The firm was established as a partnership of Calton & Burns in 1985 and practiced personal injury continuously. The Law Offices of John P. Burns opened as a solo practice in 2010.
We focus on representing people injured through the carelessness of others.
I represented a client injured in a rear end freeway collision after being hit by a construction company truck. The client had to have eight back surgeries. Complex medical and disability issues and proof were involved. The case settled for a seven figure settlement 30 days before trial.
Our firm also represented six persons that were implanted with a defective hip replacement product. Each client had to be re-operated on, some several times, to correct the problem. Complex medical issues and damages were involved. Settled. All cases for seven figure amounts.

I empathize with people who are injured.
Patients should educate themselves on legal issues. My website is designed to assist people in doing so by providing a large amount of free legal educational information.
I am always willing to review documents prepared by clients.
I am not willing to coach people who want to represent themselves due to my concern that my malpractice insurance may not cover such actions.
