Burke Blue Law Firm opens at Grand Boulevard
Burke Blue Hutchison Walters & Smith, a law firm serving Northwest Florida with over 300 years of combined experience, has recently moved to a new office within Grand Boulevard’s Suburban Office Park. With expertise at three local offices, Burke Blue provides clients with specialized knowledge, experienced counsel and advocacy in over 25 areas of law, including real estate law, general civil litigation, closing services and estate planning.
“Burke Blue has represented Howard Group since 1991 and has had an office in Grand Boulevard for the past 11 years. The fact that one of our original office tenants has chosen to continue with us after a decade reaffirms how much our office community and Town Center has evolved and flourished,” stated Merlin Allan, Vice President of Real Estate for Howard Group.
Upon the decision in 2000 to reinforce the firm’s presence in the Destin area, Burke Blue identified Grand Boulevard as a central location in Northwest Florida, which is their main service area. Over the past decade, the law firm thrived and in July 2011, moved to a different office within the Suburban Office Park that offers an inviting, customized space for its associates and clients.
“Our close proximity to the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, as well as the growing Grand Boulevard business community, has enabled us to cultivate important relationships that have contributed to our success,” stated Todd Burke, partner and one of Burke Blue’s 15 attorneys. “Our staff and clients continue to enjoy the convenience of easily accessing a variety of key, businesses, services and great restaurants within walking distance.”
Todd Burke’s father, Les Burke, and his partner Rob Blue founded the law firm that has a nearly 40-year proven track record for providing legal counsel and representation to a wide variety of business and individual clients all across Northwest Florida. The firm and its partners have excelled on a journey of success, which includes pioneering the region’s condominium law, serving as county attorneys for Bay and Walton counties and a significant, recent appointment as the liaison for the entire state of Florida to Kenneth Feinberg, government-appointed administrator of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility funded by BP.
“We’ve lived here our entire lives and have been entrenched in our community, allowing us to relate with our clients and provide an unparalleled depth of knowledge and expertise into law and our communities,” stated Burke. “Our bench strengths are our longevity, resources and people.”
Burke Blue’s new office is conveniently located directly across from Regions Bank in Grand Boulevard. Burke Blue also has offices in downtown Panama City, next to the Bay County Courthouse and Panama City Beach, next to Pier Park.
