My husband and I got married three years ago and I was blessed with not only loving him, but getting to love his two children. After 2 years I finally had the chance to adopt these beautiful children and I am so glad that we chose Burt Hunter to take our case. We had many obstacles during our 60 days waiting for our Adoption hearing and he took on those obstacles and challenges and made sure that we got what we deserved all along. I can not thank him and his staff for everything they did for us. We will forever celebrate our "Gotcha Day" as my youngest calls it. Thank you, Burt, Letetia and everyone else that helped with our case! You all are like family and will always be my first choice for anything we need!

After I had a fire in my house I hired J. Burton Hunter to represent me against the insurance Co. With his help I was able to get a fair and equitable settlement. He even consulted with his advisor to help me.

We are very satisfied with the outcome of our association with Mr. Hunter's law firm. His staff was always accessible, extremely informed, professional and very courteous. We would not hesitate to obtain their services in the future and would recommend them to others in need of a competent law firm.

I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Hunter is a kind and compassionate lawyer. He always thinks about long term ramifications for his clients and is concerned with not only improving his clients' current legal position but their overall quality if life.
