Excellent expertise and service
Jonathan has helped me personally but I've also referred close friends or family multiple times and the experience has absolutely been first class. Whether it's been an actual case or just important legal advice needed, Jonathan has delivered and been a pleasure to go work with. I'd recommend to anyone looking for great representation if they've been injured, knows someone who's been injured or just needs some good objective legal advice.

" settlement was much more than I ever expected."
After my car accident in 2014 Mr. Jonathan Stephen Burns took my case. I wasn't trying to get rich, I just didn't want to deal with the insurance companies. It seemed like a very slow process at first, but once Mr. Jonathan Stephen Burns took over my case everything went settlement was much more than I ever expected. I would recommend Mr. Jonathan Stephen Burns to everyone and he will be the first one I call if I every need another attorney. Thanks Again, Vanessa Attart, MBA

Car accident
I hired Jonathan Burns to handle a personal injury case due to injuries I suffered in a car accident and he did an exceptional job. He was not only professional, efficient and caring, but his level of communication through this process was unmatched from previous experiences. In addition, the result really exceeded my expectations.
