Professional, capable, and trustworthy.
After a poor experience with not one but two (!) other attorneys in Austin, I reached out to Travis for help tying up loose ends from my divorce. He & his team got the job done quickly, and because they were so efficient, my limited engagement cost me much less than I expected. Travis and his team are communicative, available, and thorough. I especially appreciated how Travis always treated me with respect and listened to my concerns, offering sound guidance and setting realistic expectations. Divorce is already emotionally and financially taxing, and choosing the wrong attorney can amplify that exponentially. If you're looking for a calm, steady presence during a challenging season, look no further than the folks at Burnett Turner. I'm grateful that I've finally found a team that I'm proud to have in my corner.

Get that Divorce DONE!
Divorce is a tumultuous process, especially when dealing with a complex case and high conflict personalities. Travis Turner and his team are serious professionals! They are intensely thorough and protect their client from every angle. Not a single detail is overlooked, and I ended up with a MAJOR win! To accomplish this in 8 months, we beat Texas' average length of divorce of 11 months. And most impressive is their responsiveness. I never waited more than 24 for a reply. Many times within a few hours. If anything, they were reaching out to me often to hear from me. Expect a complete, thorough and efficient legal process with Travis.

Divorce and custody case
Travis Turner and his team were an amazing help with my case. Though I did not have a full service case, they were amazing through the whole process of reviewing my case and making sure things unfolded as I wanted. They have been very responsive with follow up questions, and I know that if I needed to hire them for more work or for revisiting this case, that they would be thorough and work hard for me.

Rating Travis Turner, attorney
Travis Turner is a knowledgeable, efficient divorce attorney. During my recent divorce, he confidently represented me and demonstrated a caring, personable, but no nonsense demeanor. I divorced after 43 years of marriage. This was scary to go through, but Travis helped me feel confident that he would make sure my wishes for settlement would be accomplished and they were. I’m so glad he was in my corner. His fees are reasonable and he used his time wisely. I would highly recommend Travis Turner to anyone needing a great divorce attorney. Melissa

Expert Attorney
Travis and his paralegal, Gina, guided me expertly and thoughtfully through every step of my divorce. They anticipated my needs and were always available and quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. Divorce is not an easy process but I felt with them behind me I was in great hands.

Client interest in mind
As I was doing the initial selection of the lawyer for my divorce, Travis already was different from others that I consulted. Noticing he has a DSM on his shelves in his office showed me his interest and readiness to deal cleverly with challenging negotiators. He also recommended to evaluate another attorney closer to my county court for practicality and to reduce the travel cost. Eventually, I choose him and do not regret it. Travis communicated clearly his plan and we agreed on reasonable targets in the 1st few weeks of the case while still preparing for an eventual court hearing. Months later, after long negotiations, the agreement ended up at the initial targets while avoiding the uncertainty of the court. Travis and his compassionate team (Ruth, Gina, and Alexis) took the time to answer all the many questions I had during the case and I felt that as a team, they have shared advice to try to minimize the overall cost and the pain of the process. I would recommend his services.

Attention to detail wins!
Travis Turner represented me in a very complex divorce that included numerous partnerships, companies, and property. After a "no hope" determination from another attorney, I hired Travis to see what his team could do... it was the right decision. Through months of study, research, and sheer determination, Travis Turner was able to bring us to trial and negotiate a very successful outcome for me. Travis is brilliant, no question, but he knows when to ask for help from another lawyer with expertise on a topic. The collaboration he orchestrated for my case included the preeminent minds of law in the State of Texas. I am eternally grateful to Travis and the Burnett-Turner team for their professionalism and determination to win against all odds. I highly recommend.

Best Divorce Attorney I have ever worked with.
Unfortunately I have employed 7 divorce attorneys over the course of my life. With the exception of Travis Turner, I have been disappointed by all of them. They don't do the work, they miss details, they don't seem to care, and they charge me $300 to ask me how my day is going. Travis is not only the most compassionate, and honest attorney that I have ever worked with, he is also supremely talented at his job. He gets things done quickly and efficiently. He is smarter, more clever, and more up on the law than any attorney I have ever worked with. Perhaps the best thing about Travis though is his personality and sincerity. Divorces are characteristically unpleasant and often a miserable experience. It's an odd thing to say, but I actually had fun working with Travis. Not only would I recommend Travis to anyone, I would tell anyone that chooses any attorney over Travis is being foolish. Travis also, more than paid for his professional fees--due to the enormous amount of savings he created in my settlement. Sincerely, Kirk R., M.D.

Travis made a difficult scenario very easy to deal with, he always had my best interests at hand and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone that is looking for representation. He saved me thousands by being professional, respectful and keeping me informed along the way.

Travis & his team were amazing
I hired Travis to handle my divorce. Travis & Ruth were amazing. His team handled my case quickly & with confidence. Travis was there to defend me & Ruth was always there to keep me calm. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to represent me. Their experience & passion truly showed through the whole process. They never let me feel alone or scared about what was going to happen. Hailey is another huge asset to their team! I was always informed about everything going on & know they had my best interest at heart. Having this team represent me was like having family members handle my case. In the end my girls & I were secure. This I owe to Travis, Ruth & Hailey. Thank you

A-List Attorney
Travis Turner, Ruth and Scott Nyitray are better than the best. First, Travis is on another level when it come to family law. His professionalism, thoughtfulness, and straight forward approach is what makes him above everyone else. Travis is the most talented and gifted attorney I have ever used. He treated me like a person and not like a number. If I needed him for any reason he was there. On one occasion when I needed him the most, there were no questions asked. He put on his coat and took care of business. To have someone like that on your side during one of the most difficult times in your life makes the process a little easier. I would highly recommend Travis for any family law issue you may have. Second, Scott Nyitray is one amazing attorney too. Scott worked with me on many issues during my case. Watching him work in the court room is truly astounding. Between Scott and Travis they knew everything about my case. Scott was always on point. Like Travis, he would take care of business. To have Scott and Travis on my team was truly a blessing. Lastly Ruth. I cannot say enough good things about Ruth. All the good things I have to say about Ruth would make War and Peace a short story. Ruth was my life line during this difficult time. Her compassion and the simple fact she would listen is more than anyone could ask for. She looked after me like a mother would. Ruth is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. I would highly recommend this team to anyone going though family issues. Do not waste your time with other attorneys. Make Burnett Turner your first and only choice. Let Travis, Scott and Ruth guide you through this difficult time. You will not regret your decision in hiring them.

Quality Representation
Travis was extremely helpful in resolving my legal case. He was able to guide me through the process, helped me set and manage expectations, and obtained the resolution that I wanted. After dealing with the antics from the opposing side, I am grateful that I received a positive referral for Travis and retrained his representation. He clearly demonstrated what a quality counsel is and should be after dealing with the opposing side. Family issues can be challenging and stressful but throughout the process Travis was able to keep the focus on the issues and most importantly his confidence kept my stress level to a minimum. I highly recommend Travis and his firm.

Travis provided excellent representation
Divorce is never easy even if amicable. There are always complexities and it was so settling and reassuring to have Travis navigate me through the entire process. He is very easy to talk with and never passes judgment. He just want to find a path for you that results in a fair settlement. During the process I could focus on other important aspects of my life such as work since I knew Travis was on top of my case and making sure everything was proceeding properly. Gina, his paralegal, was also an important part of the team. She was always very calming when there were aspects of the process which I did not understand or times when I was concerned. She really helped me focus on what was most important. Divorce is never easy but no matter the situation Travis and Gina are a great team. They will help you navigate the process to a fair settlement and most importantly give you the confidence that your matters are being properly handled.
