TESTIMONIALS

  • “This firm is one, if not the top firm in the Southeast. I steer all my work to Burr & Forman exclusively. I have used other attorneys on deals where conflicts may arise and those are good firms, but I still go back to Burr time and again.”

    - Chambers 2012

  • “He’s probably the best attorney I know – an excellent attorney. He is one of the few that understands business – a deal maker not a deal breaker. He grasps very readily the picture of what’s going on and he is a quick observer. He’s a lawyer with an understanding of business – a bit of a psychologist who understands what makes people tick. He is quick and efficient. The billing is always reasonable. We are very happy with him.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • "Burr & Forman has a very good understanding of business needs with focus on producing tangible results. They always provide solid practical advice without losing sight of the big picture."

    -Best Lawyers 2012

  • “We deal with the maritime attorneys in the firm. They follow instructions well and submit timely reports. They are easy to work with and try to facilitate the best possible results. They have maritime expertise. Certain attorneys in the firm have committed their careers to the maritime industry.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “My primary contacts at the firm are Doug Anderson and John Kavanagh. Doug assists in real estate matters and John assists in maritime and litigation matters. Both are outstanding attorneys with a wealth of knowledge in their areas. They both have many strengths, but the most valuable quality is their practical, no nonsense and efficient approach to all issues.”
