Hurley Burish and Stanton, SC Attorneys at law

Hurley, Burish & Stanton – Benchmark Litigation

Hurley Burish & Stanton joins the “highly recommended” rankings in this edition, as many give a nod to its “superb white-collar” practice, among other areas. Established two decades ago by three partners, the firm remains a boutique with 12 accomplished attorneys practicing today. Its corporate clients include businesses small and large in industries as varied as news media, high-tech, and finance. A client raves, “The firm’s client service is outstanding – the lawyers are incredibly responsive, their industry expertise top notch, and their fees reasonable.”

A competitor claims, “[Stephen] Hurley himself is one of the better white-collar defense lawyers in the town.” Hurley has more than 35 years of experience and has seen great success before agencies and state and federal courts. Hurley recently handled an investigation of the FBI and the US Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin into alleged wrongful billing practices of a construction company. The matter was resolved without charging the corporation or any individual through a deferred prosecution agreement. The client was charged with tax evasion. The matter was resolved when the government agreed to dismiss the indictment against the defendant. Future star Marcus Berghahn is called “an adroit white-collar practitioner who achieves astounding results for his clients.”
