Cleveland, OH – January 18, 2022 – We are happy to announce that trial attorney John Burnett has joined the law offices of Paulozzi LPA – Injury Lawyers, where he will handle significant injury, malpractice and death cases through trial. John is a highly successful personal injury veteran with more than three decades of obtaining multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements for clients. “We are pleased to add such a seasoned, well-respected trial lawyer to our team,” said Attorney Joseph Paulozzi, President/Founder. “John brings a wealth of experience to the table, and we feel his trial skills will only compliment and add to the strength of our litigation team.”
Attorney Burnett obtained his juris doctorate degree from Case Western Reserve School of Law in 1987 after graduating from Knox College, B.A, cum laude, in 1982. He began his legal career as a Marine officer attached to the 1st Marine Division at Camp Pendleton, California. In the very first case assigned to him, he took the case to trial, obtaining a “not guilty” verdict from a jury for a Marine Gunnery Sergeant. Soon, Mr. Burnett began to handle the most serious cases at Camp Pendleton, including a national security case for which he needed to obtain a top-secret clearance. John left active duty holding the rank of Captain and attained the rank of Major as a reservist.
Following his time as a Marine officer, Attorney Burnett began to represent individuals and families who suffered catastrophic personal injuries, medical malpractice, and wrongful deaths. Mr. Burnett is a seasoned and skilled trial lawyer. He has taken 46 cases to verdict in his successful career, including obtaining a verdict in a birth/brain injury lawsuit for $17,000,000. Many of his other cases also resulted in million-dollar verdicts and settlements for clients, included wrongful death, premises liability, motor vehicle accidents, and medical malpractice lawsuits.
A native of Ohio, Mr. Burnett is a frequent lecturer on trial advocacy techniques as well as on the prosecution of personal injury, wrongful death, and catastrophic injury cases. An enthusiastic outdoorsman, he has been active in Project Healing Waters for years, an organization dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing.
