    • “Our firm has used Burr & Forman, and particularly Logan Hinkle, for our retirement plan and many employment law issues over the years.  I have always found their entire staff of lawyers, paralegals and assistants to be knowledgeable and just as importantly prompt in their response to our questions or concerns.  They have always kept us abreast of changes in the law and suggest changes that we should make in our employment practices, or our retirement plan, to keep current and compliant.  Our relationship has always been professional but at the same time very cordial and respectful.  Our association with Logan and his partners, associates and colleagues has been outstanding.”
