When the perfect lawyer was needed by a grieving, lost soul, Jason W. Burnett stepped up and went above and beyond.
As someone who has never needed a lawyer before, I was lost. I had never been involved with a lawsuit before, and as my first foray into the legal world I was completely unprepared. After the death of my partner/husband of 21 years due to cancer, I had discovered he had failed his fiduciary duty as the Trustee of his deceased parents Trust. My husband had left me the sole beneficiary of his estate, leaving me to restore his parents trust to it's original state and clean up, as it were, his failures as Trustee. At the same time my husbands adult children from his second marriage had been trying to remove me from my husbands will, to try and steal from the Grandparents trust of which they had been disinherited from. At a time when I was deeply grieving and suffering emotionally, I was referred to Reed, Malnati, Longyear and Ahrens PLLC. I met with them and Jason Burnett was assigned to my case. If there is such a thing as angels, Jason is one of them. At a time when I was so distraught, fearful and broken, it was Jason who helped me navigate the legal world and led me through the most difficult time of my adult life, not only legally speaking, but as an ear when I needed one. His compassion, strength, legal expertise, articulate and well thought out petitions on my behalf were more than I could have ever hoped for. I was and am still eternally grateful that Jason Burnett was my representative. He helped me return my late in-laws trust to it's original form, which honored their wishes and stopped the slanderous lawsuit to try and stop me by my late husbands adult children. The legal process moves slowly, but Jason was there every step of the way. He not only fulfilled my need for legal representation, he was a trusted friend when I was at my worst emotional distress. If ever there was an attorney that one could depend on to be knowledgable, kind, respectful, compassionate and honest, it's Jason W. Burnett.
