Robert C. Burke Jr.
Mr. Burke graduated from Florida State University in 1968 and from Stetson University College of Law in January 1974. He was a past trust officer for First Union National Bank, now part of Wells Fargo through merger. He and his wife, Janice have been married since 1966 with two children and two grandchildren.
Mr. Burke is “Of Counsel” to the Richards, Gilkey, Fite, Slaughter, Pratesi, & Ward, P.A. Law Firm in Clearwater, Florida. He has two staff individuals, having more than 45 years of experience. His legal assistant, Carla, has worked with Mr. Burke for over 28 years.
Candidly the most important thing an attorney can do for his client is to “preserve that client’s alternatives”. Times change, people change, the law changes, financial circumstances change. You need to be able to adapt as the case may be and adjust your planning and business interests accordingly.
As a small firm, when you engage the services of Mr. Burke, you get Mr. Burke, not some associate otherwise.
