Attorney Profile

Cynthia M. Burke has been a lawyer since 1998. She began her career working for the AV rated firm of MacKay, Wrynn & Brady in Queens, New York where she honed her legal skills and gained substantial experience in the areas of real estate law, bankruptcy, estate administration, divorce and litigation.

Ms. Burke established her private practice in 2005. Currently, she focuses her legal work on these same areas of law, and has updated her skills to reflect the current state of the law and economy with respect to real estate, foreclosure, divorce and bankruptcy.

In August of 2006, Cynthia Burke took over cases from retiring attorney, J. J. Serota. Ms. Burke is pleased to be handling matters for attorney Serota’s former clients. If you were one of his clients, and have any questions, she will be happy to help in any way possible.

Wishing to give back to the community, Cynthia has consistently taken on divorce cases through the Nassau Suffolk Law Services, since the time she was admitted to practice. The Nassau County Bar Association named Ms. Burke pro bono attorney of the month in February 2006. Since that time, she has handled numerous other cases through the Volunteer Lawyers Project.

In 2000 Cynthia was admitted to the Florida Bar, and has handled Florida matters both in New York and in Florida.
