“They assured my family and me that things would turn out A.O.K.”

This case was a tragic accident in which three people died as a result of an airplane crash. The airplane was owned by us and the insurance company did not want to pay because “I was not killed in the crash.” It was statements like these that really infuriated me and these fine attorneys.

Not only did they work diligently to solve the “monetary” problems, but also to assured my family and me that things would turn out A.O.K., and that it was not our fault. The personal and professional attention that these attorneys gave us could not be reflected in the fees charged, so here I return the favor of their concerns for our well-being though this case, by highly referring them to anyone with a problem, especially with insurance companies.

“Mr. Burns also got me an MRI and took care of other medical services without me having to pay until my case settled.”

I was riding my bicycle on the sidewalk when I was hit by a car coming out of a parking lot. I injured my left hip and knee in the accident. My doctor sent me to physical therapy but that made my pain worse so I had to stop physical therapy. I also had pain at work and could not sit for long periods of time. I found attorney John P. Burns on the internet. Mr. Burns and his staff were very kind and helpful to me. Mr. Burn’s office got an orthopedic surgeon to take care of me with no out of pocket payments by me. Mr. Burns also got me an MRI and took care of other medical services without me having to pay until my case settled. I was very happy with the Law Offices of John P. Burns and the great way I was treated there. I fully recommend that anyone who has a personal injury case should talk to John Burns. Mr. Burns and his staff took real good care of me and my case.

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!
