Mrs. Sutton
This attorney was very clear and precise in his advice. He offered an answer to all questions. He provided resources to stuff he could not offer advice on.

The best
This is hands-down the best traffic lawyer in the business in my opinion...when every lawyer I spoke with said nothing could be done Mr. Burns got solid results. Choosing a lawyer without at least giving him a call would be a mistake..

Helpful and friendly - Easy to work with
Mike was extremely helpful and made our process simple for us to understand and complete. He was prompt and efficient. He also helped a neighbor who was having some great difficulties. He spoke with her, calmed her anxiety and directed her to proper authorities who could help her. He did this pro bono and then followed up with both her and me to be sure she was taken care of. I highly recommend Michael Burns.

A tenacious fighter for you!
Mike took on my tractor-trailer case and was Courteous and professional but when dealing with the Insurance company Mike was relentless when it came to fighting for me. I couldn’t have hired a better attorney and am very pleased with the settlement that Mike was able to negotiate on my behalf.

Assault 1
Very nice gentleman and we only conversed through email. Don't talk to police and get an attorney is just information and I can learn from my cat. He meant well but that type of general information is one size fits all. This is the same review for the three attorneys who answered my question with such generalities.
Response from Michael Burns August 17, 2019
I appreciate your review, however, you do not understand the limitations attorney’s have on such a site. Since there is not an attorney/client relationship, we are not ethically able to give legal advise. In most cases, we are generally given a small piece of incomplete information limiting our ability to give any type of concise response. Since we cannot give legal advice and have incomplete information, we would be remiss not to recommend speaking with an attorney.

Guys a douche
He's a smart @$$ pri**! Judges people based on assumption in stead of getting facts!
Response from Michael Burns November 17, 2021
I am sorry you feel that way. I made no assumptions and I was not judging you, I simply responded to the question you asked based on the facts that you provided. Here was the question asked "Can a officer pull my girlfriend's car over just to see if I'm driving it? Over the past several months I've been hit numerous times for driving on suspended license. Last night I was riding home with my girlfriend and we passed a officer that I've dealt with in the past. He quickly turned around and follows us to our driveway and hits his lights. He walked up to the driver's side window where my gf was sitting and never said a word to her and looked straight at me and said, "ok just making sure you wasn't driving", then walked back to his car and left. I'm being harassed. Can I sue him and the department?" Here was my response: based on you "being hit numerous times for driving on a suspended license" and, I assume it happened one or more times in your GFs car, the officer likely had reasonable suspicion that you were driving the car illegally, again. That is all he needs to make an investigatory stop. No you cannot sue him or the department. Stop driving on a suspended license.
