Professional Profile:
Burke Law Group provides extensive legal services for all types of family law and estate planning needs. Two of the attorneys are litigation focused, while John Burke has chosen to concentrate his practice on the use of collaborative practice in divorces. John believes that for a majority of the divorces, it is possible to have the couple resolve their divorce issues without having to go through the stress and trauma of court motions, hearings, and a trial. This often results in a healthier post-divorce relationship, which can be very important when children are involved. John was involved in eastern Washington's first collaborative divorce case. He has continued this groundbreaking trend by being one of the most active collaborative divorce attorneys in the region, and now limits his divorce practice to only collaborative law cases.
