One of the BEST attorneys I have ever had. Jessica ("Jess") is simply awesome. I contacted her regarding a complex custody case. She was available throughout and I never felt abandoned. She is super knowledgeable but ever more important she cares. She cares about the details, she listens and she is a problem solver. I trusted her and she did not disappoint. I recommend Jessica (and Kathryn Guy who is am amazing paralegal!!) with the highest regard!!!!!!

Uppermost Professional Lawyer
Jessica Lasky has done wonders for me! I have a drama field, complicated, children involved, plus a criminal case that can affect some outcome of other cases. Jessica is the uppermost professional and so genuine. That's how a lawyer should be! Able to bring the professionalism to the courtroom and be genuine and gracious to clients! Perfect balance. Before Jessica I had a horrable lawyer where they didn't take my case seriously. Jessica and her team will do ABSOLUTELY everything they can for you! They have always talked to me when I needed and have gave me useful information when I didn't even know I needed it. I will and have recommend Jessica Lasky and her team to everybody I know!

Exceeded expectations!
Jessica was professional yet personable from start to finish with the modification of orders in my family law case. Each inquiry I had, from initial contact to finalized documents, was met in a timely and concise manner with action that she followed through with everytime. I am confident Jessica can help you with your family law needs too!

I’m still currently going through my divorce and custody for my son. It’s been about almost 4 months with Jessica and she is amazing. She is quick to get back to you when you need her and not hard to reach at all. I’m swinging for the fences in my divorce because my ex-wife makes me out to be a crazy man and war vet because I have PTSD. But Jessica uses facts, documents and tangible evidence to defend me. because of her I feel like I have a say in my sons life that I didn’t have before her because I’m a man and we have all heard it before about the woman gets everything. That is far from the truth! I highly recommend Jessica. I feel confident in my situation because she can play cut throat when necessary or be as polite as can be. Please if you are single dad going through a divorce you have to hire Jessica. I promise she will not disappoint. Thank you Jessica for everything you have done this far for me and I can’t wait to continue working with you for a bright future with my son and I! Thank you thank you!

Super Lawyer at the Burnham Law Firm
Prior to coming to Burnham Law, I had a do nothing attorney in a divorce that insisted I settle for far more that was reasonable or appropriate, whom thought everything was "red herring", and couldn’t be bothered with the glaring omissions in discovery from opposing party. I replaced him with the terrific legal team at Burnham Law that forged a winning strategy around the discovery process to expose the necessary facts required to drive the case to a fair and reasonable out of court settlement. Jessica Lasky was tenacious, thorough, and instrumental in securing a fair and equitable out of court settlement! I'd highly recommend Jessica Lasky and her terrific team at Burnham Law!

Excellent Representation
Mrs. Lasky made a very difficult situation much easier to deal with. She was prompt in all of her responses to questions and changes in my situation and always friendly. Her advice was always straightforward and realistic. She chimed in when necessary but never neglected to hear my wishes and handle the situation accordingly. I highly recommend Mrs. Lasky as an attorney.

Jessica has been excellent in my divorce/custody case. She was thorough enough to do all of her research regarding false allegations my ex made and was able to present our side with FACTS and LAW to back up our stance. She is brilliant and thinks outside of the box. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone smart enough to get things done!
