John Burke is a talented, experienced, collaborative lawyer. He is smart, direct, ethical and trustworthy. He uses these skills to obtain well balanced, thorough solutions to important family matters. Based on his experience in collaborative law, estate planning, and my direct experience with John's work, I highly recommend him.
John's experience and guidance proved extremely important to reach the resolution I was seeking. On numerous occasions he guided me around potential pitfalls that would have had significant negative ramificaions to my post divorce life. John maintained a clear understanding on what I my collaborative goals were and kept me on track from day one. I appreciated the fact he didn't nickle and dime me for small incidental time or for copies like my ex's attorney did. I felt John was with me to solve the bigger task at hand and not to seek charges for each and every little possible item.
John was my lawyer for a collaborative divorce. He was readily available and flexible in scheduling meetings. It is apparent that he has significant experience handling collaborative divorces. There was only one point when the process looked like it might get derailed, and he was instrumental to getting things back on course.
My wife and I were able to divide our assets and map out the future in a way that best met our individual interests. Compared to a "traditional" adversarial approach, we saved time, money, and emotional energy. I would have preferred not to have to go through a divorce, but this was the best way of the options available.
