               Attorney Francis C. Burke, Jr. (Franny) graduated from Fitchburg State College in 1976 and then went on to graduate from Suffolk University Law School (Boston, MA) in 1979.

            While in Law School, Franny participated in the Student Prosecutor Program developed between the Law School and the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office.

            Following his admission to the Massachusetts Bar in 1979, Franny began employment as a part-time District Court Prosecutor for the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office and also began practicing with Attorney Robert M. Bailey in Clinton, Massachusetts.  Following a decision to enter the private practice of law on a full time basis, the firm of Bailey and Burke was established.

            After successfully completing the New Hampshire Bar Examination, Franny began practicing law in New Hampshire in 1987.  Since 1987, he has opened two New Hampshire satellite offices in Meredith and Littleton.  These offices have allowed him to pursue his outdoor interests in the lakes and mountains of New Hampshire, while providing convenient locations to advise and counsel his New Hampshire clients.

            During the course of over thirty years, Franny practiced in many areas of law, including criminal defense, motor vehicle violations, family law, civil litigation, bankruptcy and foreclosures.

            With the passage of time, Franny began to concentrate his areas of practice to where they continue today.  They include in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, areas such as:
