TESTIMONIALS

  • “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

  • “Tully Hazell has a keen business sense and understands how to talk with the commercial side of our business in a way that is understandable and not too laden with legalese. Tully has a strong knowledge of both our business and our industry which enables him to provide relevant responses to our questions. We also appreciate that we can always rely on Tully to provide timely responses to our requests.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “I have found the ERISA group, and especially Logan Hinkle, to be knowledgeable and very responsive as we navigate the changes in HIPAA, PPA and more recently PPACA to make sure we are in compliance and our documentation in order.  I can recommend them highly.”
