Liza was my defense lawyer for both criminal and civil cases that my own husband filed against me. We had an argument, he assaulted me, and when I reacted, he called the police and I was arrested. He accused me of domestic violence against him and my children. He then filed for divorce two days before our 25th wedding anniversary, and served me the papers at the courthouse the day after! Liza was right there when it happened. So, I had three cases to fight. He ended up terminating the Civil DV order after I signed the Agreed Temporary Order for the family law case. My husband had been living a seedy, double life, and with all the evidence of that, Liza influenced the Prosecutor to dismiss my criminal case! Liza is a consummate attorney, is level-headed, personable, and has a sense of humor that disarms opposing counsel. I highly recommend Liza Burke!

I recently found myself in deep, uncharted waters... accusations of domestic violence leading to an arrest, over 36 horrific hours incarcerated, and criminal charges lingering over my head. I quickly realized you are not innocent until proven guilty. The legal system can be difficult, unfavorable, and overwhelming.
I have dealt with several lawyers in civil matters, so I was skeptical and nervous facing an issue that could impact so many aspects of my life. I hired Liza Burke based on the reviews here and our initial meeting, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Ms Burke immediately put my fears to rest. Unlike many other attorneys, she is a great, empathetic listener, consistent, transparent, and offers invaluable knowledge and expertise into your process. She not only communicates a plan, but also executes it, so I was confident the entire time despite not knowing the outcome. I am pleased, relieved, and grateful my case was dismissed!
You get what you pay for, and when you have a lot at stake, don't leave it to chance or anything less than the best. Thank you Liza Burke!

I'm very happy that I chose Liza to represent me against possible DV charges. She was able to talk to the prosecutor and convince him not to file charges. Throughout this, Liza was kind, responsive and held a great sense of humor to lift my spirits under trying circumstances. I highly recommend her as a defense attorney.
Martin Hodges, Car accident Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I had the pleasure of being opposing counsel against Liza on a complex case involving allegations of child abuse. Liza is well prepared, extremely intelligent, and a worthy and tenacious adversary in the courtroom. Liza fights hard for her clients and gets excellent results. Liza is courteous, professional, and charismatic. I truly enjoyed working with Liza. I would not hesitate to refer anyone needing a highly skilled trial attorney to Liza Burke.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Liza is a wonderful attorney who I have worked with as co-counsel as well as opposing counsel. She is diligent, competent, and goes above and beyond for her clients. As opposing counsel she is professional while still being a zealous advocate for her clients. I highly recommend Liza and hope to continue working with her.
