I recently settled my case leaded by Mr. Ronald C. Burke. He's very brilliant, compassionate and fight for you until your satisfactions are met. I'd recommend him one hundred percent.

In dealing with Ron Burke I finally felt that I was with a lawyer that believed in my case just as much as i did and was not there just to make a quick buck. My case was unique and there is not a lot of lawyers that handle this type of case because legal malpractice is a very grey area. At the end a recovery was made and recovery or not I considered myself very fortunate to have been represented by Mr. Ron Burke. So when you think that there is no one to help you, think again, Ronald C Burke attorney at law.

I found Ronald Burke to be an outstanding lawyer. He is smart, honest and kind. I appreciated the fact that my calls and questions were respectfully anwsered in a timely manner. Ron carefully explained the details of my case in terms I could relate to. At one point I wanted to settle, he encourage me to wait and I am thrilled that I did. My settlement was more than I could have ever imagined. I am forever grateful to him.

I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Burke was one of the most talented and formidable adversaries I have ever encountered during a trial in over thirty years of trying cases. He was extremely well prepared on all the facts and he understood the medicine as well as any of the physician/doctor witnesses. He was a consummate professional and clearly devoted to the best interests of his injured client. The jury believed his arguments and trusted his word. I only hope I never have to face him again.
Todd Strier, Personal injury Attorney
I can't say enough about Ron. He is a dedicated, intelligent trial attorney who knows how to take care of a client with respect and handle a case in the most professional and efficient manner. We should have more attorneys like Ron!
