PLEASE NOTE: DATE AND TIME HAS CHANGED – Beasley Allen shareholder Rhon Jones will be the featured presenter at a seminar for Montgomery area attorneys that will discuss the BP Oil Spill settlement. The seminar is scheduled for Thursday, August 30, from 1 p.m.-2 p.m., and is sponsored by the Montgomery County Bar Association. Jones will explain the claims process, which will allow any business in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and parts of Florida to file for compensation as a result of the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The seminar is called “BP Settlement: You and your clients may have a claim,” and is open to all Montgomery area lawyers. You do not have to be a member of MCBA to attend. Lawyers will earn one hour of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for attending. The seminar will be held in the Jury Assembly Room on the third floor of the Montgomery County Courthouse.

“One thing most lawyers don’t know is that any business in any part of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, or the west coast of Florida all the way to Key West can qualify for compensation,” Jones said.

Generally speaking, any private business in one of the areas mentioned above that had an aggregate revenue decrease of 15 percent or more over a consecutive three-month time period between May and December 2010, and had at least a 10 percent aggregate revenue increase for the same three months in 2011 is entitled to compensation. This is true even if they do not think their loss came from the oil spill.

Attendance is free of charge, although pre-registration is recommended. To register, contact Dot Robinson at dotrobinson@mc-ala.org or 334-265-4793.
