Adam Burrows said he spent so much time at his father’s law firm while growing up that he understood court before he even went to law school.

“I was behind the scenes with him at the law office for years,” Burrows said of his father, Dale.

The two now practice law together at the family’s firm located in Highland Village. Burrows took over ownership in 2015. Burrows Law Group specializes in family law, estate planning, probate and small business formation. In addition to the father and son, the firm has two associates. Adam Hahn primarily handles estate planning, and Daniel Dower handles family law. Burrows’ wife, Jennifer, works with families and serves as the firm’s in-house counselor in addition to managing the office.

Burrows earned his law degree from the University of North Texas and joined the family firm after graduation. He said he has been practicing law for eight years and handles family law cases such as child custody and divorce.

“I love going to court. I love being in front of judges,” he said. “And not everybody’s cut out for that, but I want to present people’s cases. I want to be a part of that argument.”

Burrows said he has a passion for law but added that family law can be as emotionally taxing for the attorney as it is for the clients.

“I don’t think that anybody is truly 100% prepared to deal with the emotion of dealing with clients,” he said. “A lot of people who come to me have broken the foundation of their marriage. I have to help them to understand that that emotional behavior is going to hurt them because if you let the emotions run the show, all it’s going to do is create chaos.”After helping and defending his clients through the complicated legal process, Adam recommends one thing: to be nice.

“At the end of the day when all the dust settles, you’re left with the relationship that you created or the relationship that you destroyed,” Burrows said.

The consultation process:

Step 1: The client books an appointment with Burrows Law Group.

Step 2: Adam Burrows meets with client for Q&A on specific needs. Clients may sometimes be referred to one of the other two attorneys in the firm. One works in the family law division. The other handles estate planning cases.

Step 3: After the Q&A, which remains confidential between the client and attorney, the client decides whether to sign a contract to be represented by the firm.
