She is a very nice and caring person and will put everything she has in defending you I promise. I usually hate lawyers but Leah is the best out there I recommend Leah Henderson for your attorney any day of the week.”

“Jessica was very attentive and had answers to all of my questions. Due to the nature of my job a criminal conviction would be career ending. She worked hard to get an optimal result. The case and all charges were dismissed. I would highly recommend her services. Thank you Burke Law.”

“Leah took my case when I believed I was a goner, every one wanted me to take a plea especially being on parole. No one believed me but she found the truth in the paper work and suggested to me to please wait.So for the first time in my life I was right and knew if proven guilty I would die in Jail due to medical issues.For the first time in my life I let my self trust some one else I wanted my day in court, well I never got that day because Leah called me and said case dismissed. Thank you.”
