If you are seeking a top gun attorney, Scott Weber is it. I was sued by a family member who claimed that I had mismanaged several family trusts. Scott's superb knowledge of the law and the rules of court, along with his continued persistence, won my case. The court ultimately: (1) granted a summary judgment in its entirety in my favor, (2) gave me a full release as Trustee, (3) approved all of my trust accountings, (4) awarded declaratory judgment to me for attorneys’ fees and expenses, and (5) dismissed all of the plaintiff’s claims. Scott Weber and his entire firm are all winners in my book.
Scott did an absolutely fantastic job on the Trust case. There is no doubt that his timely obtained summary judgment gave us the hammer we needed to get the plaintiff out of our mutual clients' lives.

Brandy is an exceptional attorney. She was very sensitive to our families needs in probating our father's Will. She was very thorough and kind in handling the estate - most of our father's estate planning was done in another state and she worked with our other counsel hand in hand to bring it to a close. I found her to be very friendly and personable. I would highly recommend Brandy Baxter-Thompson.

Ms. Baxter Thompson was very easy to schedule with, and so helpful to my daughter and I. My daughter's father had died and she had to handle his estate, a difficult task for a grieving young adult with no experience. Ms. Baxter Thompson was very approachable and helped my daughter understand the process in a very sensitive, efficient, way.
I can't thank you enough for your help and your guidance. Earlier this year I had no idea what to do when mom passed away and I had to have her will probated. I spoke with several people on the phone and asked my friends for referrals. Nothing clicked and I felt even more lost. . . . I finally told the Lord, ok, I give up. Just lead me in the right direction. I pulled up several Probate web sites but stopped at yours. Something just stood out. The picture of all of you on your web site didn't look pretentious or stuffy. Actually, you seemed friendly and approachable. Some of the web sites for other attorneys gave off a snobby type attitude. When people are grieving with a death and having to tend with legal issues there is a lot of confusion and to have someone just to be kind and help you through the steps is a Godsend. That Scott is what you were – a Godsend. You were patient, friendly, kind, explained the process where I could understand and an amazing help – a Godsend.
Thank you Scott!
We worked closely with Scott Weber at CNBW over multiple years in a very complex, high stakes, and emotional dispute. Throughout the process Scott was able to make sure we stayed true to our strategy, never wavered from our ethics, didn't succumb to dirty tricks and tactics, and the net result was a very favorable outcome. Definitely one of the good guys in what can be a very messy process.

I think the smooth, efficient engagement process impressed me the most. We felt like we were in good hands the minute we walked out of the first meeting. That is hugely important to an embattled client. The other factor was the accessibility of the firm, night, day, weekend, whatever. Carol and I never had to stew over responses. We never had to worry about details falling through the cracks. It all added up to a vastly improved state of mind for both of us, as the battles waged.
Another funny thing you may think is not so important, is professional writing skills. The Accountings from CNBW were head and shoulders above those of any professional accounting firm. (I am a stickler in that respect, and I tell my children that every day. How you write and how you speak makes an impression even when you don't know you are making an impression.)
I was represented by Calloway, Norris, Burdette & Weber throughout a multi-year family legal matter following my father's death and I cannot sing the firm's praises highly enough. While I had the pleasure of working with a number of the skilled attorneys and support staff at CNBW, it was the steady guidance and unfailing wisdom of Mary Burdette for which I am the most grateful. While many legal matters bring with them complications beyond initial expectations, I would not have believed the cinematic turn of events through which Mary and the CNBW team were able to guide me and my family. Curveball after curveball came our way, however, Mary not only stayed on top of the ever-changing, high-stakes matters, but she also made complex legal concepts easy to understand while making herself available for questions and consultation night and day. Though I have a deep gratitude for the legal/financial outcome, I am just as grateful for Mary's compassion and her ability to put me at ease despite the truly painful matters at hand. I thank my lucky stars that I was referred to CNBW and that I had the good fortune to work with Mary Burdette in particular.
