“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.

What Other Lawyers Say

“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). It’s obvious to me that John’s a lawyer you can trust, and someone who will give your case the time and effort it deserves.

John and I both practice the same type of law. While my endorsement of John might result in my firm losing a case or two to him, I’m comfortable with doing so because I know for a fact that he’ll always put the client’s best interest first. And when it’s all said and done, that’s what it’s all about. Helping people! John, it’s a pleasure to know you!
