Handling Complex Legal Issues so You Can Move Forward

Facing a legal issue is often a stressful and overwhelming time, especially if you've been charged with a crime. The Law Office of Roy K. Burns Jr. has been in this business long enough to know that just because you've been charged, doesn't mean you're guilty. But it's in your best interest to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you fight for the best possible outcome for your case. Our attorneys will work hard to reduce the charges and penalties you face, if not exonerate you altogether.

Whether you're faced with a DUI charge, drug crime, violent crime, or even a juvenile crime — you don't have to go it alone. We can provide the legal support you need and work to resolve issues in your favor. With experience as a former assistant D.A., our defense strategies are informed by both sides of the law, and this allows us to combat your charges more efficiently.

Our office can handle just about any and all of life's legal problems. Not only can we defend your rights and future, but we also offer estate planning, family law, real estate, and personal injury legal services as well.

As family law attorneys, we can help you effectively represent your interests in a divorce or child custody dispute. When you need help with a real estate issue, we can be your advocates to ensure you're getting the best deal. We can also help you plan for the future. As your dedicated estate planning advisors, we can help you understand the available tools such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney to protect your property, assets, and unique personal wishes for end-of-life arrangements.

If you're struggling to recover from injuries after an accident caused by the carelessness or negligent actions of another, our legal team will pursue due compensation for your injuries and emotional trauma. You shouldn't have to carry the financial burden of an accident that wasn't your fault. We'll help you hold the responsible party accountable for their actions (or inactions).
