About Us

Personal Service. Experience. Results.

FERRELLE BURNS is a highly respected litigation and trial firm which handles complex civil matters and trials throughout Florida and Georgia. With over 140 years of collective experience, our attorneys are capable of litigating sophisticated, high-dollar matters in forums nationwide. Our size and deep ties to the South Georgia and North Florida communities, however, provide us a unique insight into the local legal culture and enable us to provide each client and each matter with genuine personal attention.

Our attorneys have substantial litigation and trial experience in matters involving serious personal injury and wrongful death, maritime law, professional and medical malpractice, product liability, business torts, and cases arising out of significant automobile, trucking, and boating accidents. Moreover, with offices in two cities with major U.S. ports, Ferrelle Burns has particular experience in the niche field of admiralty, maritime, and transportation law, including on an international scale.

Because of our experience and performance, we have consistently earned recognition from our peers at the highest level, as well as from numerous national organizations. We are in the unique position of having had extensive local trial experience over the past five decades, which has earned our attorneys numerous peer-based recognitions, including, among others, Martindale Hubbell’s highest AV Rating possible for skill and ethics, and inclusion in Super Lawyers, Florida Trend’s Legal Elite, the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers for Personal Injury, and the prestigious Forbes Legal Black Book. Our attorneys have also been selected to multiple, invitation-only national trial lawyer organizations which recognize excellence in advocacy, including the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 for the State of Georgia, the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and Florida‘s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators forum.

More importantly, however, we realize that client representation involves much more than a legal dispute. For that reason, we treat every client first and foremost as a person who needs courteous personal service. From the first time a client calls or walks through the door until the final resolution of a matter, our Firm and staff will make a personal connection with each client and guide the client in a sensitive manner while providing peace of mind and personal attention throughout all aspects of the litigation process. Although our attorneys have achieved millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements over the past 50 years, our goal is to give each client the special attention his or her case deserves and requires, no matter how large or small the case may be.

Outside of the practice of law, the Firm’s attorneys are actively involved in the Jacksonville and Brunswick communities and are long-standing members of, or have held leadership positions in, numerous civic and professional organizations, including the Federal Bar Association, the Florida, Georgia and Jacksonville Bar Associations, the Florida, Georgia and American Associations of Justice, Southeastern Admiralty Law Institute, Maritime Law Association, Brunswick Propeller Club, International Seafarer’s Center, Dreams Come True of North Florida, and the Jacksonville Urban League, to name a few. Our lawyers have served as professors and guest lecturers at law schools in both Florida and Georgia, and have been featured speakers in legal symposiums and trade organizations.

We sincerely pride ourselves on our reputation as professional, dedicated and ethical attorneys who understand the values, integrity and character that the legal profession and our clients require.

If our Firm can be of assistance to you in evaluating a legal matter on your behalf, please do not hesitate to contact us at either of our Florida or Georgia locations.
