We met with Mr. Burke to discuss US and UK estate planning. He explained over a number of phone calls and a meeting at his offices in Bristol how estate taxes may apply to the estates of UK residents and the interesting benefits of relying on the treaty between the US and UK. After going through our options in relation to Florida wills, English wills, etc., we decided to go with an English will with STEP provisions (as probate here was unavoidable) and a Florida revocable living trust as this could cover our villa in Florida and assets elsewhere in the USA and could avoid probate. We were happy we could have all this done without trying to use separate lawyers for both countries.

Just a short line to say thank you so much for all your assistance in us achieving our final closure on our house in Sarasota (Florida).
We really appreciate you seeing us at short notice in your busy schedule to both notarise our documents and for the sound professional advice given to enable us to secure our purchase.
We will most certainly recommend your services to other friends and family and I hope that we can do business again with you in the near future.

Recently purchased two investment propertys in Florida. Mr Burke came recomended from another client and proved to be Very professional, efficient and totally reliable. He represented me for both transactions and ensured my interests were protected by being very thourogh. Great communication and kept us updated throughout the whole process.
Florida property law is obviously very different to UK property law. I would highly recomend Mr Burke to anyone looking to purchase property in Florida.

The sellers of our property in the US put a great deal of pressure on us to close the purchase quickly and Kevin Burke rose to the challenge of completing all research, correspondence and paperwork in a very short amount of time. We were impressed with the speed of his services. He prioritised our case and although everything was completed in a short amount of time his work was consistently thorough. Kevin has excellent knowledge of US property law and as British/French citizens we would have been lost without his advice. There were many points which he raised that were beneficial to us which we hadn't even thought of. I would certainly recommend Kevin Burke to anyone interested in purchasing a property in the US. Kevin also has a close understanding of the tax laws in the US.
