Education and Work History

Prior to being admitted to the Massachusetts bar, Attorney Burton had achieved excellence in the nursing profession.  She had achieved her Master’s a Degree and practiced in a variety of settings, teaching in universities at the baccalaureate and master’s level, practicing in hospitals and the community as a Visiting Nurse.   If one were to read her article, “The Grieving Patient and Family” published in the American Journal of Nursing, one would know her better.  Her background has provided Attorney Burton with the education and understanding not available to the usual attorney with only a law degree.  The practice of family law is not best achieved with a “cookie cutter approach.”.   Family Law requires an understanding of the dynamics within the family so that values which even the client might not have identified are recognized and explored.  Without this understanding, the client may walk out at the end of the day feeling like something has been left out, something is missing. Attorney Burton is not practicing law to achieve such a result.
