Liza Burke is one of only seven women in the State of Washington selected for Super Lawyer recognition by Washington Law and Politics in Criminal Defense


“I find it hard to put into words how thankful I am. I was charged with three felonies based on the word of my wife and the man she was having an affair with. Liza saw right away that the “victims” were not credible and built my defense with the intent of having all charges dismissed. Liza and her team worked relentlessly to prove my case. In the end Liza’s ability to aggressively negotiate my case and not accept anything but dismissal proved to be her best quality. I always felt Liza had my best interests in mind rather than her own and she made a very difficult situation manageable. I can’t say enough to express how impressed I am with Liza, her team and how hard they worked on my case.”     – Client, multiple felony DV charges

“Liza is a very professional, knowledgeable attorney, who works hard fighting for the truth with compassion and understanding, communicating with her clients at every step of the way.” – Client, felony DV charge and UW Discipline (all dismissed)

“Honestly, it was such a positive shock to have this situation abruptly end, I’m still reeling with happiness.  We can’t thank you enough for believing in [our son], representing him, and ultimately saving the fate of his future, you truly are exceptional!.” – Mother of client charged with multiples felonies (all dismissed).

“I’ve worked with Liza for well over a year in a domestic violence case and a related child-dependency case. Liza has in depth knowledge not only of the law, but also of the legal scene, i.e. the prosecutors, judges, and other professionals. She presented my case well in court, and gave me a great deal of helpful advice for how to accomplish all I needed to do out of court. Both cases are now resolved entirely in my favor. “  - Client, DV and dependency

“You delivered exactly as advertised.”  - Father of juvenile faced with sex offense

“I want to thank you for the success we had. Your hard work, your no-nonsense style, and your “no-sitting -round, be busy,  let’s-do-things-in-parallel approach” was right down my alley.”  – Mother of honor’s student kicked out of school

“It was a pleasure working with you both and we would definitely come to you for any legal advice (hopefully nothing major or criminal)” -  Client, DV case

“It turns out you had represented her brother, a long time ago when he was facing a felony Robbery as an adult and you were able to get it down to a juvenile conviction.  [She] says that you are the reason why she’s always wanted to go to law school and become a lawyer.  You were unwittingly her role model.” — Colleague regarding a colleague

“In all honesty and sincerity when I say …. I believe in angels, they come to me in different forms, I believe you are one of my angels and I have trust in you and your skills.” – Client, DV protection order

“You made getting X out look easy, which we all know was not the case.  It is a pleasure to watch other lawyers ply their craft when they are as deft as you.” - Colleague and stepfather of juvenile faced with gun charge

“It was so amazing how your involvement in X’s issue came about, from a referral by X …it was your day off, as I recall, but you just happened to be in the office and pick up our phone call….there really is no luck…it was meant to be! Your understanding of X’s situation was so quick, and your sincere compassion so evident….we knew you were the right person to represent her.  Thank you again….we’ll not forget you.”  - Father of DV client.

“Thank you so much for being a source of stability for us this past crazy year – I’m sure you don’t even realize how much that meant…”
- Mother of juvenile client facing criminal charges and school expulsion
