BRITT BURNER ESQ

I highly recommend Britt Burner to people who need advice for elder care issues such as navigating through the Medicaid labyrinth . She is not only highly skilled in her field but also is an attentive person who treats her clients with respect and kindness. In two instances she visited her clients in their assisted living facilities so that she could address problems that had a deadline. She makes sure that a case she handles is met with a solution. Britt is truly an honorable lawyer.
