Here at Local Happenings, we are all about locally owned and operated businesses. We find that it is one of the most unique parts about Scioto County. That is why this week we thought that it would be the perfect opportunity to tell you all about Burnside Law.
Burnside Law has offices in Portsmouth, Ashland, and Huntington with satellite offices in Waverly, Ironton, and Cleveland!
Burnside Law is a personal injury law firm that handles all kinds of cases. These cases include motor vehicle accidents, wrongful death, nursing home abuse, medical malpractice, and slip and fall.
So who owns this business? Local attorney, Jeremy Burnside, is the proud owner of this law firm. Burnside started in January 2010.
His goal was to provide high quality and compassionate legal care to personal injury and wrongful death clients in the tri-state area so that the injured people and their families receive a valuable peace of mind and access to our civil justice system.
Burnside Law is located at 1118 Hutchins Street.
It used to be the former Calvary Baptist Church. Hutchins street was named after Wells Hutchins. Hutchins voted for the 13th Amendment; which abolished slavery.
My favorite part about their building is their mock trial room. This room is used for attorneys to prepare cases set for trial.
Burnside Law has spread far and wide since opening in 2010. They have represented over 2,000 clients in the tri-state area.
Jeremy Burnside prides himself on making sure he gives back to his community. Burnside Law has participated in Plant Portsmouth, downtown cleanups, giving “blessing bags” to our veterans, and so much more.
One of my favorites was when they filled up gas tanks for the frontline healthcare workers during COVID.
Burnside says that they are very honored to support the many wonderful people (and initiatives) in our community.
COVID is still rampant in our community, so I talked with them about how it has affected their law firm. They told me, “Like many businesses, we had to adapt and overcome challenges the pandemic brought our way. We continue to follow strict COVID-19 protocol to keep our clients and staff safe. Our firm can operate entirely online. We are actively meeting clients virtually as well as sending and signing documents electronically. Having community support during these times of uncertainty is a true blessing. We love seeing the unity and support happening right here in our community despite the pandemic.”
