The results of the 2016 Super Lawyer awards have been announced and Attorney Neil Burns was proud, once again, to be selected. Attorney Burns claims that “While the award is a result of much hard work it is mostly inspired by deserving clients who have suffered greatly.” The distinction is especially important because there are only five (5) lawyers in all of Massachusetts who were awarded as a Super Lawyer in the category of Professional Liability: Plaintiff.
Legal Malpractice is a field that most attorneys avoid. Why? Perhaps because it is hard to file claims and lawsuits against fellow attorneys. As such, Attorney Burns’ office rejects the vast majority of prospective clients. Nevertheless, the cases that the Law Office of Neil Burns accepts are cases in which the facts and law show that the clients have been greatly wronged by their prior lawyers; sometimes by multiple lawyers. The facts and the law clearly point to professional negligence by the attorney in those few selected cases.
