They're very responsive and look at matters from various viewpoints to find the best possible resolution. They offer effective, timely representation.

The team was consistently responsive and thoughtful in its responses while also not driving up billable hours.

It is a great team with broad knowledge and capabilities to handle different types of work.

They're very strong in complex and sophisticated matters.

I have an excellent working relationship with them. They are responsive, timely and detail-oriented, which is critically important in this process to ensure our documentation is accurate. Their support is critical.

They have learned what we want from a law firm and deliver it.

They are excellent in all regards.

They provide very efficient and effective representation.

They have a really strong younger bench.

Baker Donelson has made a conscious effort to bring younger people up, to involve them in work and bring them to meetings.

In my opinion, they have the most expertise in trust and estates in the Southeast.

They can answer any kind of estate planning or tax question out there. They have a deep team in Jackson.

They know what they are doing. They come up with strategies to accomplish goals creatively and they communicate them very well to clients that do not have expertise in taxation, probate or estate matters.

Their knowledge of estate planning and tax issues are particular strengths, as is their willingness to champion a particular strategy and go the extra mile to convince the client of its merits.

The team is excellent there. They are very knowledgeable in all areas of wealth management and multi-generational planning.

Invested is what I like to call them. There are law firms that work for you and do a good job, but with Baker Donelson they take it personally if the bank loses – as personally as I do. And that is a good thing.
