Excellence in compassion and justice
I am partnering with Attorney Brandon Burton. The company as a hole as made this a pleasant time. I appreciate the place because it has a “southern hospitality” feel. I had contacted him with tons of questions , I was aching, and confused. My life was spinning out of my control ,such as , ;the changes I was undergoing after I was injured at work that were affecting my abilities. I am already going though a lot and they made it easy to consult and easy to engage with. I am glad that I hired him.

Burton & Associates are Very top Notch
Brandon & his staff are hardworking, honest,professional & informative. Ive used Brandon on 3 back surgeries 1 knee surgery. Each time he explained the process to me. Its very comforting having a Law Firm that represents the hurt worker to protect their rights & help them to get their benefits. I highly recommend anyone to use Brandon & his law Firm .

The Law Office You Need
Burton's office was extremely helpful from the beginning. This office treats you like a person and not a number. The judge in my workers comp case didn't guide me what I deserved, but the law office did their best to fight for me. My family is forever grateful! We we're blessed to have these people. Athlea was great as well! Highly recommended!

Information
When someone else is responsible for your injury, you can make them accountable for your pain, suffering, expenses, and lost wages. While certain risks are a typical trade-off for certain types of jobs, such as in construction, where you are always in harm’s way, be it because of heavy machinery or compromised work gear, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than you deserve should you face actual injury at work. Get a construction injury lawyer from Burton Law, just like I, and many before me did, to help you navigate the workers comp waters and bring you the financial relief you deserve.

Great & Helpful Law Team
I am in dispute with a current employer over an unfair gender bias that has knowingly hampered my well-deserved promotion. Burton Law Group’s employment discrimination attorney has been abundantly generous in his compassion and care while handling this case which is tough for me to handle solo as I am compelled to face my employer daily at work. I admire his in-depth knowledge of the law, as he makes sure he does everything correctly to propel my case forward. To see it through and find the best possible resolution that will take my career on an uphill journey.

Best Law Company in Oklahoma
A relative of mine had to quit his job after meeting with a serious car accident. Life, of course, became hellish before he could count 10. Since the accident had rendered him incapable of working he needed legal assistance by way of applying for social security disability insurance benefits. A social security attorney in OKC from the Burton Law Group helped him prepare and submit his claim, his experience and expertise in filing SSDI and SSI claims shining through the entire process. I am happy to say his claim was reviewed by the Social Security Administration and passed.

Highly Recommeded
Brandon Burton is a well respected and admired lawyer in his respective fields of practice. I am confident in my referrals to his office. As a practicing attorney myself and having referred my mother to Brandon on a workers compensation case, I know him to be extremely courteous, professional and ethical in his endeavors. Brandon is diligent and tenacious in representation of his clients. I would not hesitate to recommend or hire him again.

Initial conversation to start case
I was so impressed with the kindness and understanding of my workers Comp injuries , but yet was very upfront and honest to what will , or might lay ahead of such being denial or acceptance of my case , so no income or medical assistance might be until case settled. Also making me aware of the new laws that protects mainly the company and not the injured , only getting workers comp pay of upto 8 weeks if no surgical procedures recommended ? Thank you for your kindness and the education of what I am facing .

Excellent attorney. NONE better than Brandon Burton.
Brandon Burton represented me for both Worker's Comp and Social Security. He is never too busy to address any concerns and is quick to reply. I cannot imagine any better representation. Very personable and he really does care for his clients and has their best interest at heart.

Workers Compensation client review
After working with another firm with less than satisfactory results, I moved to Burton Law Firm. Mr. Burton has always taken time to answer questions personally and in a timely manner whether via phone or email. It is obvious he has the best interest of the client in mind and offers outstanding counsel.
Posted by Robert | August 30, 2013
Always helpful.
Brandon has been handling my workers comp case for the last 2 1/2 years. He is always on top of my case, even when there appears to be a bump in the road.. Whether I have a call into him or I have emailed a question, he is always there with the info to answer my question.

Best Lawyer in OKLAHOMA
Brandon has always responded to all of my problems with apersonal care. What I mean by this he never acts like he needs to do something else. If I have a question he takes time to answer it that makes since to me. I could go on and on about Brandon Burton because I have seen him as a person that cares about his CLIENTS. What I mean he wants you to get the best results for your case . He will not sell you out just to make a few dollars. He is in for the very best results that can be gotten. I fill he is the BEST LAWYER I have ever meet. Brandon has been handling my case since FEB.2002,still getting me great results..........

Brandon Burton, my personal experience
After being injured at work and trying to navigate the swampy waters of Worker's Comp, I hired Mr. Burton to represent me. With his help, I was able to receive the surgery that I needed to provide relief to my right hand and elbow. Mr. Burton and his associates have handled my claim with the utmost professionalism and concern for MY well being. If I have a question, I can call or email and get a response, not just the reply of "we will get back to you when we have time." I have recommended Mr. Burton to several people that I knew that had a Worker's Comp claim. I appreciate all that he has done for me!

Review for Burton Law
Committed and relentless are understatements. Burton Law Group is serious when they say they will fight for and with you until the end. In my journey with Burton Law, not once did I feel like just another case in their file. The attention to detail that they give to every case is truly commendable. No wonder they come highly recommended by so many people when it comes to worker’s comp and personal injury cases. If you are in need of a reliable personal injury lawyer Tulsa, this group is definitely worth a ring. You will not regret welcoming them into your case, just like I and many others did.
