Jeff Burns has been both my personal and business attorney for more than 15 years. He is smart, hardworking, experienced, knowledgeable about the law, well connected with various “experts” when same are needed, ethical, a skilled and fair negotiator, has represented my interests as though they were his own, has always been willing to tell counsel for my adversaries, and me, when he thought either of us was mistaken or out of line, recognizes the value of an early and complete resolution of a dispute, is active in community organizations, enjoying the benefits of associations with members of such groups, and is not intimidated by those in positions of legal, government or economic authority. In all my dealings with Jeff in his professional capacity I have felt that the value of his services was at least equal to and usually greater than his billings. Having practiced law myself for more than 45 years, I can say with some experience that Jeff is truly an attorney’s attorney and certainly one of the best practitioners that I have known, worked with, or been fortunate to have as my representative and counsel.

I have been practicing law in Seattle Washington area since 1971 and, in addition to Washington, am a member of the Bars of New York and The District of Columbia . Further, I am a former Federal Law Enforcement Officer (Federal Bureau of Investigation). Jeff Burns and I became acquainted...when he began assisting me as a fellow attorney and as my attorney in a very complicated Probate case in Summit County....At the time Jeff began helping me, the case was fully involved, with multiple parties, attorneys, issues, motions, and creditor claims. He very expeditiously and accurately familiarized himself with the law and with all facets of the case, and began to take immediate, effective, constructive actions. Under pressure, his efforts have been superb." Jim M.
"Dear Jeff: I just want to drop you a note to thank you for all the work and time you put into our case. It was always reassuring to know, that if we had any problem you would be there to take care of it. You served us well and we truly appreciate it. I am also grateful it is over and that I can now try to forget the past two years and go forward from this point. Again thank you and your staff." - Carol and Richard L.
"Throughout the entire ordeal we have been most impressed with the caliber of your work and the devotion to your clients. For this you have earned our utmost respect. Thanks again for helping us out." Ed F.

"Jeff is a listener more than a talker, and his decision-making skills reflect a firm set of personal and business ethics. Jeff's standing with this firm is excellent; I write this letter of endorsement despite the fact that his departure from the firm will leave a very large hole. He is well-organized; he knows how to keep many matters moving at the same time and how to avoid losing track of anything. He has even-tempered style of a good judge, but doesn't hesitate to make tough decisions." - J.Albert Bauer
