Bankruptcy & Debt Relief

In this difficult economy it is necessary for some people to seek assistance in managing their debt, and in some cases to start over.

We can work with you to stop foreclosure and to consolidate debt. In most cases you can keep your home, cars, retirement accounts and other personal property. Read more »

Mediation

Mediation is a process in which people come together to work out the solution to their problem with the assistance of another person who remains neutral and whose only goal is to help the people come to an agreement that they can all live with. There is no Court or Judge to tell you what you will do, instead you can control the outcome, creating a flexible and unique solution that will be specific to your circumstances. Attorney Burnham is a trained mediator, and can assist you in working through your legal issues and in formalizing any agreements that you reach with mediation.

Fees

Fees are charged hourly or on a fixed fee basis depending on the services being provided. We will do our best to give you an estimate of the costs of your legal matter upon your request.
