About me

I am a former Marine so I know how to get in the trenches and stay in a fox hole. I've equipped myself with a 2nd law degree in tax and help individuals and businesses reduce their liabilities and increase their cash flow.

We love to help you out in planning your estate, educate you so that you know how to prepare for when you become an angel.

I have written several books on wealth, asset protection and real estate investing and can assist you in planning for retirement and risk management.

  • Michael Paul Ehline

    I endorse this lawyer's work. James Burns is an enigma in legal circles. He fights like a U.S. Marine because he is an honorably discharged Marine. Duty, Honor, Country, Clients.
