    This is a review for Mr Burton. So grateful that I choose him as my first choice in obtaining Social Security benefits. He had faith in this case and even with a judge that does not easily award benefits, we won. He knows exactly how to conduct a hearing to maximize chances of winning a case. Absolutely grateful for him and his expertise in these types of cases. Very personable and supportive person. You will love him.

    Mrs McKinnish was my second lawyer in my divorce. Unfortunately I didn't find her first and it cost me time and money . She was responded to my every email or phone call and during a time like this that was important to me . She didn't waste my time or money with a lot of meaningless meetings like some attorneys will do . She prepared ME for the worst but fought for the best . My results in court exceeded my expectations after the first attorney botched my case . A absolute yes as a recommendation .

    Mr Burton , This is just a short not to say thank you for your help. At no time did I ever feel neglected or put off by your staff during this process. Everyone in your office were always helpful and never left my questions unanswered. Julia was exceptionally helpful and made the experience go much easier for me. I know you and your staff have no control over Social Security and their is nothing you can do to speed up the process. Hurry up and wait is all we can do. Thank you and your staff for all you have done, Wayne

    I have known Ben and Jennifer for about 5 years now and immediately knew they were the right team for my family and our needs. Just recently I called and asked them to meet me in 30 minutes for a meeting that came up unexpectedly and they made it happen without any hesitation. Hands down, without question, the only choice for us!

    Had a previous attorney who told me to settle my case without me even having visitation with my son. I went to Ms. McKinnish and thank the Lord everyday that I did. I now have my son most of the time and am the primary parent. My wife's attorney talked a big talk until Ms. McKinnish showed the attorney what we planned to do at trial. The other attorney caved the next day! Just put my son to bed in his own room down the hall from my own thanks to Ms. McKinnish

    Ms. McKinnish handled my child custody case. I had had a bad experience with a local attorney and Ms. McKinnish came in and cleaned up my last attorney's mess. I ended up with custody of my boys because of Ms. McKinnish. She was kind and personable with me and my family but was a bulldog when we went to Court. Ms. McKinnish was great about explaining things to me in a way I could understand. I only wish she had been my first attorney and not my last so that I wouldnt have missed so much time with my boys.

    This is probably the worst atty that I have ever encountered. I did all of the work for my divorce and called her to tell her what my ex and I had agreed upon and a wk later I would get a bill charging me for the work I had done. She did not return any phone calls. She never did what she promised to do. I was without child support for over a year and my children and I had it very rough. On mediation day she was over an hr late and my case started without me having any representation. When she did get there all she was concerned about was flirting with the other atty. She continued to talk to me about other clients cases and talked to the mediator in front of me about other people's cases. During the yr that she was my atty she had 3 different paralegals. I spoke with one of them after she left the firm and she said that she couldn't handle it anymore because Jennifer never did anything she had promised her clients and they would call or show up mad. The day of my divorce she showed up to court 32 mins late and laughed when she got there saying she was at the gym. She is romantically involved with her partner and her head is there. It's definitely not into her work. Please do not use her as an atty. She is absolutely horrible.
