Thoughtful Yet Forceful Representation

Founding attorney Patrick Burns — who was named a Super Lawyer in 2023 — built an established practice in real estate law and family law. The general litigation practice was strengthened when he joined forces in 2009 with proven litigator Erik Hansen, who has been nominated as a Super Lawyer every year since 2016.

As a team, each attorney at Burns & Hansen, P.A. — many of whom have also been nominated as Super Lawyers or “Rising Stars” — provides a comprehensive menu of legal services. Our full-service practice covers every facet of business law and litigation, every aspect of real estate, and addresses legal issues in the personal lives of our clientele, including debt relief, foreclosure, divorce, estate planning and civil lawsuits. We also have a robust practice in both civil and civil appeals.
