Mara E. J. Burnett



Mara E.J. Burnett is a partner in The Mandell Law Firm.

Her credo is hard work and honesty. She brings her unique down-to-earth style to sensitive and often complex matters, winning her the respect of injury victims and adversaries alike.

Ms. Burnett began her legal career as a Research Attorney for the Los Angeles Superior Court, where she analyzed thousands of legal issues and literally wrote the rulings and opinions for several prominent judges. Over the next 30 years, she focused her private practice on catastrophic injury cases arising from motor vehicle accidents, defective products, and dangerous conditions on the property. Her credits include a tragic case which later contributed to major changes in automobile safety measures (Martinez v. GM – brake-shift interlock). She participated in mass tort train accident litigation, as well as prosecuting successful actions against negligent physicians.

Mara offers free consultations to all clients and gives a special personal touch to each relationship, which brings her clients back when she is needed again. Her practice encompasses all of Southern California, from Santa Barbara to San Diego.

Ms. Burnett has successfully prosecuted appeals in the higher courts, which includes the landmark published decision in Zipusch v. LA Workout (2007) 155 Cal. App. 4th 1281.
