Located in Greenbelt, Maryland, we are a full-service law firm dedicated to representing our clients during individual and corporate bankruptcies.

Maryland bankruptcy attorney John D. Burns started the firm in October 1998 with the intent of providing the best service to his clients. Mr. Burns has spent his legal career cultivating his expertise in bankruptcy law. He has been an integral member of the bankruptcy legal community, attending seminars and lending his expertise by speaking on bankruptcy topics. He has a reputation among the bankruptcy community as someone who truly understands the intricacies of bankruptcy law. He is a lawyer who never ceases to fight for his clients.

Our clients come to us in a time of need. They often feel as if they shouldn't be in the situation they are in, as if they should be ashamed that they are having legal and financial difficulties. We show our clients that a bankruptcy isn't the last stop, it's the first step to a brighter future. We are ready to show you that you can start fresh, and will be with you every step of the way.

We work with corporations that, because of the economic downturn, are finding it difficult to operate their businesses as usual. These corporations are interested in resolving their creditor issues in the most expedient way possible. While we specialize in corporate Chapter 11 bankruptcy, we also handle Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. We work with individuals who have run into financial difficulties by helping them file personal bankruptcies. For those clients who are unsure about whether or not to file for bankruptcy, we offer our expertise in representing clients in settlement and loan workouts with debtors.

As of July 2011, nearly 20% of all Chapter 11 bankruptcies in this state have The Burns Law Firm, LLC, working to find the best solution to their problems. Mr. Burns helped one of his clients get the largest discharge of debt in the state of Maryland, an amount over $12 million. He also was involved in a renowned dispute concerning diplomatic relations and its nexus to bankruptcy. Mr. Burns brings his extensive experience to bear on each client interaction. We work diligently for our clients, making sure that the full force of our firm is behind them.

We take a team approach to solving your legal and financial issues. We know that reaching out when you find yourself in a difficult situation is not easy, so we work to make it simpler for you by offering professional, dedicated client services. We want to take the burden off of you.
