Beasley Allen will open an office in Atlanta. Since 1979, our law firm has had one location. Although we work with lawyers from all over the country, and in courtrooms throughout the U.S., our offices have always been in Alabama’s Capital City. We are excited about expanding our reach to handle more cases in the state of Georgia and especially in Atlanta. This office is scheduled to open no later than January 2017.
We are glad to be partnering with noted Atlanta attorney Lance Cooper, who handles product liability cases. Lance actually uncovered the General Motors ignition switch scandal through his great work in the Melton case. You will recall, this case started the massive recall of GM vehicles, which has saved countless lives. Lance is a former president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers and is very well respected in the Atlanta area, Georgia, and throughout the nation. He will be a Principal in our firm and will also maintain his own practice.
We are also grateful that our longtime Principal, Chris Glover, will be moving to Atlanta to run this office. Chris is an experienced attorney, particularly in the area of trucking accidents. He recently wrote a book on the subject, An Introduction to Truck Accident Claims: A Guide to Getting Started, which is available free to lawyers. Likewise, longtime Principals LaBarron Boone and Gibson Vance will be heavily involved in the Atlanta office. Both LaBarron and Gibson are members of Beasley Allen’s Executive Board.
We will be handling primarily products liability cases and truck accident cases, which include:
- Auto crashworthiness;
- Single vehicle accidents;
- Defective consumer products;
- Defective tires;
- Heavy truck rollovers (normally where a truck driver is injured);
- Cab guard cases (where loads shift in vehicles and injure the driver);
- On-the-job products liability cases;
- Honda airbags / Takata airbags.
We will also be handling cases in our normal practice areas, which you can find on our home page in the “About Us” section.
We look forward to working with you should the need arise in the Atlanta area or in the state of Georgia. Please contact Chris Glover at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 800-898-2034 to discuss any cases of interest or to get more information.
