John Burke probably works harder for his clients and obtains better results because of that work than any attorney I deal with on a regular basis. If he doesn't deserve the highest rating, none of us do.

Mr. Burke is highly qualified in both legal ability and trial experience. My belief is that Mr. Burke has substantially more trial experience than many lawyers of his age. He also has the ability to understand and argue complex legal issues. He also cares about his clients and is not simply there to bill clients, but always seeks the best result in a cost effective manner.
