Real Estate Law

The Burke family has its roots on the East End as early as 1935.  Burke & Sullivan was founded in 1970 in Nassau County, Long Island, expanding its practice to Suffolk County in the mid-seventies and moving out to the East End shortly thereafter.  The foundation of our practice has been built upon a strong commitment to serving our community as advocates and forging lifelong relationships.  Today, Burke & Sullivan has grown into a multi-generational practice, ensuring, through our commitment to providing the highest quality of local legal counsel, that we will continue to serve as the premier legal resource on the East End.

Burke & Sullivan has been providing legal counsel, guidance and quality legal solutions to friends, neighbors and investors in the real estate, business and service industries.  We pride ourselves on counseling and navigating our clients through the legal process whether it is purchasing or selling a home, starting or growing a business and being advocates for those in the service industry.

We have built a reputation for our unique hands-on knowledge and understanding of the laws that govern the East End.  While our roots were firmly planted decades ago, Burke & Sullivan is enthusiastically committed to the future.  Our legal experience and knowledge that began with our practicing founders has now been passed onto a new generation of attorneys sharing the same commitment to excellence, respect for the law, experience in government service and a level of client service that is at the heart of the Burke & Sullivan approach to practice.
