Vermont Criminal Defense During COVID-19

Published by Jessica Burke on

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted Burke Law’s ability to quickly adapt to an ever-changing Vermont criminal defense environment without compromising our commitment to our clients to be accessible, informed and passionate advocates.

Burke Law has been pioneering the use of technology in criminal defense since its founding. With the strategic use of technology we can provide faster, better results to our Vermont criminal defense clients at more affordable rates than other criminal defense firms.

We became a paperless firm in 2017 when we opened our second office location in Hartford, Vermont. Our business process allows us to securely access our files remotely and streamline client access to important information vital to their defense. Our low overhead, high accessibility model keeps our business costs low while we provide exceptional defense services to our clients at affordable rates.

We have 24/7 coverage to speak with a live person. An on-call attorney is available for immediate callbacks and consultations from 7am – 11pm on most days.

The unprecedented coronavirus crisis has required social distancing and working from home. Burke Law has used a remote work model since its inception and we do not anticipate any disruption in service to our clients. We are prepared and ready to support you however you need during this time.

The Vermont Supreme Court has declared a judicial emergency on March 16, 2020. Court access has been limited and only emergency hearings continue to occur. This necessary and socially responsible step can also be confusing for clients wondering whether they need to appear for a previously scheduled court date. Whether you are a current or potential client, we can help you determine if you need to appear for a hearing during the COVID-19 pandemic or not. Contact us today for a free consultation.
