Very Affordable

I want to tell everybody from the bottom of my heart this is the best attorney I have ever met. I had not seen my daughter in over two years when I walked into her office. Now I get to see my daughter every week. She was very affordable and I would of given my life at this point to see my daughter. Mrs Summersgill Burns followed up with me on my case multiple times every week. She made sure I got all the counselors and appointments I needed. She is very professional and puts her heart in her work! and I would recommend her for anyone and everyone!!! She was truly a gift from God for me.

Went Above and Beyond

When my estranged wife filed false charges against me, filed for divorce, and for custody of our two young children at the same time, I was blindsided. I thought all was lost, I had been thrown in jail for no reason had almost no money saved for an attorney and lost hope that I would ever see my children again. I picked myself up, sold just about everything I owned and vowed to fight until the end. Not many attorneys would speak to me knowing how limited my funds were…, then I found Margaret through a reference from a co-worker. At our first meeting she was very understanding but she never sugar coated anything. She warned me that I was going to be fighting an up hill battle, but she believed in me. She promised me that she would do everything she could do the help. She kept her promise, she fought hard and went above and beyond what I ever expected in this nasty 2 year long custody battle. In the end, she had not only helped me clear my name of the false accusations from a bitter and spiteful, drug fueled ex wife, she had helped me gain SOLE custody of my two young children. She never stopped believing in me. I do not know where I would be if I had never met Margaret through a chance recommendation. My children and I can not thank her enough. My entire life has been changed for the better due to the grace and intelligence of this person! She is very good at her job and I will always recommend her in the future!! Thank you so much for everything you have done Margaret!!

Easy to talk to

I am so grateful I took the advice of a friend and hired Margret for my car accident after the insurance company was giving me the run around. She got me the best medical treatment and a lot of money!! She was easy to talk to and made a VERY miserable confusing process a whole lot easier.

Working with Margaret Burns was an easy and seamless process

Working with Margaret Burns was an easy and seamless process. She returned my initial call quickly. Did a thorough conversation on my car accident and how she could assist. She was timely with the appointments her office set up for me and I could always rely on her for feedback on my case. I rarely had to reach out to her because she was always following up with me. When it came to settling my case she gave me a professional overview of what the offer was and what my options were. When we settled the case she was great about getting my settlement to me as well as a meeting reviewing her fees and other fees in the case. Overall I would recommend Margaret Burns
