Fantastic and Genuine Lawyer!
Jessica Burke has helped me in multiple scenarios, including a DUI charge, license issues, etc. She is polite, understanding, and very professional. She is incredibly knowledgeable and adept. I would hire Ms. Burke again in a heartbeat!

Excellent business legal assistance
Jessica and her staff have been invaluable to me as a small business owner. They make sure my contracts are solid, that my business structure is the right one for my situation, and have even helped me pursue clients for non-payment. I highly recommend them!

If you need legal representation for a DUI in VT, NH, or Mass., hiring Jessica Burke is the best move you'll ever make!
Jessica, thank you so very much for all that you've done for me regarding my DUI. The plea agreement you brokered worked out better than I could have hoped for. Your quick response to emails and calls, expert legal advice, and court savvy were so important in obtaining a plea that was beyond what I even thought we could get. I'm very satisfied with your legal work, and very fortunate to have you represent me. I would recommend you to anyone who needs legal representation.
