    TESTIMONIALS

    • "Burr & Forman provides outstanding representation in all areas."

      -Best Lawyers 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

    • “Robert Rutherford, David Elliott and John Chiles have all done this kind of work over the years. They are all very good lawyers and do a very good job."

      -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 is a strong firm with a very good balanced approach. They produce results consistent with company philosophy."
