Since our inception Burke Lawyers has built a strong and enviable foundation of experience, expertise and service for our clients across Melbourne and Australia.

Our clients come first, every time and our holistic approach underpins all facets of our Firm including:

  • how we operate;
  • our mission and values;
  • and how we assist our clients, focusing on building long term and genuine relationships.

Burke Lawyers is led by three dynamic female principals, two of whom have worked their way up through the Firm with the third being one of the few lawyers in Australia who is also admitted to practice as an Attorney-at-Law to the New York State Bar in the United States. Working with our team, these Principals have established a longstanding and strong reputation for delivering excellence in quality, timeliness and results for our clients.

Our primary legal services are: Commercial & Business, Property & Development, Litigation & Disputes (including alternative dispute resolution), Wills & Estates and VCAT Appointed Administration.

When asked, our clients tell us that we give them peace of mind and confidence to make informed and empowered decisions.

Empowering You

We help our clients navigate the often complex body that is “the law”. We simplify principles and process with clear, succinct and comprehensive advice so our clients feel truly informed and empowered in their decisionmaking process.

Creating Choices

We carefully examine our clients’ position, goals and needs, and how these may impact other aspects of their life and business. We outline advice that is practical, commercial and strategic, ensuring we explain and create choices for our clients to consider.

Successful Outcomes

A successful outcome for our clients is the priority. We challenge traditional legal practice, finding ways to save our clients time and
innovate in the way we work to deliver value, the best legal advice and positive solutions for our clients. Every time.

What do our clients and partners say?

I’ve been a client of your firm a few times in the last year or so most recently with Sandra Le handling a fairly difficult property purchase for me.

I just wanted to congratulate you on your excellent staff.  Emma Dickens was excellent in handling a straight conveyance for me earlier in the year.  But I particularly wanted to say Sandra was brilliant.  I couldn’t be more praiseworthy of her and her work.  People will always complain when they’re not happy – but they don’t always take the time to acknowledge great work and so I wanted to make sure Sandra gets the credit she deserves.  She was excellent.  I also referred a couple of people to the firm and they also had particularly high praise for the firm and the quality of service.

So well done to you and your team there – particularly Emma and definitely Sandra who is a very impressive lawyer!

I had the opportunity to engage Kristy Muhlhan for handling conveyancing and settlement  ( following the retirement of my previous lawyer after 40 yrs. association in handling all my affairs ). Kristy and her conveyancing team leader, Wendy Toura ,  provided an excellent service. I was kept well informed about the progress and everything was handled in a timely and courteous manner and without any stress. Due to Covid, face to face interaction was limited , but the whole process appeared to proceed in an efficient and seamless manner. I highly appreciate and thank Kristy and Wendy.

Property client

Our sincere thanks to the conveyancing team at Burke Lawyers who provided a prompt and professional service for our recent property transaction.

T & K O’Brien

I was in a most challenging position following my partner’s death where he left his will entirely to me, excluding his children. Burke Lawyers were extremely professional and brilliant with guiding me in dealing with this situation. From the very beginning, Burke lawyers were open and transparent about their costs in representing me and responded with immediate action to all my queries.

I am truly grateful for the highly exceptional support that Rosy, Rohani and others have extended to me and felt delighted that my partner, although deceased, was represented in the fairest way possible. I highly recommend Burke Lawyers to all.

I had an exceedingly positive experiencing with Stewart, throughout the course of selling my property during the coronavirus crisis. Stewart is always a calming voice at the end of the phone line, and able to proactively navigate any obstacles, which was especially pertinent during the current climate. Stewart was always available for my questions or concerns and I always felt very supported. He was able to effectively coordinate both my sale and purchase settlement dates, which enabled the process to be much less stressful for me, as well as more cost efficient. Stewart is highly competent and I would encourage you to invest in his services.
