About our Phoenix, AZ: office


BurnsBarton is a woman-owned law firm, founded in 2012. We are a group of Big Law attorneys who have gone small to provide excellent client service at a lower cost. Without the bureaucracy and overhead that comes with a large firm, our lawyers can focus on what they do best: advising and defending employers efficiently, effectively, and successfully. Our firm's primary practice is employment litigation, ranging from single-plaintiff discrimination claims to nationwide wage and hour class action lawsuits. We also assist our employer-clients with their commercial litigation matters, including breach of contract and restrictive covenant lawsuits. Our clients range from Fortune 100 companies to small family-owned businesses. We have earned a high degree of trust and loyalty from our clients because of the exceptional results we achieve for them, the high level of client service we provide, and the cost-effectiveness of our representation.


We are a group of experienced litigators and employment counselors – we don't spend our clients' money training rookies. Most of our attorneys spent their entire careers with the same large national law firm before breaking off to found BurnsBarton. Our clients hire us for our expertise and experience and we give each matter our personal attention, with partners performing most of the work. Our rates are significantly lower than our big firm competitors, and we are committed to providing efficient service to our clients. We know that it is difficult for good employers to pay big firm overhead in litigation matters so we have kept our overhead low. We don't have a marketing department, we don't own a suite at the ballpark, and we don't staff cases the way large national firms do – i.e., we don't push work down to the lowest-cost (and least-experienced) associates. When you hire us, you get us, and our low overhead allows us to keep our rates affordable.


Our clients are responsible employers who follow the law and treat their employees fairly. We know that to effectively represent our clients, we need to understand their businesses inside and out. That is why we take the time (off the clock) to visit with our clients, see their operations, get to know their people, and understand what is important to their success. This helps us provide them with the best legal advice, and the most effective representation in court. As a result, we have a select group of very happy clients who tell us that we are the most effective and cost-efficient lawyers they use. Our clients range from Fortune 100 companies like United Parcel Service (for whom we are Core Counsel in the Southwest), to Arizona-based companies that operate on national and international platforms like GoDaddy, Forever Living Products, ASML US, Inc. and Fox Restaurant Concepts, to local Arizona companies like Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center and Integrated Medical Services.


We take pride in counseling our clients on day-to-day employment matters to help them avoid employment claims and disputes. However, if litigation cannot be avoided, our team of seasoned litigators has a proven track record of success in the courtroom, and we are not afraid to take cases to trial, if it is in our client's best interest. We have tried cases in federal and state court jurisdictions across the country, and as a result we understand how to advise our clients to make sound, legally defensible decisions that will present well to a jury. We have litigated virtually every type of employment claim, from routine equal employment opportunity lawsuits to complex nationwide class actions, and everything in between.
