John Burns
John was extremely helpful in my case. Very accessible and did everything he could to help me. I trust this man to put me in the right position to win.

Workplace discrimination
John is currently representing me in a discrimination in the workplace case. I find that John is very approachable, responds to my calls personally and is committed to a positive outcome. I made contact with other attorneys and often felt as if me or my case wasn't of a significant enough nature for them. I feel that meeting John is a blessing for me and his work ethic and commitment give me hope that my situation will be rectified. I would recommend John to others without question or hesitation.

Proactive Attorney
I highly recommend Burns Law Firm. I personally dealt with Mr Burns and the experience I had was great! He kept in contact with me and took immediate action and most importantly he listened and took a personal interest in helping me. I would recommend Mr Burns to anyone looking for the best representation His firm is very genuine in their efforts to represent you and handle your case. The Burns law firm has great attorneys and if you need great legal council and legal representation these are the guy's that will get the job done...

Wonderful attorney!
Jonathon Burns helped us oppose a liquor license in our neighborhood. Without his knowledge of the law and his confident direction, the outcome would certainly have been different. Mr. Burns' integrity and his belief in equality for all was present in every conversation and piece of correspondence I shared with him. If you are looking for a very educated, trustworthy, responsible and attentive attorney, I highly recommend Mr. Burns.

Adverse possession
Jonathan is very helpful in looking out for my best interests in trying to resolve a case of land claim (boundary) dispute. After he fully explained all of the available options, we have begun a plan of action that is the least expensive to me and hopefully will resolve this situation. Having Jonathan with me gives me complete confidence that we will prevail in this dispute.

Calmness Amidst The Storm
After my mother's unexpected death, it was a tumultuous time in my family, particularly since she did not leave a will or appoint a power of attorney. John Burns helped us to easily navigate through the probate issues that arose from this situation. He was also the calming voice of reason when other issues popped up. Though he was knowledgable, more importantly, if he did not know something, he readily admitted it, and quickly obtained an answer for us. I would definitely utilize his services again.

Lair, took my money and ran
I had hired Mr. Burns after he had told me he could help me with my case of discrimination in the work place. He collected over $1300 from me, and then disappeared, leaving my case open. He contacted me a few months after and said he was shutting down his firm and would send me paperwork to release him of his responsibility of being my lawyer. I never got any paperwork and he doesn't return my phone calls about a refund. Be careful when dealing with this guy, he is a very dishonest man.
