Get To Know New York City Injury Attorney Princess Tate-Burriss

My personal journey to become an injury attorney began when I was eight years old.  It was at this age that I set my intention to become an attorney and never wavered.  After completing my undergraduate studies at Spelman College, a HBCU for women with a major in English and a minor in Mathematics, I came back to New York to attend law school at New York Law School (NYLS), where I served as an editor for their Law Review. I received my JD in 2002 and completed each of my degrees cum laude.

After finishing at NYLS in 2002, I passed the Bar exams in New York and New Jersey, and began practicing as an attorney in New York City. I practiced with Cellino & Barnes in Manhattan, and most recently decided to move into the next phase of my career with The Barnes Firm. In my nearly two decades of practice, I have witnessed first-hand multiple times the ways in which an accident can change a person’s life – and that’s what inspires me every day to deliver the best representation that each client deserves. I emulate the same commitment I had for my education when working with each client, and offer my clients help through what is often a very challenging period in their lives.

At The Barnes Firm, our clients are more than just a case number. Every accident victim is a human with rights that need to be upheld, and I am proud to fight for the justice and compensation each client deserves.

I am proud of my determination to reach my goals.

I have no desire to live anywhere else, maybe I will change my mind when I am older and retired.

I would like to visit multiple cities in Hawaii.

A bird – I would love to fly around and look at nature and experience the freedom of flying.
