Al Burns

Mesothelioma Hope is made up of a team of patient advocates, like Al Burns. He has committed his career to raise awareness about mesothelioma and asbestos exposure and fighting on behalf of patients and their families.

Al has over a decade’s worth of experience helping clients find answers, seek
solace, and pursue justice. Al brings his positive, can-do attitude to work each
day and finds joy in helping folks who have little-to-no experience with the
legal system.

Born and raised in Medford, Massachusetts (or “Meffa” or “Medfid,” as its lovingly
referred to by locals), Al received his associate’s degree in management from
the New England College of Business and further studied at Bentley University.

Al finds motivation in lending a helping hand to others in need. Given his caring
nature, Al empathizes deeply with those who may be suffering and/or feeling
overwhelmed by circumstances beyond their control. To help ease the burden
for these individuals, Al lends his vast experience, positive attitude, and genuine
desire to help.

He prides himself on being a valued member of the Mesothelioma Hope team.
It means the world to Al to hear a client say, “I’m glad I called today” or “Thank
you so much for your assistance — it means a lot!” Hearing things like these
helps Al feel rest assured, knowing his hard work and effort are bringing positivity
to others.

Like many New Englanders, Al grew up a die-hard Boston sports fan, always
supporting the Patriots, Bruins, Red Sox, and Celtics. These days, Al lives with
his wife and two daughters, Brooklyn and Londyn, in the serene Southern New
Hampshire town of Hudson. Having grown up in a close-knit family himself,
Al treasures every moment he gets to spend with his family.

Living in New Hampshire, Al is surrounded by some of the most beautiful
wilderness in all of New England. He enjoys being outdoors, whether that’s
climbing a mountain or relaxing on a local beach. He also enjoys spending his
free time mountain-bike riding, skiing, and playing the guitar.

Al looks forward to hearing your story and providing guidance during this difficult time.
