Founded in 1959, Byrd Davis Furman & Alden, LLP enjoys a strong reputation for high quality legal representation. We specialize in serious and complex personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and business litigation cases.

Byrd Davis Furman & Alden traces its roots to Tony Byrd, who founded our law firm with the goal of representing injured clients. Mr. Byrd believed that the clients’ best interests could be served by taking their cases before a jury of their peers where they could be fully compensated for the injuries sustained.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s when only a few national firms had the competency to handle product liability, aviation and complex medical litigation, our firm stood at the forefront of developing personal injury law. In the course of our history, our attorneys have successfully represented injured plaintiffs against almost every major manufacturer in the United States, foreign corporations and nearly all the major aircraft and helicopter manufacturers in the world. The firm has obtained recoveries for victims of government, local public entities, hospitals and drug manufacturers’ wrongdoing.

Beginning in the 1990s, Byrd Davis Furman & Alden expanded its practice into commercial litigation, representing clients in breach of contract actions in various contexts. We served as class counsel in oil royalty litigation against the eight largest unified petroleum producing companies and recovered over $19 million on behalf of our clients. Since then, we have continued to expand our practice into business disputes over breach of contract, fraud and misrepresentation, partnership and fiduciary liability, real estate disputes, and class actions.

Today Byrd Davis Furman & Alden carries on our founder’s goals. Throughout our history we have remained dedicated to serving our clients with honesty, integrity and excellence in legal services.

After more than half a century, we remain among the top trial firms in the United States. Our lawyers continue to be recognized as speakers, faculty members and leaders in professional organizations. Our skills continually develop, our technology is cutting edge, and our research and investigation skills are unmatched for successfully pursuing recoveries for our clients.
