About John Burns

About me

I am originally from New Jersey.  I graduated from college there and became a U.S. Marine Corps Officer on graduation. I was sent by the Marines to flight school and became a Marine pilot.  I flew transports and helicopters.  After leaving the Marine Corps I was hired by Trans World Airlines (TWA) as a pilot.  I became an Airline Captain for TWA and flew both domestic and international routes. I went to law school in California while still flying for TWA. I took early retirement from TWA to practice law full time.  I have been practicing law since 1981.  I met my wife while she was working for TWA as a Flight Attendant.  We have been married since 1974.  We have two grown children, a boy and a girl, who are both recently married. We live in Dana Point where I like to take long walks on the beach. I love being a personal injury attorney and taking good care of my clients. I am courteous and professional in everything I do but I insist on getting great results for my clients.  I do that by fighting hard for my clients against the  insurance companies and defense attorneys.  I would like to talk to you about your case. There is no charge to talk to me so please call me at 949-496-7000.  You can also e mail me at  My website also has numerous videos of me answering different questions about the law at  My clients have also written testimonials about me that you can see on my website.  I look forward to speaking with you and meeting you personally.  John P. Burns
