Chris Burns and his team were absolutely great throughout my entire case. Chris was very straight with me from the very beginning, letting me know my rights and how the process could turn out. He never wanted to provide false hope and was very professional at all times. From of our first conversation he had my trust and I knew this guy and his team had my best interest in mind. Like a good friend, not always telling you want you want to hear but what you need to hear.
My case was expected to last about 3 months but for various reasons it lasted nearly 9 months. Which was unfortunate but I knew they were doing what they could.
Something that may seem strange was the little communication throughout the process. There were only a few phone calls throughout the whole process and the rest via email (which I was very happy with since it's easier to respond to emails throughout the day than take phone calls).
Overall, even though it was unfortunate to have to seek a Bike Accident Attorney, I couldn't be happier than finding Chris and his team. If you are considering him, you definitely won't be regret it.
Best of Luck.

Chris is a remarkable man. He sees every case through to the finish line. This Vanderbilt grad has exceptionally handled hundreds of bicycle accident cases for more than 25 years. He champions the rights of wrongfully injured cyclists. He is an active member of the Jacksonville Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee and the Florida Bicycle Association. Not only does he advocate cycling, he’s competed in cycling and triathlon events, to include portions of the Tour de France! I endorse this lawyer.
