Attorney Francis "Franny" C. Burke, Jr. 63 of Hudson, MA passed away unexpectedly at home on Tuesday, April 17, 2018.

Born June 18, 1954, Franny grew up in Berlin, MA where he was an EMT and member of the Berlin Rescue Squad & Fire Department. In his early teens, he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the BSA before becoming a Junior Assistant Scout Master of Troop I in Berlin. A love of the outdoors led him to split time between Hudson and the Mountains of Franconia, NH. He also enjoyed white water rafting in Maine, snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park, watching NASCAR, and taking numerous cruises, culminating in his dream to cruise around the world in 2017.

After graduating from Fitchburg State University in 1976 and Suffolk University Law School in Boston in 1979 he spent four decades practicing law, representing clients in the area of criminal defense, motor vehicle violations, family law, civil litigation, and bankruptcy. He briefly worked for the Worcester County District Attorneys Office and then practiced in Bailey & Burke Law Offices in Clinton for 38 years. He was also a member of the Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Worcester County, and Clinton Bar Associations.

A few words could never encapsulate such a generous, witty, and funny man, but know this-Franny's laugh shook rooms, his wisdom guided, and his kindness comforted many through hard times. He had an innate ability to make everyone feel special.

We cherish the memories and his friendship and treasure the years we shared together.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
