Burgess not knowing much about her at all and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. She is patient, thorough and very knowledgeable. She helped me get custody of my daughter which I have been trying to do for over 5 years. Not only would I recommend her, but I’ll call her for any and every one of my legal needs.

An Angel
When I say I am truly thankful that I had a family court lawyer like her. When I felt like everything was crashing down on me, she always kept pushing and fighting harder to give me that second chance to prove myself. Even when that second chance was more than once, she stuck by my side until I finally one the great fight. Amazing attorney and an even radiant soul. You will not be disappointed with her services. Thank you so much for all you have done!

The greatest
Being a woman in a so called mans world, Stephanie Burgess has what it takes to take on anything coming her way. As a court appointed attorney , she surpassed all the labels/misbeliefs/the negative labels that are given to 'pro bono attorneys' - not that she is one mind you, but i am here to tell you she's like a golden belt boxer in the ring and what gets her that title is unlike most attorneys, Even High Dollar attorneys, what gets her that golden belt is she fights w her heart. Stephanie Burgess gets in the ring and wins the match , no matter how big her opponent might be, who it is she's fighting for, she does it with heart. She's got growl. She never left my side and I wish I could thank her more.

David vs. Goliath
This story is about a lesson of courage, faith, and overcoming what seems impossible. I retained Stephanie Burgess as my lawyer to represent me in my child custody case against my ex-wife. From the beginning, I was going through severe anxiety and had cast doubt over my own case because I didn’t know what was going on. When I met with Stephanie Burgess, she assured me that everything will be ok and that I need to have courage, trust, and pray. Stephanie Burgess was very attentive to the details of my case and is very knowledgeable about the law. Stephanie Burgess focused on my concerns throughout the whole litigation process. In the court room is where I saw the most outstanding performance of my life. I was in shock and awe over her performance in the court room. Stephanie Burgess put on a great show and she was amazing!! She was met with an army of people from the opposing party that tried to destroy my character. Stephanie Burgess’ tactics were strong and swift. Stephanie Burgess carried her sling of knowledge and instead of throwing stones at the opposing party, she threw the words of the law. The performance Stephanie Burgess put on had my family and friends in shock and awe. My family and friends were very pleased with the results. Although the army of people from the opposing party left with disappointment, the decision made by the judge was fair. Stephanie Burgess is the most professional lawyer I’ve ever met. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone who needs legal advice and/or representation. If retaining her as your counsel, please be patient and trust in her knowledge and her profession. She had me and my child’s best interest at heart. Stephanie Burgess, Attorney at The Burgess Law Group deserves more than just the five (5) stars rating. I don't think there is enough stars to rate this lawyer and this law firm. Her motto speaks for itself, “The Small Firm with a Big Fight!!” Stephanie, thank you so much for what you’ve done for me, my family, and my friends. Mr. Marvin N. Frazier, II

The fighter you need to win!!!
I made contact with Stephanie through a mutual friend, seeking counsel for a change of custody. I found in her not only a knowledgeable attorney, but one who truly wanted to know me as a person, my motivations for seeking the change of custody, and she provided strength and stability when I desperately needed it. For me and my children, Stephanie was a blessing.

Excellent Attorney!! What a Godsend!!
Our church group's case was not in Ms. Burgess' specific area of expertise, but the law is the law and right is right!! She handled our case amazingly, with professionalism, patience and fortitude. We love and appreciate your hard work, diligence and support! You truly live up to your motto, The Small Firm with a Big Fight!! Thank You!

Best Law Firm in Savannah Bar None
I recommend this law firm to anyone willing to trust a professional at their job Ms Burgess handled my case so well I was stunned in the courtroom she performed so well and so confident I just couldn’t believe she was able to get results in such a hostile environment (Liberty County) if anyone knows their court system isn’t the easiest but Ms Burgess did not let that stop her one bit. For anyone looking for the best Lawyer bar none Burgess Law Group.

BEST ATTORNEY IN SAVANNAH
After going through 2 attorney's and not getting any justice in our custody battle for our niece. Stephiane Burgess was very professional and knowledgeable about the law. She took on our case after being bounced around by different lawyers. JUSTICE WAS SERVED ONCE WE PUT OUR CASES IN HER HANDS!! OUR FAMILY HAS OUR NEICE BACK UNDER ONE ROOF. What I loved about her is she kept it 100, the good, the bad and the ugly but she never left our side. She treated us like family and got business done. Thank you so much. We prayed for an lawyer just like her A FIGHTER till the end.

Great Experience
Burgess Law Group assisted me with a traffic violation. Ms. Burgess personally handled my suspended license case. Ms. Burgess did all of ground work and prep me for my hearing. She met with solicitor and my case was thrown out. Ms. Burgess also handles my family's legal issue. We trust her.
