Dear Friends and Clients,

It is with a heavy heart that I must share that attorney Thomas Burke passed away unexpectedly on May 18, 2023. This is a tremendous loss to his family as well as to his friends, clients and the greater legal and fire service communities in Washington. Tom was my former partner and since 2006 served as of counsel to my and my father’s law firm. Tom’s capacity for knowledge was unsurpassed, his mind was quick and he was able to handle every issue I and my fire service clients could throw at him. He was a kind and gentle man, with a great sense of humor. When my Dad passed in 2014, Tom was there to help and support my law practice and became the guy I could always turn to for a bit of advice and guidance. He will be greatly missed.

True to his humble nature there will be no public memorial service but if you wanted to make a donation in his memory to either Seattle Children’s Hospital or CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) his family would be honored.
