"Our Mission is to protect, advocate, and care
for each client when they need it the most."


Dedicated to serving our clients with integrity, consistent communication, and excellent legal representation

If you have been seriously injured by a negligent driver in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident on Kentucky roads, we understand the challenges and difficulties you face. At the Law Office of Todd Burris, we focus on Lexington, KY personal injury cases and are here to help you through the issues you are dealing with. We can help you get the care and compensation you need and deserve.

The Law Office of Todd Burris is built on the principles of trust, faith, and commitment. Our mission is to help our clients achieve the best possible outcomes with effective resolutions to their legal needs. While we understand the importance of providing sound legal advice and excellent representation, we also feel it is equally important to build strong and lasting client relationships and community support. We do this by guiding our clients through their legal problems with honor, respect, and a clear focus and direction.

Dedicated to one client at a time

What does being dedicated to one client at a time mean to us? It means that we work on your case as though it were the most important case in our office, because it is. Your case may not offer the biggest potential payout among our caseload, but whatever your case is worth, it is important to you and it’s important to us.

What does being dedicated to one client at a time mean to you? It means that when you call with a question about your case, you will talk to Todd Burris himself and not a paralegal. Todd will be able to answer your question because he is the one working personally on your case, and not a paralegal. Large firms cannot promise that level of service because that’s not how they operate. It’s just how we do things at the Law Office of Todd W. Burris, because we believe that’s how our clients want to be treated.

Why a Lexington personal injury lawyer?

You might be wondering what exactly a Lexington personal injury attorney can do for you. Personal injury lawsuits or cases are legal disputes which aren’t criminal matters, but focus on getting help for a victim of a wrongdoing or negligent act. The goal of a personal injury case is to provide financial assistance and stability for a victim and their loved ones, ensuring they can recover from their injuries and get back on their feet again.

For a personal injury case to be successful in court, two questions need to be answered:

  • Were you or a loved one seriously injured and/or have suffered as a result of an accident or injury?
  • Is someone potentially legally responsible for that accident or injury but did not face criminal charges?

If you can answer “Yes” to both of these questions, you have a legal right to seek the assistance of a personal injury lawyer and potentially get the help you and your family need.

An experienced Lexington, KY injury attorney can make a difference

If you have been seriously injured in a Kentucky car or truck accident or have lost a loved one due to the negligent or wrongful conduct of another, contact Todd W. Burris, PSC, Lexington, KY personal injury lawyer, for a free consultation. We cover all of Lexington as well as the surrounding cities and communities. If you cannot travel to our office due to your injury, we can arrange to come visit you at your home, in the hospital, or wherever is most convenient for you. Call today at (859) 252-2222 or contact us online. We look forward to hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to help you with your legal needs.

I wouldn’t have known where to start dealing with everything regarding my accident. I was injured but before the MRI and more in depth procedures, we didn’t know just how severe it was, though I knew I was in pain and unable to function at capacity. In the beginning, even talking to my own auto insurance provider felt risky because I didn’t have all the answers, yet I felt like they wanted me to wrap things up. Handing it over to Todd and his office was a relief. They took care of the stressful things I didn’t know how to deal with and I was able to focus on PT, surgery recovery, and more PT. They worked through the negotiations of a settlement and I was able to focus on healing. I’m so thankful.

Todd was a consummate professional, and handled my case with skill and patience. He was pragmatic and set the proper expectations as far as the time that would be involved from the start, and there were no huge surprises along the way, which I greatly appreciated.It is good to have someone in your corner that keeps the playing field in front of you, ensures that you are never surprised, and always works to ensure that your needs are met. That is what Todd did for me.

When we panicked after a car accident, we found this attorney, Todd W. Burris, on google. The reviews were excellent, so I decided to trust them. Working with Todd, we only could focus on our treatment. Todd and Joanne responded quickly and explained in detail, when we needed to contact them. Todd put his expertise into handling the work with insurance companies. And I give five stars.

22:04 14 Oct 21
Our family is very pleased that we engaged Todd to represent us in an auto-related accident. Initially, our hope was to have only medical bills covered by the other party's insurance; however, Todd negotiated a much more fair and favorable resolution on our behalf that included compensation for the physical and psychological trauma related to the accident. Because of Todd's expertise, not only did we get medical expenses covered, but we also got better positioned financially because of the difficulty we endured as a result of the wreck. The paralegal department was extremely diligent guiding us through the process, and Todd himself was always accessible.

A year and a half ago my parents were involved in a car accident that took my mother's life and left my dad hospitalized and near death. I didn't know where to turn or what to do until a friend recommended Todd, he was truly a godsend to me and my family. Todd and his staff immediately took over the task of dealing with the insurance companies as well as their lawyers and allowed me to concentrate on the care of my dad. He is truly a credit to his profession and you couldn't ask for a better man both personally and professionally. I cannot say enough good things about Todd and his amazing team. Although I hope no one else finds themselves in the position I was I can't think of anyone better than Todd Burris to have fighting for them. Now my Dad is still on the road to recovery and thanks to Todd his recovery is the only thing that he has to be concerned with. Thanks again Todd for being such a blessing when we needed it most.

When my client's parents were involved in a major car accident in Kentucky involving a commercial truck, they asked me to locate an attorney who could help. It's not often that an attorney is available immediately to discuss the case, give insight, and agree to handle all facets of the case from start to finish. Todd did just that. From my first call to him to the most recent resolution of the matter, Todd was extremely professional, attentive to my clients, aggressive when he had to be and thorough in his case prep. I would highly recommend Todd and his staff to anyone looking for an attorney to assist them during such a difficult time. Although no amount of money can bring back a mother or a spouse, my clients are extremely thankful for the recovery Todd was able to obtain on their behalf.Donald P. McPhee, Esq. (Salem, NY)

I would highly recommend the Law Office of Todd W. Burris to anyone needing the services of a personal injury lawyer. He and his staff professionally and diligently work on your case. They were in constant contact with me and kept me informed about the progress of the case. I had never been involved in this type of action before and he and his team educated me on what was going to happen and let me know what to expect. It was a great relief to have Todd tell me to concentrate on recovering from my injuries and that they would handle “the rest”. And that is exactly what they did.
