Prior to hiring an attorney, we met with three different law firms including The Burns Law Firm, LLC. We selected John Burns based on the initial consultation because he is very smart and knowledgeable regarding bankruptcy law and provided us with several options. After choosing a course of action, the case progressed to a point where it required a tactical change and John was very astute and advised us on the various advantages and disadvantages to the various options. John patiently addressed our concerns as the obstacles arose and the final resolution was extremely favorable in our behalf. We are very grateful for John and his staff for all they did on our part and know they were the right choice and fit for us.


To The Entire Burns Law Firm Staff,

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Shirley and I feel like the world has finally been lifted from our shoulders and we can begin to live again. I used to say constantly to Shirley that I just wanted my life back and with all your help that goal has finally been achieved. We felt like we had basically put our lives in your hands and you delivered.

Shirley and I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the job that you all have done on our behalf. We know we were not the greatest clients in the world as far as having our materials and having them in an orderly fashion but you continued to show patience and diligence. We were always impressed by the professionalism displayed by the Burns Law Firm staff. We will always say your praises and recommend you to anyone who may need such help as we did.

To Whom It May Concern,

I recently hired Burns Law Firm to assist me with filing for bankruptcy for one of my businesses. I had interviewed several bankruptcy lawyers before meeting with John Burns and his team. I found that the Burns Law Firm team clearly outlined the process to me and they made it as painless as possible. As a small business owner I appreciated their efficiency in everything from pre arranging phone calls with John to having a systemized approach to take me through the actual procedures. I would very highly recommend John Burns and his team to anyone in need of a good lawyer who has a concern for a respectful outcome. Bankruptcy can be a difficult time and Burns Law Firm certainly helped to make it as efficient, cost effective and painless as possible.

Best regards

Dear Mr. Burns, Ms. Chrisman, Ms. Jones, and Ms. Deja,

I am so very grateful for ALL you did to get my case resolved. What a great group of people to work with. I am so overwhelmed that this is now behind me. I couldn’t have selected a better group of people. Of course, you know, the first person I asked as to a GOOD Bankruptcy Firm was Kelly and she highly recommended your FIRM.

Thank you from the bottom of my “heart”!!

Best Regards,

He did a very good job me. I am pleased with what Mr. Burns did because I was going back and forth trying to modify my mortgage but everyone lied to me about it and only Mr. Burns was able to do it.


I was in Mr. John Burns' office in May, 2014 with this law suit on me filed by one of the creditors. He took very professional approach in this case. He gave me advise to file Chapter 7 which I did, but since it was complicated case Mr. Burns took it to the highest level & took me out of this mess.

One time I was so depressed with all this I talked to Mr. Burns and I still remember his words "You will see the sunlight soon".

Today, I can see that sunlight which is only possible due to Mr. Burns. He is very energetic & aggressive in these cases.

I will highly recommend (100 out of 100).


– Former Client / SS

From the moment I paid the $250 consultation fee to discuss my case with Mr. Burns, I knew I was in good hands. I retained his services after my Chapter 13 bankruptcy was dismissed for a shortage amount of $2464. Keep in mind that I paid over $38k into my five-year plan and was devastated my case was dismissed. I was also shocked and disappointed that my former attorney did not believe he could successfully help me get the case reopened and/or discharged.

Not only was Mr. Burns able to get the judge to reconsider opening my case, he successfully helped me get my case discharged. Although they practice a no-nonsense approach, you can rest assured that Mr. Burns is the real deal and he has the expertise to back it up. I highly recommend Mr. Burns and his team to anyone who is looking for a skilled bankruptcy attorney who means business. I would like to thank Mr. Burns and his staff for helping me get a successful outcome for my case so I can finally move on with my life.
