Personal Injury Corporate Litigation Litigation
Mark Smith (and Para Jean Pumplin) provided attentive, responsive, thorough counsel and follow through from day one. Mark Smith was exceptionally well-prepared for court, and he prepared me very well for the hearing. I was 100% satisfied with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend this dynamic team.
In response to Burnham Law: apparently it is not, because I was just able to finalize my divorce without it, with the professional help of a different law firm that didn’t push me into the use of a business evaluator. Also, let’s be 100% transparent and honest here. You had 3 months to tell me about a ‘knowing waiver’. Instead, your lawyers told me EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE all that time, i.e. that no specialists would be needed in case of an amicable settlement. Happy to share those emails to show other people about your very shady handling of my case. Only when you learned we were headed for a settlement outside of court and in the advanced stages of reaching a full agreement (i.e. no more money for you) did you mention a business evaluator was ‘indispensable’. You were clearly trying to push for more conflict = more money. Extremely bad practice that sadly falls within the sad cliche of US law firms being all about money, not about people. Original post: Hired this firm for my divorce. Clearly communicated that I wanted an amicable settlement outside of court, even if this meant foregoing my husband’s business assets. This approach was confirmed and reiterated many times with my appointed lawyer Brian Lewis. Brian left the firm from one day to the next, I was appointed Mark Smith. At this time my husband and I had taken our own initiative to meet with a (non court ordered) mediator, with whom we made significant progress towards a resolution / settlement. In the midst of these negotiations Mark Smith started pushing for a business evaluator to evaluate my husband’s businesses even though I had made it very clear I did not want to pursue that. When I refused, they withdrew from my case. I had spent $18,000.00 to date with Burnham Law and had to start all over again with someone else. Clearly, Burnham Law was actively trying to push my case to court to get more money out of me.
Didn’t end up needing their services after all, but their intake group and lawyer assigned were super nice and understanding about my situation. Will probably go back if I need legal help in the future.
