Attorney James Burrows joins Johns, Flaherty & Collins, SC

La Crosse attorney James M. Burrows has joined Johns, Flaherty & Collins, SC, becoming a partner in the law firm in September.

The addition of Burrows grows Johns, Flaherty & Collins legal team to 17 attorneys. Burrows concentrates his practice on civil litigation, alternative dispute resolution, business and corporate law and trademark law.
