TESTIMONIALS

  • "...He’s terrific to work with – a very good negotiator. He is outstanding and not aggressive, which is one of the things I like about him. He is calm, factual, extremely sharp, and observant. He doesn’t miss a beat. On a very complex negotiation, we made a lot of headway due to him."

    -Chambers 2012

  • “The coordination between each individual attorney appeared smooth. I was happy with the client service.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “He has an in-depth understanding of creditors’ rights law and bankruptcy law. He is extremely responsive and is capable of seeing the business side of workouts, not just the legal side. He helps come up with a solution that is often times mutually acceptable to both sides and is tremendously successful in all the work he’d done. By far my favorite bankruptcy lawyer in Florida.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “As a client of Burr & Forman, I feel that my organization has excellent representation.  I have consulted with Amy Jordan and Bryance Metheny on numerous issues and have always found them both to be very responsive and to clarify legal matters or concerns with a sense of urgency. Specifically, Amy has handled our EEOC claims with the utmost attention to detail and has been the reason that we were successful in defending our EEOC claims with the level of success that we have had thus far.

    When we were being inundated with unemployment decisions favoring former employees, Bryance and Amy met with our Human Resources team to instruct us on the specifics of the section of law and we have had great success in turning our experience rating and saving our company a great deal in unemployment costs.  My organization relies heavily on the attorneys at Burr & Forman to provide legal advice as it relates to our strategic initiatives and to decrease our liability as an employer.”

    -Catherine Houston, Director of Human Resources, CLP Corporation

  • "I have known Peter and his family for twenty years personally and professionally.  He has always provided sound and efficient legal counsel and has always kept the financial interests of my business in mind when resolving our legal issues."
