Steve Burton and Courthouse

Burton learned the old fashioned way, working under the tutelage of an experienced litigation attorney and handling all types of matters inclusive of criminal, personal injury, contract, easement, bankruptcies, collections, matrimonial, family law, environmental, insurance, administrative, school, and aviation, as well as many other areas . That broad experience allowed Steve to choose specific areas of in which he desires to work on at this point in his career. For instance, Steve handles many court custody/visitation, neglect/abuse and orders of protection cases, but does not presently desire to handle any matrimonial actions. Steve is highly selective as to the matters which he agrees to handle.
