Professional Experience

Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Burlingham served in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), regularly examining a variety of financial institutions, including some of the nation’s largest banks, to assess their compliance with federal consumer financial laws in areas of deposit, auto servicing, mortgage origination and servicing, mortgage origination fair lending, and credit card fair lending. Mr. Burlingham also assessed the institutions’ compliance management system, consisting of its board and management oversight, policies and procedures, training, monitoring and audit functions, consumer complaint response, and service provider oversight, providing supervisory recommendations and prescribing required corrective action. During his time with the Bureau, Mr. Burlingham also led teams of examiners on deposit and mortgage servicing examinations, with a focus on the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA); Truth in Savings Act (TISA); Truth in Lending Act (TILA); Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA); and Unfair, Deceptive, or Abusive Acts or Practices (UDAAP).

During law school and shortly thereafter, Mr. Burlingham served as a Public Interest Law Fellow in the City of Waltham Law Department, a Consumer Law Fellow at Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS), and obtained favorable outcomes for hundreds of clients in matters involving the Social Security Administration.


Mr. Burlingham received a Client Advocacy Award in 2016 for his work on behalf of clients applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and more recently received two awards at the CFPB in recognition of exceptional performance or service.
