High Asset Long Term Marriage - Wife's outrageous spending over the year prior tripled our average expense budget - she wanted the assets (many) we saved for plus a manipulated/fabricated lifestyle analysis always told me that the great lawyers are the ones who know their case, inside and out, and his case knowledge clearly showed early and often. Her entire case was claiming fraud and cross examining me about spending, while Todd hit the statutory factors while pleasantly cross-examining my wife whose basic response was always it was my fault, or lawyer #1 or lawyer #2 The judge literally at the last possible moment required Todd and Trina to produce an accounting/tracing of funds that spanned nearly 20 years...on the fly. This was never at issue at the hearing, but the new opposing counsel wanted it. Their calm teamwork and overall knowledge was perfectly balanced by their laser focus as the data was found...and it mirrored our theme of the case, No order yet, but I witnessed a very smooth and effective team of Todd and Trina (his paralegal) and I received 50/50 for both decision-making and parenting time...this with a temporary protection order in place for nearly one year based on lies. We spent so much time preparing for our impeachment only for my wife to, after 11 months and 20 days, decide that the PPO wasn't needed and it was immediately dismissed! Amazing still the amount of waste and costs related to preparation. With Income, I watched Todd reinforce our positions through discrediting theirs as if we were at an amusement park dart with balloons game. Dart #1 - pop, Dart #2 - pop, and so on. Todd repeated for weeks leading up to hearing that the case was about income and lifestyle, and they spent their time asking how bills could have been paid with such a lower income. The answer was known by Todd and Trina because they knew the case...they mastered the case facts...and smoke and mirrors always loses to the truth provided you hired lawyers who are strategic, skilled, study the case and knowledgeable. I've been on the other side when I used a cheaper lawyer. This case cost me over 100K over one year. Another lesser lawyer could have saved me $80,000, but Todd and his firm were worth it and more, Just the confidence alone is worth that money!
Todd doesn't bill his time much throughout the case. Other exceptional associates handled a lot, then it came to Trina to start the hearing preparations working hand in hand with me. Then, when Todd starting his final preparation it was literally watching and listening to "Enter Sandman" from Yankees games as the closer, Mariano Rivera, walked to the mound.
Todd is a CLOSER. He is what everyone needs if it's a big case with a lot at stake with children and/or money. Todd ends cases, I am a believer.

Almost speechless! Todd Burnham and his team are Amazing! I came to Todd who was highly recommended by a friend. My daughter was under a Temporary Protection Order and Todd was quick to act, fighting for her safety. Todd successfully secured restricted parenting time. The commitment and dedication given to my case was outstanding and relentless.
I had a couple of different attorneys prior to coming to Todd and I was very frustrated with their advice and lack of action regarding my situation. They continued to tell me “I did not have enough” to take to a judge while things continued to get worse for my daughter, whose safety was compromised.
Todd did something I had been told was impossible and he did it quickly.
If you have a child safety issue, family or divorce situation, I strongly suggest consulting with the Burnham Law Office.

I knew Todd was the attorney I wanted from the moment I spoke with him on the phone for the first time. In our brief conversation, he understood what I needed and what he was going to be dealing with in my ex-husband and his attorney. After our first meeting in person along with Andrew, it was a done deal. Todd is very laid back yet brilliant at what he does. Todd's strategic approach, reassurance, and re-evaluation during each step and hurdle is second to none. He and Andrew know the law and strategically used it throughout the case. Based on my situation, Todd promised me the best outcome for my son and I, and he delivered exactly what he promised! He's not the cheapest attorney out there, but he's well worth it. He doesn't charge for every little thing, quick updates, emails and does his best to be cost effective. Todd, Andrew, Lisa and his associates are hands down the BEST at what they do! I'm truly grateful for all he has done for me and family!

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.

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.
