About The Burns Law Firm P.C.

I started the firm in 2005 under “Burns & Wincek” and continue the work of getting thousands of Lake County clients debt free quickly. I used to work for the “big firms” and know how impersonal and expensive those firms can be. Clients can get big results from our personal attention to each client. Everyone works with me, not an overworked inexperienced attorney who may make a mistake that can cost a client his home, car, or possessions.

We will fight to protect
your legal rights under the law.

The Burns Law Firm P.C. is dedicated to helping our clients find solutions to the financial obligations they have trouble meeting. We help our clients restructure debt, modify mortgages, adjust student loan payments, and defend against foreclosures. Read more about our services and contact us to discuss your case.
