In the 2011 Issue of Alabama Super Lawyers

ALSLRS11_SMCover.jpgIn the latest issue of Alabama Super Lawyers (available online, digitally, via app, and in magazine form), our cover story is about Mike Atchison of Birmingham's Burr & Forman. Atchison, who has been practicing law for 40 years, started working as a reporter, covering issues involving the Ku Klux Klan and experiencing sermons by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., before attending law school. Over his career, Atchison learned the important lessons of treating everyone with respect and always doing the right thing. Says his Burr & Forman colleague Ed Hardin, "If there ever was a true gentleman, it's Mike Atchison. In spite of the personal consequences or obstacles or risk of personal ridicule or social pressures, Mike always does what is right under the circumstances."
