What Clients Say

“I received a pay out well beyond my wildest hopes!”

Attorney John Burns knew my case would not be an easy one: I had pre-existing back pain and the MRIs weren’t showing major changes in the structure of my spine. Yet my pain had increased after the collision to the point that I couldn’t work, bowl or travel. John believed in my case. He attended my doctor appointments and taught me the tools to communicate my pain to the insurance company’s attorney. We “won” the case without going to trial. I received a pay out well beyond my wildest hopes! I strongly recommend attorney John Burns to anyone injured in an accident.

“John Burns and his excellent staff got a fair settlement for the damage to my vehicle. They also helped me to get the treatment I needed…”

What an experience it has been. I was rear-ended at high speed by a truck on the freeway. My car was smashed and both my wife and I were both hurt badly. Things only got worse when my own insurance company tried to delay my claim while they “investigated” what had happened.I said enough is enough. I got out the phone book and found John Burns in the yellow pages. John Burns and his excellent staff got things moving right away. They got a fair settlement for the damage to my vehicle. They also helped me to get the treatment I needed and they got me a fair settlement for my injuries. More that, though, I consider John to be a real friend and it is my pleasure to recommended him to you. If you’ve been in an accident, you need to call John Burns.

“Mr. Burns really knows how to fight for his clients!”

The Law Offices of John P. Burns really did an excellent job for me. They fought hard and got me a great settlement for my automobile accident injuries. They always returned my calls and they took the time to answer all of my questions. Their staff is friendly and very professional. Though I live 6 hours away by car, John’s assistant Chris made it easy; always promptly following up on any faxes, email and voicemail. I hope I never get in an accident again. But if I do, it’s comforting to know an attorney that really knows how to fight for his clients! If you need help, you should call John P. Burns.

“He fought the insurance company to get all my medical bills paid and a fair settlement for me.”

I was injured in a collision on the I-5 Freeway in Orange County, California. The accident was scary. A ladder fell off the truck in front of me on the freeway. I swerved to avoid the ladder and went off the road and slammed into a tree. The insurance company tried to blame me for the accident! Attorney John Burns and his excellent staff investigated the matter thoroughly, tracked down all the witnesses and forced the insurance company to accept complete fault for the accident. John then fought the insurance company again in order to get all my medical bills paid and a fair settlement for me. Attorney John P. Burns and his staff really fought hard for me!

John is one of the top personal injury lawyers in Orange County, California. Not only does he have very impressive credentials as an experienced trial lawyer, I’m also impressed with what John did before becoming an attorney (U.S. marine and airline captain).
