I recommend John Burke.
I am not overstating my Overall Rating for Mr. John Burke, Esq., he is excellent. From our first Consultation meeting, I was impressed with his understanding of what I was up against with Mortgage Fraud. He immediately pointed out what had transpired and what I had overlooked, then advised me on what WE needed to do Step-by-Step, as well as what I could expect in response as my case would unfold.
Mr. Burke was most patient with my many questions and always responded if not within an hour, at least before the end of day to waylay any concerns I was not clear on. As deceiving as the opponent was, they could not avoid or evade Mr. Burke’s strong passion at getting out the truth of the matter (and they tried everything from unclear Contracts and Agreements paperwork, Landlord – Tenant eviction, Foreclosure – whatever roadblock they put up, Mr. Burke was ever-ready and dealt with the matters to gain a win for me that I will forever be grateful for. He cared – and was passionate about making sure the outcome would be favorable for me, and it doesn’t get much better than that – he was a God Send.
I came to Mr. Burke from a previous attorney.
My case was a complicated mess! He rolled up his sleeves and fought for me…
I found John to be very personable and exceedingly professional, as was his staff. I have never been in an accident before. Not only did he and his staff do a remarkable job in keeping me informed every step of the way but also in answering all my questions and in explaining procedures and processes to me.
When decisions needed to be made, he would give me his opinion but the decision was always mine. In my opinion John Burke went above and beyond when it came to the settling of my case with its excessive doctor bills.
He’s a great advocate for his clients and he genuinely cares.
He and his staff made a horrible situation easier so I could focus on healing.
Words could never express how grateful I am to have found him/them!
I was in a car accident for the the first time and ended up in the hospital. I didn’t know who to talk with about my accident situation. So a co-worker recommend me to JOHN BURKE so I gave it a shot and set up a meeting. John Burke was very understanding, responsive, knowledgeable so that’s when I knew he was the perfect lawyer for my case. John Burke sent me to some medical providers. His staff was great and John always kept me informed.I am very happy how everything turn out in the end and John made sure of that. I’m always going to recommend John Burke to my friends and family. THANK YOU JOHN BURKE!
“Being a victim of a crime you are struggling to put so much behind you. The last thing you want to deal with are the specifics of a case, who is a fault? what are you entitled to? From the first day that I stepped foot into John’s office he took the worry away. I have never seen an attorney work so hard and really prove that he was working for me. At times the case felt over whelming and I was unclear about what could and would happen but him and his team took me through the whole process step by step. It has been a long 4 year journey and I have got to say that it is through the experience of having him as my lawyer that I have been able to get through the damage and pain of what has occurred. He is kind , compassionate and honest something that is hard to come by in the legal world. I am confident that he will be successful in his journey and change lives as he did mine.”
