TESTIMONIALS

  • "...He has a big influence on automotive and economic development.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “This firm is one, if not the top firm in the Southeast. I steer all my work to Burr & Forman exclusively. I have used other attorneys on deals where conflicts may arise and those are good firms, but I still go back to Burr time and again.”

    - Chambers 2012

  • “She is efficient, practical, no-nonsense and smart."

    -Chambers 2013

  • “He is a great real estate lawyer. He is practical as opposed to a theorist. He has common sense and is a problem-solving real estate attorney. His demeanor is very calm – he doesn’t overreact and thinks through the issue before he starts talking about it. He is calm, steady and persistent. I have recommended him to others and they have used him too. He is a prize, the kind of attorney you want – not throw his weight around, not center of attention, calmly deal with, keep it low key and move it forward. He evaluates things and possible compromises. He just gets what you need done. I don’t know all real estate lawyers but I know a lot of them, he is as good as any of them.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “They are all excellent attorneys; exceptionally bright, decisive and creative."

    -Chambers 2012
