"Securing a good lawyer will be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. This was a major mistake I made with my pending divorce: I did not choose Daran Burns first. I went with a lawyer who had a great radio ad and web page. This soon not only affected my pocketbook, but also my life. Too many horrible details to share, but if I could have gone back I would have selected a team that puts its clients first. A team that has effective and caring paralegal support, solid and balanced legal advice and a feeling of family. I fired my first lawyer and soon joined the legal team of Burns & Speights. I'm glad I did. My dad used to tell me don't be 'too late smart.' I should have listened and picked Daran Burns the first time!"


"I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the Burns Law Group, PC. My family was blessed to have Daran Burns as our counsel during a very difficult time in our lives. Everyone at the firm took the time to listen with compassion and understanding. They explained the legal process in a manner in which we could fully understand the steps that would be taken and not be surprised by the outcome. Daran fought as if we were his own family. The support of his legal staff was above and beyond my expectations. Missi was my shoulder to cry on, a confidant, and a teacher. Due to the dedication and hard work of this firm, the truth was seen and my family received an outcome in our favor. I will be forever grateful to have Burns & Speights."

"Being a dad fighting for custody, Mr. Burns and his staff did an excellent job with my case. Always professional, knowledgeable and with reasonable rates, Mr. Burns always had my best interest in mind. I would definitely recommend Mr. Burns to anyone who has something worth fighting for."

"Daran Burns is as good as it gets in terms of effective and experienced counsel, especially on matters requiring local expertise and understanding of the dynamics of the local court's personalities and processes. Daran and his staff truly made a difference in my life, not just because he did a great job presenting my case to the court, but because he genuinely cared about me and my family. I will always remain grateful for his expert advice, and highly recommend Daran Burns to anyone who needs help navigating the cold, dark waters of the legal system."

"I hired Daran Burns of Burns Law Group, PC to represent me in a domestic case in Cherokee County involving the custody of my infant son. As a young and new mother, I was not familiar with the court system or my rights as a parent. When the judge unexpectedly took custody of my child away from me, I was devastated. Mr. Burns and his paralegal, Terri Mallicoat, never gave up. They fought hard and encouraged me to never give up. Thanks to their persistence, high quality of legal services and experience, my family is now reunited, as I was awarded primary custody of my toddler. Mr. Burns and his entire staff made this happen, and I am forever grateful for their patience, guidance, support and legal representation. I highly recommend Burns & Speights to everyone."

"Daran Burns and his staff handled my highly contested divorce and child custody case with compassion and ease. Daran gave me confidence and comfort during a very difficult time in my life. I could not have asked for a more caring and compassionate lawyer! He stood up for my rights and always listened to what I had to say! Best lawyer ever!"

"I met Mr. Burns in October of 2014 when a series of unfortunate events landed my husband and myself in need of a lawyer. It was a weekend and we were trying desperately to find someone to help us. I reached out to another attorney who gave Mr. Burns my name and number. I believe that it was divine intervention that he found us. We have struggled for over a year with a difficult custody battle. My husband's children were kept from him by his ex-wife for no reason for over nine months. There were lies and false allegations, and this ended up with us in court in three separate counties. Neither of us had ever experienced something so traumatizing and heartbreaking, not seeing or talking to your children for almost a year.

Through it all Mr. Burns and Missi Ellerbee, his paralegal, were there for us and provided us with support and extraordinary legal counsel. Because of them, we were able to keep our heads up and continue to fight for our girls. After months and months of diligence and hard work, Daran and his team got our girls back. It has been and continues to be an uphill emotional battle, but with their never ending hard work and support, we have continued to prevail.

Myself being raised by an attorney and paralegal as parents, I know what it takes to be successful and Daran Burns has it. He is brilliant, steadfast, and very astute in his work. I don't know where we would be today without Daran and Missi."
