Burnett & Williams


Burnett & Williams is deeply committed to serving the communities we live in, and the Ampersand Pantry Project is just one small way that we can give something back to our neighbors and friends.

As one of Virginia’s oldest and most experienced Personal Injury law firms, Burnett & Williams has a long history of working to strengthen civic life in the Commonwealth and support local institutions in the communities we serve.

Free Lunches 100000 served


The Ampersand Pantry Project was created by Peter Burnett to provide help to Northeast Leesburg neighborhood residents unexpectedly finding themselves in need of food and other personal essentials. During the COVID-19 shutdown, Ampersand provided over 130,000 lunches to those in need no questions asked, 7 days a week. The project also distributes fully cooked Thanksgiving meals to stressed neighbors and puts on an Angel Tree gift distribution at Christmastime.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation.

Donations can be made on our GoFundMe page: https://gofund.me/4748b1db

Checks can be mailed to The Ampersand Pantry Project, 105 Loudoun St., SE, Leesburg, Virginia 20175.

We are happy to discuss your auto insurance circumstances with you at any time for no charge. Or, call us to schedule an insurance presentation for your business or organization.

Ampersand award

So important that it was once the 27th letter of the alphabet, the ampersand is at the core of Burnett & Williams principles. Our success on behalf of injured clients is, in large part, the result of teamwork, partnering connecting diverse ideas. Likewise, successful community improving strategies often connect and leverage the diverse talents of committed and talented citizens. We like to think of the ampersand as standing for the success of you AND me, as opposed to the success of you OR me. Using this award as a symbol of our appreciation, we recognize and thank those that share and practice the ampersand approach to success, particularly when it benefits the community.

Service on

Charity Support
and Sponsorships

Our team at Burnett & Williams appreciates many groups who dedicate themselves to making the community a better place. We channel a portion of any referral fee to a number of local charities, and also act as sponsors for local events benefiting community growth and well-being.


Inspired by the grit, honor, and selfless sacrifice of our nation’s military veterans, Burnett & Williams collaborates annually with local venues to co-host fundraiser/awareness events for our veterans. These events feature a number of local, veteran-oriented organizations, such as the American Legion, VFW, Heroes on the River, Combat Veterans Alliance, and more. Stay tuned to our Blog for more about the great organizations, venues, food vendors, and musical acts that come together for a great cause.
