We made the best choice.
Searched a lot but something hit us & after all, we made the best decision by hiring Jack Burns. One of the most patient people we ever met. His detailed explanations of the process were precise in detail leaving no question about his abilities. Not a hurry up person who will spend whatever time it takes.

Such a Blessing
It was 2015 and God had just closed a door as my father had just passed away, I was lost. I did not know what to expect next or know where to go to find help but I knew I needed help. Frustrated, I made an appointment with Mr. Burns in the hopes of finding the answers I was needing. I met with Mr. Burns and suddenly the load I was carrying was lifted. Mr. Burns explained what I needed to do, what was going to happen next and what he was going to do to make it all happen and a couple of hours later it was done. Mr. Burns has been such a blessing and a warrior in my case. He keeps me informed as to the progress of my case and all procedures that are forthcoming. If a lawyer with compassion for your situation and the legal expertise to get the job done is what you are him make an appointment I promise you will not be disappointed.

He was really nice and helpful
I called Mr. Burns about a bankruptcy issue. I couldn't get other lawyers to talk to me on the phone but he talked to me for 20 minutes and answered my questions. He was very nice and if I file bankruptcy I'll defenitely hire him.

I went in and spoke to Jack Burns after speaking to him over the phone. I paid a deposit and felt the wait of the world was lifted off my shoulders. I made several more payments. I have called him numerous times and left numerous messages and Jack Burns never returns my calls. I wrote him a letter I still have never received anything from Mr Burns nothing at all. I have requested a refund because this man has done nothing for me nothing. I think this is unprofessional behavior on his part this took place starting in February I'll still call him and I never can reach him. So something that started out good turned into an awful experience for me and the man has my money and will not give it back to me. So I have contacted the attorney general's office I have contacted the law board and now I'm going to the Better Business bureau all the man had to do was talk to me and return my money. I feel like that he scammed me out of my money
