Firm History and Philosophy

Bovis, Kyle, Burch & Medlin, LLC was founded over 50 years ago, when John Bovis joined the firm’s predecessor started by federal Senior Judge William C. O’Kelley.  Encouraged by our clients’ needs, the firm has grown to include attorneys dedicated to a wide variety of practice areas. In 2008, that growth spurred the firm’s move to a larger main office that includes state-of-the-art mediation space and advanced technology, helping us to better serve our clients’ needs.

Bovis, Kyle, Burch & Medlin, LLC is a multi-practice firm with its main office located in the growing Perimeter Center area, north of downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Additionally, the firm has offices located in Cumming, Georgia, and Greensboro, North Carolina.
