TESTIMONIALS

    -Best Lawyers 2012

  • "Rik Tozzi attracts praise for his trial skills.  He has been involved in a number of consumer cases, such as acting . . . in a matter brought by the City of Birmingham against various mortgage companies seeking damages for alleged violations of the federal Fair Housing Act."

    -Chambers 2010

  • “It is my pleasure to recommend Howard and the healthcare team at Burr & Forman.  From issues related to medical staff bylaws, through numerous regulatory compliance and certificate-of-need applications, to the successful resolution of the largest Medicare recoupment effort against a private medical practice; Howard has always been a knowledgeable counselor, keen advisor and staunch advocate for the hospitals and medical practices I have managed. 

    Howard’s record of accomplishment is broad and impressive.  He is quick to respond when called.  His advocacy style is reassuring as he blends superior organizational skills, subject matter expertise and a willingness to listen and grasp the full understanding of his client’s needs and objectives.  

    This recommendation is made without reservation because for nineteen years, when my own reputation was at stake, I have introduced Howard to the organizations I manage.  In every case, the organization has benefitted greatly as he has managed to achieve the best outcomes possible.”

  • “They have a wonderful real estate practice. I think they are as good as anyone in the South. They are technically excellent at what they do. The deals get done with these guys. They have a well-rounded group. Anybody we have ever referred to them has been very happy and satisfied.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “Larry’s knowledge of the bankruptcy code is as good as I’ve seen in my years working with Chapter 11 cases and financially distressed companies. He also brings a practical side in resolving issues with various creditor groups. This ability to address various groups the strong and weak points in a non-confrontational manner avoids undue delay and costly litigation in many cases. However, when confrontation is unavoidable, Larry is quite the fine trial lawyer as well.”
