    TODD BURNHAM: intuitive, passionate, impregnable, unrelenting, and capable of bringing desired outcomes. Here is my story: I went through a very ugly, lengthy, and contentious divorce. A divorce complete with infidelity, domestic violence, restraining orders, no-contact orders, and repeated motions filed by my ex-husband. The legal drama and turmoil was ominous. Unfortunately, having never been through a divorce before, I had to go through two worthless attorneys before I finally found "the one." Todd Burnham and his firm actually fought for me and made things "right" after over 3 years of things being extremely “wrong.” How I wish I had discovered Mr. Burnham and his firm 3 years earlier. It is mind boggling to think of how different things could have been! Based on his performance, I think it is fair to conclude I would not have gone through all the legal turmoil, emotional agony, parental alienation and hostile drama causing major decline in the children as evidenced by physical and verbal outbursts at school, suicidal ideations and floundering academic performance. And yet, given all of these outward cries for help, the children were not allowed to seek professional help. “Joint decision making” vetoed every positive attempt I made to assuage the children confusion, anger and grief. I felt helpless as a mother, to intervene on behalf of the children until I joined forces with the Burnham Law Firm. Todd Burnham, Gavin Halligan, and JP Prentiss are knowledgeable, confident and skilled with precise execution of strategic moves to win difficult legal cases like my own. Under their guidance, I endured a year-long custody battle that culminated in a change in parenting time and decision making, giving me the upper hand to make a change. After many depressing losses, the truth was finally exposed and we won our case! I now have majority custody of the children during the school year and sole decision making! The children are finally settled and healing as evidenced by their emotional, academic and social growth from counseling, involvement in sports, tutoring and “hands on” parenting.
    If my story sounds even remotely familiar, DO NOT WASTE ANYMORE PRECIOUS TIME! You need a team that will actually fight and win. I will never use another attorney to deal with my ex-husband. It is the Burnham Law firm or nothing else! There are so many attorneys out there with greedy hands, ready to take your money. Unfortunately, they fail to deliver. Todd and the Burnham Law firm will NOT LET YOU DOWN. I hope that by reading my story, you can also eventually find the peace and closure that the Burnham Law Firm has afforded me. Todd Burnham, Gavin Halligan, and JP Prentiss at the Burnham Law Firm have changed my life. I will forever be grateful for the closure I now have after so many years of fighting with bitter angst and disgust with our legal system.

    Todd C. Burnham’s response: “Thank you so much for this testimonial. It embodies everything we stand for, and strive to be, for each and every client. This was such a challenging case with an opposing party who was manipulative, abusive, controlling and dishonest. I'm proud of the results in your case which were based in large part on you being equally relentless. Congratulations!”
  • Too expensive for me - yet amazing

    I met with Todd for my inevitable divorce. I don't normally take the time to write reviews, especially for someone who I probably can't afford to hire, but I left blown away. Todd is Whole Foods. He is more expensive than others but what you purchase there is so much better for you!
    He listened to my situation. He asked questions about my husband and my children. He nailed my husband and who he is, how he acts, the anger and verbal abuse, the blame and the pattern that has escalated. I was beyond impressed, and a bit shocked. He outlined a plan of action that he would take, and did so even though I told him that I didn't think I could afford his services. He knew I drove a long way to meet with him and respected me and my situation.
    I just thought that it would be nice to take the time and tell others who this man is and what he is about. He is Whole Foods! Quality, more expensive than others, and clearly worth it.

    I hired Todd and his firm to represent me and I was sold immediately upon speaking with him. I was comforted during our initial consultation when he actually suggested that I interview other lawyers first so I could have a frame of reference for what other options are available to me. He emphasized that TRUST is critical when going through a divorce, and having a frame of reference gives clients a sense of confidence when things aren't going smoothly in a case. And that certainly happened in my case. So I followed his advice, interviewed three other attorneys, and immediately went right back to him.

    I own and manage a large company and I needed to rely on the advice given otherwise I ran the risk of getting emotionally sucked into my case, losing my livelihood and case at the same time. Todd wouldn't allow it. He challenged me to be great through the adversity, to be a better man and rise up to this challenge. He focused me. Todd isn't a counselor. He is a professional and was singularly focused on the case, the strategy of the case and anticipating what would happen. And he was spot on.

    My case was settled and it was fair, primarily because Todd lined up the pieces to perfection. I can't recommended this firm enough.

  • Total waste of money

    Hired what I thought would be a male attorney. Was assigned a female. Called and was told this was the best fit. Then a slew of work was supposedly performed for my family law case. A modification of child support to be specific. 2/3rds of the retainer was used before we even got to court. Weeks of calls and emails statingI was uncomfortable with the amount being spent. Assurances given but finally had to start over with a totally different firm. Detailed bills were given but things just didn't add up.

    Todd C. Burnham’s response: “This certainly isn't a client of ours as I don't have any cases where anyone has left and had to "start over." We don't assign cases based on gender unless there is a strategic reason for it and we handle all cases professionally and with the client always informed. Most importantly, as our 40 other reviews reflect, this isn't how we practice law. I'm always available to discuss our approach but I can't intelligently speak about a review that isn't from our firm.”
  • Outstanding representation during a less than outstanding time

    I am very thankful to have had Todd Burnham as my representation in my divorce. I am even more thankful that he was not my ex-wife’s attorney. His years of experience strategizing divorce cases provided positive results time and again throughout the process. He is extremely knowledgeable, strategic, attentive and professional. And while my divorce seemed simple on the outset, it ended up complex and lengthy. I am very satisfied with the outcome thanks to Todd’s excellence as a lawyer.

    Todd was our third lawyer we hired for a divorce and post divorce litigation. Our regret is that we had not hired him from the start. He certainly accomplished what the other two lawyers could not in this difficult case. He knows the law and was able defend our case when questions about previous decisions were made. He is forceful and able to get what is fair and just.

  • High Asset Divorce with children

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    I am an executive who has accumulated significant assets and I have a high annual income including bonuses. I hired Todd and Burnham Law to handle my divorce after changing from a previous attorney. My wife's lawyer had her way with my lawyer and I was bleeding emotionally and financially. He immediately fixed the issues that plagued my case for months which was shocking, and sad, since I paid tens of thousands of dollars to the first lawyer who seemingly did nothing. The end result was nothing less than excellence. I hired this firm for their reputation for being aggressive, but that really wasn't my experience. They were certainly assertive at times but Todd and his team weren't necessarily "pitbulls." They knew the law and the facts and together we made strategic decisions, combining the facts and the law, which resulted in a settlement that was highly desirable.

    I am beyond impressed and grateful. As a new single father I have a new lease on life, which includes equal time with my children, and I actually smile now. These lawyers know what they are doing and they do it extremely well. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

  • Just hired Todd

    During my initial consultation a couple days ago, I contacted Todd's firm. After my initial consultation call I immediately liked Todd. He listened as I explained my post divorce situation which began simple enough with an ex that has now spiraled into mess involving kids. He listened and just seemed to understand and empathize with my situation. He made me feel like for the first time in many years that someone was finally going to be in my corner truly fighting for me and that my back is covered.

  • The BEST, without question!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Heidi

    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 and Jen: Power Duo

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    What can I say about Todd Burnham?... He knows the law, Don't f***k up his case, and oh yeah, he got me EVERYTHING!

    In the first minute of meeting Todd I knew he was my attorney. He "got it". A master of strategy, I could always see the cogs turning in his head. This isn't to say I never had my doubts. Divorce is a roller-coaster, (mine lasting a year), and Todd and I certainly knocked heads in the process; but we both hung on, worked on our communication, and in the end I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

    Can I just say Jennifer Scott is amazing! She is the perfect compliment to Todd, the "glue" that held us together. Where Todd may falter (nobody's perfect), Jennifer excels. Know that if you hire Todd, you're not just getting Todd, but a team. I am so fortunate to have gotten the Todd and Jennifer duo, because c'mon, we know who did all the work ;).

    Thank you Todd! Thank you Jennifer! I don't know where I'd be without you... probably not in SA.
