Much of Timothy M. Burke's practice is devoted to local government law and the government decision-making process.  His background prepared him for that.  He spent four years in Cincinnati City Hall as Legislative Assistant to then Council member Jerry Springer (yes, that Jerry Springer), served as Executive Director of Little Miami, Inc., a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation of the Little Miami River, a state and national scenic river, and twice served on the staff of Congressman Tom Luken.  Today, 60% of his practice involves representing governmental entities, representing clients in front of governmental decision-making bodies, or litigation for or against governmental entities.  He has served as Law Director for one of Cincinnati's suburbs, Lockland, for almost 30 years and has also served as Law Director for another suburb, the Village of Evendale for eight years.  He has frequently served as Special Counsel to numerous other local governments and often is asked to speak on topics including municipal law, land use and zoning, eminent domain, civil rights and elections law.  He has also served as Special Counsel to the Attorney General of Ohio.
