My wife and I retained James to represent our son in some relatively complicated criminal proceedings. As a lawyer myself, I admired his focus, work ethic, and explanations about the process as well as available options. He secured results that were both timely and acceptable to our son. His paralegal, Lisa, was very cordial and always responsive to our inquiries when James was unavailable.

Great attorney! He was straightforward with me on the best actions to take in my situation. He got my charges decreased and represented my best interest in court. He also was there for me in a situation where I needed him the next day, and he made sure I was given fair treatment by the system. Thanks, Mr. Burns!

My experience with Mr. Burns was excellent. He represented me with my divorce and everything turned out the way it should have. Fair and equal. He really did a great job and although I hope I never have to, I would highly recommend him to a friend or family member in the same position in need of a divorce attorney. Thank you once again!

Mr. Burns is an outstanding attorney who goes above and beyond. He has an extensive knowledge of the legal system and practices not only in Florida but also Alabama. I hired Mr. Burns to represent me in both my Fl and Al custody/abuse cases. Having one attorney handle both cases saved us a great deal of time and expenses in legal fees.He is also a very compassionate man when it comes to dealing with children in the legal process. He went to great lengths to assure my son's rights were protected. For that, our family is sincerely grateful. It is difficult going through custody/abuse issues,but having Mr. Burns and his legal staff on our side assured there would be a resolve that was in our family's best interest.
