Allison R. Burns is licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the United States District Court in the District of Massachusetts. Attorney Burns is an accomplished attorney at Casey Lundregan Burns, who oversees each of our areas of law. With a focus on client relationships, Attorney Burns strives to give care and attention to each and every client represented by our firm.
Attorney Burns has a track record of success in the areas of real estate, probate, and fiduciary litigation. Initially specializing in real estate conveyancing, Allison is knowledgeable in this subject and has overseen large commercial transactions as well as residential purchases and sales. Allison has now expanded her practice to include the areas of probate administration and fiduciary litigation. In probate administration, Allison combines her real estate knowledge to ensure that any real property is properly conveyed under the guidelines of the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code. She has a vast amount of experience in assisting clients when estates own real property requiring the approval of the Land Court. Allison applies her knowledge from her other areas of law to the area of fiduciary litigation. A passionate litigator, Allison works to find creative solutions to all of her cases and is determined to obtain the best outcome for all of her clients. Recently, Allison was able to resolve a fiduciary litigation case on behalf of her client and also obtained a court order for the opposing party to pay nearly all of her attorney’s fees for the entirety of a two-year-old case.
Allison graduated Cum Laude from Suffolk University Law School. In her first year of law school, Attorney Burns earned the award of Distinguished Oral Advocate in Suffolk’s Legal Practice Skills program, a rigorous practical skills class. Allison was admitted to the Suffolk University Law Review as a staff writer and then served as a Note Editor in her third year.
