What Our Clients Say

I've had the greatest experience with the Burns Smith Law Group, especially Zach Smith, attorney at law.

He rushed in when I was in dire need of help and negotiated with other parties for a great and unexpected outcome. If you're looking for a representative, I would highly recommend this firm.
Burns Smith Law Group handled my sons' case exceptionally well. Unfortunately, I went through two other lawyers before hiring them. Daran and Lorinda were quite attentive, responsive, available, punctual, professional, and helpful. They have excessive experience and they won't let you be bullied or intimidated by the opposing counsel. Hopefully, I won't need a lawyer again, but if I do, I know who I'm calling!
The Burns Smith Law Group was a pleasure to work with and I cannot say enough good things about them. Divorce is never easy but Daran Burns handled this process for me quickly and professionally. He and his staff were very prompt in responding to my questions, emails and calls. They made an otherwise stressful situation much easier to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any of your family legal needs.
