Minneapolis Litigation and Legal Counsel

As an experienced attorney with a focused litigation practice, Dave Burns knows that litigation begins — and often ends — with preparation. A seasoned investigator, strategist and listener, Dave is committed to putting his clients in the best position to meet their legal needs. While preparing evidence meticulously for trial, he also pursues negotiation and settlement when avoiding trial is in his client's best interests.

In addition to his central probate and bankruptcy litigation practice, Dave often accepts other matters from existing clients or referring attorneys who have come to trust his counsel; he takes pride in the fact that he often represents a client in a litigation matter and then remains as counsel on an as-needed basis for ongoing business or personal needs. Dave's committed work mediating family disputes and his background in business management consulting allow him to offer litigation and transactional services in business law, family law / divorce, drafting wills and powers of attorney, and estate administration.

In all matters, he is committed to the professional representation and personal attention each client deserves.
