Family Law

Being a family practice, Burney & Burney understands the importance of relationships and how relationships affect our lives. Unfortunately, not all relationships are easy and, as such, many become intertwined with the legal system for which you will need the assistance of a qualified, experienced and compassionate lawyer. Over the years of practicing family law, we have heard countless individuals say that they cannot afford an attorney when the reality is that you cannot afford NOT to have an attorney. The Burney family is ready, willing and able to help you.

During difficult times, whether it be a troubled marriage which might result in divorce, a situation following a divorce wherein a court order needs to be modified or enforced, an issue of domestic violence or perhaps a difficulty involving the custody, visitation or the support of a child, our family of experienced attorneys can guide you through these troubled waters and can put the legal system to work for you. With combined courtroom experience in excess of 85 years in the various courts of North Alabama and knowing that it is your life in which you are entrusting to our representation, we will strive to zealously, effectively and passionately prosecute your case and defend your position.

Every Case is Different and Requires a Custom Made Representation

Just as each person is unique, so is your situation and circumstance. No two cases are alike and each requires a custom designed representation. At our firm, you will develop a relationship with one of the Burneys as well as their staff. Foundational to effective representation in every case is that you have a relationship of trust and confidence with your lawyer. Burney & Burney takes this relationship very seriously and, in fact, treats it as sacred as we understand that you are entrusting your life into our hands.

As with all difficult situations, we want to get through them as quickly as possible. Not only are these situations tough mentally, emotionally and financially, but these situations put your life on hold. With this in mind, our goal is always to reach a favorable resolution to your situation as quickly as possible. We will always explore the possibilities of settlement and, if such can be done to your advantage, settlement is the desired outcome as it will allow your life to move forward with the least amount of expense and time. However, if we are unable to reach a favorable settlement, Burney & Burney is ready, willing and capable to fight for you in Court. Although no lawyer can guarantee results, we can guarantee that we will put our skill, experience, compassion and aggressive passion to work for you and your family.
