About LaBarron

LaBarron joined Beasley Allen Law Firm in 1995 and has been instrumental in presenting product liability, consumer fraud and personal injury cases. As a Beasley Allen attorney for more than 20 years, he has handled an array of cases involving crashworthiness, seatbelt restraint failures, accidental airbag deployments, tractor rollovers, tire tread separation (Ford/Firestone) and consumer and insurance fraud.

Notable Cases

As the lead attorney, LaBarron’s most recent notable verdict is a Georgia jury finding in favor of the family of Alfred Holt, who was killed after a Michelin Pilot tire failed on the recreational vehicle he was driving and the RV crashed into a tree. The case was brought against Southland Motor Home Center, which provided maintenance and service on the RV and had refused to take any responsibility for his death.

Earlier this year, LaBarron was the lead attorney in an award of $16.8 million over a defective cab guard. The jury found the cab guard failed to protect a log truck driver from being killed by logs that broke through the truck’s cab when the load shifted. “Truck drivers face many hazards on the road every day, from weather to unexpected traffic and unpredictable other drivers. One thing they should be able to count on is that the vehicle they’re driving is designed so that they have a reasonable expectation of being safe in the event of a crash,” Boone said in a recent interview. “In this instance, the manufacturers failed Mr. Albritton (Larry Albritton), and it cost him his life. It is our hope that this verdict will send a message to these and other companies that ensuring their drivers’ and the public’s safety is more important than their bottom line.”

While working in the firm’s Consumer Fraud Section, LaBarron worked on Merriweather v. Whirlpool, a case addressing a notable door-to-door sales and finance scam that resulted in a $581 million verdict. The verdict is the largest predatory lending verdict in American history. As a result of this litigation, the defendant finance company left the state of Alabama. LaBarron was also one of the attorneys to work on personal injury suit, Aultman v. Telelect, which involved the electrocution of a bucket truck passenger after a nonconductive part was removed. The jury awarded $116 million in damages.

Awards and Ratings

LaBarron is a Martindale Hubbell AV Preeminent Rated attorney and has been regularly selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America. He was recognized as Beasley Allen Litigator of the Year in 2007 and is especially proud to have been selected as Beasley Allen’s 2016 and 2017 Product Liability Lawyer of the Year.

In 2009, LaBarron was given the Resurrection Catholic Mission’s Truth & Charity Award for his exemplary and extraordinary support of the Mission Center. On September 22, 2005, he was the first recipient of the Hands for Children Award, presented to him at the Children’s Advocacy Center in Montgomery, Alabama.

LaBarron received the 2003 University of Alabama Black Law Student Association Alumni Honoree Award. He also has received the Chairman’s Award of Excellence presented by Montgomery County Democratic Committee.

Professional Associations

In addition to LaBarron’s casework, he has been selected as a member of Beasley Allen’s five-person Executive Board and has been helping lead the opening of the firm’s new law office in Atlanta. He also served on the Alabama State Bar President’s Executive Council from 2013 to 2014 and served as the liaison for its Access to Justice initiative.

Publicity

LaBarron has been highlighted in national magazines and journals throughout his career. For example, he was featured in the December 13, 1999, issue of Jet Magazine. The article profiled Merriweather v. Whirlpool and Aultman v. Terex Telelect. He also has been featured for his work with Johnny Cochran on suits concerning Enron’s leading role in one of America’s largest financial scandals. In addition, he was featured in the April 2000 edition of the Kappa Alpha Psi Journal, in which he discussed the law and how it relates to consumer issues; he was featured as well in The Urban Metro June 2000 issue titled, “Lawyer Make Big Strides in Alabama’s, America’s Legal Community.”

His national reputation in the legal community provides LaBarron with the opportunity to lecture and publish numerous articles for practicing attorneys throughout the country. On April 30, 2006, LaBarron appeared on WSFA TV as a guest on the Law Call program, discussing personal injury law. He also spoke at the Alabama Trial Lawyers Association Summer Seminar, held August 17-19, 2006, on the topic “The Plaintiff’s Perspective of Evaluating and Preparing a Winning Case.” He appeared as a guest speaker for the National Bar Association Annual 2003 Judge’s Conference held at Paradise Island, Bahamas, speaking on topics of medical fraud, nursing home litigation and mass torts. He was also a guest lecturer at the 2003 Alabama Lawyers Association Annual Banquet and CLE program on “Use of Computer Technology in the Court Room.” Most recently, LaBarron was a featured speaker at the Attorneys Information Exchange Group’s 2017 Conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

LaBarron also used to host a weekly radio show called The Law & You on WVAS 90.7 FM for a number of years. The program aired each Tuesday at 6 p.m. and LaBarron and his guests took calls from listeners, answered questions and addressed a variety of legal issues.

Community Involvement

He is involved in many community and social activities, such as serving on the Cleveland Avenue YMCA Board of Management, Resurrection Catholic Church Board of Trustees, Child Protect Board of Trustees, the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Foundation, and serving on the board of Medical Outreach Ministries (MOM). LaBarron also serves on the Central Alabama Community Foundation Board of Trustees (CACF), one of the largest charitable foundations in the state of Alabama with assets exceeding $27 million. He was also selected to serve on the Alabama State University 2011 and 2013 Presidential Search Committees.

LaBarron is married to the former Lori David and has two children, Micah and Logan. They are members of Resurrection Catholic Church.

Lawyers and staff continue to help me

I suffered from an allergic reaction to a common medication causing permanent injury when I was 15 years old. My settlement allows me to take care of myself instead of being on disability. Even after my case was over, the lawyers and staff continue to help me.
