After my car accident they helped me every step of the way! They were up front and answered any questions I had! They negotiated the insurance and got a higher settlement than was offered! I would definitely use them again!

Terri Hawkins

My husband and I had an awesome experience in dealing with Attorney Mark Williamson and the entire staff at the Burnside Law Firm. We received exceptional service and was very pleased with the outcome. Mr. Williamson and his colleagues were very helpful and assisted us from the beginning to the end. We highly recommend the Burnside Law Firm.

Damien Lanclos

I have known Thomas Burnside and his family for years as I grew up with Thomas. I have recently had the pleasure of meeting his partner, Mark Williamson. There is an aphorism that I have found to be universally true, "A company is known by its people." Thomas, Mark and their staff are great people. I have leaned on Thomas for legal advice not related to his expertise and he has referred me to others who have taken good care of my personal and business interests.

Debbie Walker

In November 2017, I was in a car accident and I decided to seek out legal assistance. I chose to go with Burnside Law Firm, LLP because of their five star rating. My inital consultation was with attorney, Mr. Garon Muller. I knew immediately that I wanted Mr. Muller to take my case. His professionalism and expertise in personal injury made my decision easy. Mr. Muller maintained his professionalism throughout my case. He kept me updated on a regular basis via telephone or email. He was always available to me when I call. I did not have to wait 24 hours to get a call back from him. I would greatly recommend Mr. Muller and the Burnside Law Firm, LLP.

Jennifer Malonjao

Burnside Law Firm LLP is one of the best law firms in Augusta. Before starting my lawsuit I checked out a few places and Burnside felt to be the best. They did not let me down. Mr. Mark Williamson was my attorney and throughout my entire case he was extremely easy to talk to and I felt like I was treated like a person, and not just a check. He worked very hard on my case and I feel as if I could not have received the settlement I did with anyone else. He made sure my husband and I knew everything that was going on throughout the entire process. I will always recommend Burnside to anyone that needs legal assistance. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming from your first step in the door on day one to your last step out the door when your case is complete. I am beyond satisfied.
