Complaint / review text:
During initial consultation in late June 2007, Jeffrey L. Burnham quoted his fee at $2,500 or $125 per hour and said it would take $10,000 to take the single-count class C felony case to trial. Although Jeff's fee was same as that quoted by other attorneys, I went along with Jeff because he said "I play golf with judge" (I like to hear from you if Jeff told you this too) and others didn't. On 06-28-2007, Jeff revisited me at jail with a Notary Public to have me sign a Power of Attorney agreement to allow him to write and cash a check on my bank account because I had no one on the outside who could pay Jeff's fee or post bail. I don't know how Jeff does his book keeping, but there was never any written contract from Jeff in the beginning or an invoice at the end. This way he could later melt it all down to he said, she said, and while that may be the case, anyone is welcomed to get on the phone and get a few in Missouri.
