Melanie Burke is an associate attorney with the law firm of Tunnell & Raysor, P.A. Her practice is concentrated in the areas of Estate Planning, Real Estate and Guardianship. Melanie received her degrees from the University of Virginia and Emory University, School of Law. She spent thirty years with the Delaware Department of Justice prosecuting criminal cases, focusing primarily on those cases that involved the most vulnerable of our society, our children and the elderly. Now in her second career as an attorney, she brings her passion for helping people to Tunnell & Raysor where she enjoys meeting with her Estate Planning clients. From her decades of experience as a Deputy Attorney General, Melanie learned how to talk to people from all walks of life, to find ways to relate to them, and, most importantly, how to make them feel at ease and comfortable with her. She genuinely likes people and finds that she doesn’t just have clients; she makes new friends every day and gets to help guide them through what can sometimes be an emotional discussion. 

Melanie lives in Camden-Wyoming with her husband and their very large, blended family that includes elderly parents, teenage children, many grandchildren, and several very spoiled dogs and cats.
