Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
Atlanta-based law firm Bovis, Kyle & Burch, LLC has changed its name to Bovis, Kyle, Burch & Medlin, LLC to reflect the strategic growth of the firm and expansion of their Forsyth County office in Cumming, Ga. While the firm’s name is changing to reflect its expanding family law practice under the leadership of Charles Medlin, their commitment to representing clients in litigation, corporate, labor and employment, worker’s compensation, insurance, surety fidelity, self-insured and construction law matters endures. Along with the firm’s expanded Cumming office and name change, Adam C. Grafton has been elevated to partner in the firm’s worker’s compensation practice group as of Jan. 1, 2013.
“The addition of Charles Medlin’s name to that of our law practice has been made in recognition of his significant contributions to the firm and growth of our family law practice” said Steven J. Kyle, co-founder of Bovis, Kyle, Burch & Medlin, LLC. “The opening of our office in Cumming, Ga. was a direct result of client feedback and growing business in the area over the past 10 years. We anticipate additional growth in that office as we continue to expand our service offerings there, including our labor and employment, fidelity and insurance practices.”
