Six Burr & Forman Attorneys Selected as 2013 Lawyers of the Year

September 13, 2012

Burr & Forman LLP is pleased to announce that six of its partners have been designated as “Lawyer of the Year” in their respective practice areas for 2013 by Best Lawyers in America.

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and metropolitan area receives the honor, which is awarded based on voting averages received during the publication’s annual exhaustive peer-review assessments. The “Lawyer of the Year” designation reflects the high level of respect an attorney has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism, and their integrity.

The Burr & Forman attorneys selected as “Lawyers of the Year” and their respective practice areas are:

Birmingham

John F. DeBuys, Jr., Land Use & Zoning Law

John C. Morrow, Transportation Law

Mobile

Marion A. Quina, Jr., Admiralty & Maritime Law

H. William Wasden, Labor Law – Management

Nashville

Lawrence R. Ahern III, Litigation-Bankruptcy

W. Davidson Broemel, Insurance Law

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” The complete list of 2013 “Lawyers of the Year” is available at www.bestlawyers.com.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “As a banker working out troubled loans, I really appreciated Keith's ability to help me with my legal issues, but I really valued his ability to help me understand the full spectrum of responses available to me as well as describe the pros and cons of each option. Keith's value as an attorney is amazing, but is far surpassed by his ability as a trusted advisor.”

  • “He’s really a very, very good securities lawyer…"

    -Chambers 2012

  • “I think a lot of him. He is reasonable and logical. He is very good at getting the deal done and doing so in a collaborative way as opposed to adversarial. I always refer to him and believe he will take care of the client.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • "The Burr & Forman Creditor's Rights group is top notch and definitely should be ranked with the nation's best lawyers. They are responsive, timely, very knowledgeable, resourceful, and helpful. They fight for their clients while offering alternative strategies that may be less expensive. That being said, they will "go to the mat" if necessary and do so in a prudent well prepared manner."
