TESTIMONIALS

  • “They are outstanding and get high marks for their commercial awareness, staffing, training and pro-activity."

    -Chambers 2012

  • “Our firm has used Burr & Forman, and particularly Logan Hinkle, for our retirement plan and many employment law issues over the years.  I have always found their entire staff of lawyers, paralegals and assistants to be knowledgeable and just as importantly prompt in their response to our questions or concerns.  They have always kept us abreast of changes in the law and suggest changes that we should make in our employment practices, or our retirement plan, to keep current and compliant.  Our relationship has always been professional but at the same time very cordial and respectful.  Our association with Logan and his partners, associates and colleagues has been outstanding.”

    -John D. Humber, Tuscaloosa Radiology

  • “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.”

    -Rebecca York, Mercantile Bank
