    -Scott Weaver

  • “Words cannot express the gratitude AVT Simulation has for Burr Forman, and particularly, Peter Vilmos in handling our corporate legal needs.  But if they did, they would be: consummate professionals, exceptional character, highly responsive, team partner, fair, informative, and committed.”

    -Cliff Ingari, Chief Operating Officer, AVT Simulation

  • “Probably the smartest human being to whom I can honestly refer to as a friend. His practice covers securities, banks, investment banking transactions, anything remotely financially related, personal financial investments as well. He is just smart as hell and has a mastery of a fairly wide array of disciplines which is a little unusual. He has the mental capacity to go beyond that. He is also one of the first guys I call.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “I have an excellent working relationship with a number of attorneys at the firm, all of whom I trust to handle our problems. Even at a generously negotiated rate, we pay the attorneys at Burr & Forman a slightly higher rate than we pay other attorneys for similar services. We are willing to pay that premium because of the firm’s competence in so many areas, whereas other smaller firms tend to specialize in areas and have weaknesses in others.”
