    My life was about to turn upside down when I entered Burns Group to discuss keeping my family together with Daran Burns, while understanding it may not be salvageable. I thought it wise to have someone on my side who would walk me through this difficult time should things turn for the worse. Daran was empathetic, supportive, relatable and REAL when it came to the potential next steps. Daran and his entire team guided me through a very long divorce process all the while having my best interest and that of my girls in mind! Laura Hoskins and Madeline Kite were part of the fabulous team that represented me and provided invaluable insight towards life-altering decisions that would impact me now and down the rode. They knew exactly what questions to ask, points to highlight and articulated unseen potential consequences to these choices in a manner that freed me to make those critical choices, even in an emotional state of mind. Always available, the team was never more that a phone call or email away. The office manager Shay-ree was a permanent fixture in this process who understood my financial constraints and providing the flexibility needed to feel confident moving forward. A kind and supportive conversation every time we spoke, we quickly built trust amongst one another in a time where my trust was being torn apart. The Burns Law Group from the reception staff all the way to the top with Mr. Burns has been the best investment in my future for me and my girls. They come highly recommended, particularly after hearing other peoples horror stories during this difficult life transition. Dennis Campbell - January 21, 2020
