At Potter Burnett Law, our philosophy is simple – People over power! We pride ourselves on representing the people of our community against big business insurance companies who are only out to make a profit for their CEOs and shareholders at the expense of injured victims. Potter Burnett Law is a leader in the field of personal injury and is dedicated to protecting victims.

Our pride of attorneys has over 40 years of experience handling complex personal injury cases for people from all walks of life. Big insurance companies know that we have a proven track record of success and that we are not afraid to take a case to trial in order to achieve the best and fairest result possible.

Potter Burnett Law was formed by Deborah L. Potter, Suzanne V. Burnett, and Andrew T. Burnett.  Our boutique personal injury law firm is located in Bowie, Maryland (Prince George’s County) with a second location in Baltimore, Maryland. The firm was purposely designed to be intimate so that each client would know the attorney involved in their case. Each and every client feels the attention and compassion that we demonstrate as being a part of our pride.

Attorney Suzanne Burnett and the entire Potter Burnett team are top notch caring professionals. It starts with the greeting from the receptionist to the excellent legal assistants and then the attorneys who clearly explain next steps and fully answer questions. If you really want to see results then I recommend this law firm.
