Burges' genuine approach, excellent reputation and experience seemed to be the best fit. We couldn't have made a better choice.
My brother had an altercation with a police officer who pulled him over for "driving too slow." As a family we researched a number of Phoenix criminal defense attorneys, and Burges' genuine approach, and excellent reputation and experience seemed to be the best fit. We couldn't have made a better choice. Burges was highly knowledgeable of all the options available, the different court proceedings, and generally about the law. He was always on time, and advocated tirelessly for our case--in our case he was able to reduce the charge to a minor offense. His prior experience as a state prosecutor was extraordinarily helpful. Burges is an excellent lawyer and I highly recommend him.
A truly honest, knowledgeable professional attorney, you can't go wrong!
My case was complicated. I was looking at 10 years prison time. With the father of my kids gone by suicide and my reckless ways in the past, my children would be left with their grandma. This was not possible nor anything my mother could take. I prayed to god the hardest in my life to help me. Not long after a postcard type of advertisement came in the male talking about Burges McCowan defense attorney. After a few days I looked up his website. I listened to his recorded story. I knew at that moment he was for me. I called him and rattled off my story to him. He calmed me down right off the get go. He told me not to worry and to come in. I had two crimes I had done in 2011. I plead guilty and completed probation, which was for 2 years. I was arrested and picked up in front of my employer in February of 2012. A crime I had committed at the same time as the other two, but this one took over a year to be charged on my. The state wanted to call the charges in 2011 priors and give me the 10 years. I explained to Mr Burgess my concerns of them not being priors. From day one, he was Honest, about what he could do. His knowledge about the law and his energy to take my case was almost a dream to me. This man knows what he is doing! He has worked for the city prosecutor side first , then chose to move over as a defense attorney. My rating for him as a attorney on a scale from 1-10 is a 20!! And the same as a human being. He is a very soft spoken easy going man and knows his job! HIRE HIM HIRE HIM HIRE HIM. In my case I ended up with IPS probation, and probation after the IPS of 6 months of 3years. No jail time!! Now I can go on and raise my girls and protect them. I could go on and on about Mr McCowan. A TRULY HONEST, KNOWLEDGEABLE PROFESSIONAL ATTORNEY, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!
Trust in Burges because he will fight for you.
The summer of 2012 was the worst year of my life. I dug myself into a hole I could not dig myself out of without the help of a VERY hardworking, trustworthy, and dedicated attorney. Mr. McCowan was not only there to offer great defense, but did so with such consideration and was a sincere friend I will forever be indebted to. He protected me from news crews by shielding me or rescheduling court dates, and offered hugs when I needed it the most. I turned myself in providing evidence and a full confession and gave him nothing to work with, yet he never gave up and I received a great outcome that was virtually unheard of. Trust in Burges because he will fight for you.
I highly recommend Burges if you are looking for someone that has your best interest in mind.
I needed an attorney when my daughter was facing jail for organized retail theft. Burges kept me informed and helped set my mind at ease with his knowledge and experience. I always knew what to expect at court and he would talk with my daughter and treated her like an adult - not a criminal - and always showed compassion and respect. I didn't retain Burges to get my daughter off but I wanted someone that would do whatever they could to get the best possible outcome. He did just that going the extra mile whenever possible. I highly recommend Burges if you are looking for someone that has your best interest in mind. Hopefully I won't need his services again, but if I do, he will be the first call I make!
I only wish we had contacted Burges right away instead of as late as we did.
I am extremely grateful for all your help and all the work you did with my case. I have no doubt that if we didn't hire you when we did, the outcome would have been much different. I don't recall if we told you or not but it was your brochure that I received in the mail that alerted me to look online to see if I had a case. I did, and the court date was only two days later. I did not receive a summons until a week after the court date and had it not been for your brochure I would've missed that date and subsequently been issued a bench warrant. So not only did you help at the end of my case, you helped at the very beginning. I only wish we had contacted you right away instead of as late as we did. I just want to thank you again for even taking my case on such short notice when basically nothing had been done.
The professionalism of Mr. Burges McCowan is what gives people like me confidence in the justice system.
Five Stars! The professionalism of Mr. Burges McCowan is what gives people like me confidence in the justice system. I highly recommend the services of Burges. If ever I have a legal situation (again) this lawyer is who I will be contacting. I have nothing but the highest praise and respect for how he handled my case. Never once did I feel like he wasn't there for me personally and professionally. Even helping where he need not have. With that as a current client and former client the rating given here is well earned.
Burges fights hard for his client and I will be forever grateful to him for all his hard work for my son.
I had the good fortune of having Burges McCowan for my son's first DUI in 2010 and then his second DUI in 2013. In both cases Burges did an outstanding job for my son. The outcome in both cases was excellent, but especially the second DUI. The outcome was unbelievable. He was able to help my son do his jail time in WI where my son is a resident and where his little daughter lives. This is a very difficult outcome to set up and carry out. The most important part for me has been how Burges has kept me informed. He was quick to respond to all my questions with excellent communication and professionalism. He is always respectful, compassionate and nonjudgmental. He is very knowledgable and really seems to care about his client. My son felt comfortable and supported throughout a very difficult process. I HIGHLY recommend him. He fights hard for his client and I will be forever grateful to him for all his hard work for my son.
Mr. McCowan is a wonderful attorney and very well versed in the law. He kept me informed every step along the way and put everything in layman terms so I could understand. He was respectful to myself and my family. He also kept the family updated on what was occurring. I would use Mr. McCowan again and I would also refer people to him. Thank you Mr. McCowan for your compassion and knowledge in the law and court systems.
Great Lawyer, extremely responsive.
Hiring Mr. McCowan was one of the best choices I have ever made. Not only did he provide excellent legal representation, he put my mind at ease through the entire process - keeping me informed every step of the way. Due to the lengthy nature of our legal process, I found this to be invaluable. Secondarily, Mr. McCowan was able to get me the results that I wanted!
I rate Mr. McCowan 5 stars.
We thought we were going to need Mr. McCowan for a relative of ours. Thankfully all the charges were dropped, at the Status Hearing.
I rate Mr. McCowan 5 stars; because with all the bad press and jokes about Lawyers, he took the time to listen to me, allowed me the time to explain my concerns with the case, and was willing to work with us, on his fee. In short, he acted human and humane. I fully recommend Mr. McCowan to anyone who needs his services.
