Personal and Business Bankruptcy: Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 13

Our Strengths

At Burns Law Firm, LLC, we will fight the system to get our clients the best solution to their current financial services.

Mr. Burns works hard on behalf of his clients. He loves to litigate thorny legal issues, and brings all the knowledge and experience he has to bear on each case. You will work with everyone in our firm, because you are not just hiring John D. Burns, you are hiring The Burns Law Firm.

Mr. Burns clerked for Honorable E. Stephen Derby, a United States Bankruptcy Judge for the District of Maryland. This experience gave him a depth of knowledge in his field. By working in the bankruptcy court, Mr. Burns was able to see a bankruptcy case from all sides and from a viewpoint not often gained by most attorneys working in this area of law.

No one else works on the type of corporate bankruptcies we do. We do not take a cookie cutter approach to our cases or our clients. We know that each corporation and each individual is unique, and the circumstances surrounding each case are distinctive. We tailor our approach to each client; you will not receive this type of representation anywhere else.

Because our approach differs depending on the client, so, too, does our fee. Rather than charge a client who comes to us with a simple case the same as one who comes to use with a complex bankruptcy, we reasonably set our rate to address the underlying issue. There is no reason a client with a simple legal and financial issue should pay the same price as a corporation with a complex bankruptcy.

There are two bankruptcy courts in Maryland; one is in Baltimore [the Northern Division], and the other is located in Greenbelt [the Southern Division], where The Burns Law Firm, LLC, has been part of the legal community since 1998. This means that Mr. Burns is very familiar not only with the legal issues of filing for bankruptcy, but is also well known in the court and in the city as someone who is very knowledgeable about bankruptcy. While Mr. Burns represents clients in both the Baltimore and Greenbelt courts, our firm tends to handle more of the Greenbelt cases. Mr. Burns' familiarity with the court and its staff lends a certain level of reassurance to his clients; a stressful situation is easier to deal with when you have someone showing you the ropes.

At The Burns Law Firm, LLC, we want our clients to know that they are our first priority. We will dedicate ourselves to your case, giving you a fresh start and relieving the crushing burden that has been holding you back. Contact us today for a consultation. We are available when you need us.
