Todd C. Burnham

also known as Todd, Burnham

About me

I am a family man who enjoys helping other families get through difficult times.  I am most grateful for my wife and wife reminding me that love is all that matters and my daughters reminding me that my presence is all that's required. I am passionate about my family and the firm's clients.


Raised by a single working mother, who was a social worker for 30 years, becoming a family law attorney has been a natural progression for me.  I was fortunate to be exposed to excellent mentors at a young-ish age.  I learned more from my time as a new attorney working for a NYS Chief of Police than I ever did elsewhere...I learned to study human nature and have since honed those skills and instincts, while strategizing future moves, while other attorneys only see what is in front of them.  I focus on what will likely happen and make strategic decisions, throughout the entirety of the case, aimed at achieving clients' goals.  Each and every lawyer in this firm handles complex family matters.


I get family law. I prioritize children, and I strategize every case with our clients.  We are focused on being the best.  Everyday.  All day.

  • Courtney Jane Cline

    Todd is an excellent divorce litigation attorney. He is honest, aggressive, and knows his cases cold. He certainly isn't afraid of the courtroom yet looks for the win-win scenario. He is both a challenging adversary and excellent to work with.

  • Brian J. Bagley

    Todd and I have worked together on the same side of many issues, as well as opposing sides of many more. I have always found Todd to be competent, professional, and honest. While many don't think it's possible, Todd and I have always been able to find the "win" for all sides. He's a credit to our profession and I look forward to the next time I have the chance to rub shoulders with him and his firm.
