John Burke represented me during my recent collaborative divorce. He was faced with the difficult task of coming on the case in the middle due to the illness of one of his colleagues. He made this transition as painless as possible and immediately made me feel comfortable and confident. He was extremely knowledgeable and I trusted him implecitly. He was dependable and always did what he said he would do when he said he would do it. During a collaborative divorce there can be moments when things become tense and John was very skillful in navigating us through those troubled waters. Going through a divorce is always a difficult experience, especially when you have been married over 40 years. Johns ability to calmly deal with frustrations, fears and occasional anger with kindness and compassion kept the process moving forward and I am very grateful for his service.

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.
