…I know we were a difficult case, but somehow, with his expert knowledge of divorce law, the litigation process, and divorce financial planning, his calm even-handed manner, we were able to come to an agreement we both felt we could live with. I have no doubt we could not have done so without Danny’s help. I actually looked forward to attending our sessions because of how much I learned and the confidence I had in Danny’s fairness and his ability to help us with this difficult process. It would have been far more expensive for us, both financially and emotionally, without Danny’s help. I highly recommend mediation with Danny for anyone going through a separation or divorce.

When I first called Resolution Point, I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I wasn’t expecting however was for Danny to answer his own phone and to take the time to talk with me right away. Beyond the impressive qualifications that Danny Burk brings to the table, the most noticeable quality about Danny is his humanity. He has a gentle and reassuring way about him, and he makes a process that can be both stressful and emotional more bearable. Danny knows how to make you feel comfortable, yet manages to keep things moving in a very professional and effective manner. Thank you.
Mr. Burk was also the founder, owner and President of Compass Computer Services, Inc. from 1987 until he sold Compass in 2000. He has extensive first-hand experience with technology issues, as well as day-to-day business operations. He managed all technical, financial, and administrative aspects of this computer and telecommunications consulting firm.
We used Danny’s services during what was arguably one of the most difficult times of our lives. We are both so grateful for his superior efforts to efficiently and effectively facilitate our mediation. His professionalism, knowledge, and experience were evident and fundamental in giving us peace of mind during the whole process, while his reassuring demeanor and respectful sense of humor helped us feel more tranquil about our circumstances.

WHAT OTHERS SAY
“I wanted to introduce myself as the attorney who has been retained by [one of your mediation clients] to review, and comment upon, the draft settlement agreement that you previously prepared…. I have been practicing matrimonial law for 34 years in Northern Virginia, and I told [our mutual client] that I have never seen a more thorough and professionally-drafted settlement document. I feel compelled to simply inform you of my personal belief that you have constructed a marvelous agreement for both parties; and can rest assured that your name has now been put at the very top of the ‘mediator referral list’ for all four attorneys in this law firm.”
