2014 ba lawyers of the year plo beb 250x140 Beasley Allen recognizes Litigators of the Year, Lawyers of the Year 2014Each year, it is a unique pleasure to recognize lawyers in our firm who have done an exceptional job for their clients and for the firm, not only in the past year but throughout their career. Beasley Allen Litigators of the Year for 2014 are Leigh O’Dell and Ben Baker. The Litigator of the Year award is presented to the attorney or attorneys in the instance who demonstrate exceptional professional skill throughout the course of the year and best represent the firm’s ideal of “helping those who need it most.” Leigh and Ben have done especially well during the past year, and we are most appreciative of their dedication and hard work.

Beasley Allen also selected Lawyers of the Year in each section. Those lawyers selected were Kendall Dunson, Personal Injury Section Lawyer of the Year; Graham Esdale, Products Liability Section Lawyer of the Year; Alison Hawthorne, Fraud Section Lawyer of the Year; Navan Ward, Mass Torts Section Lawyer of the Year; and Parker Miller, Toxic Torts Section Lawyer of the Year.

In addition to these annual awards, this year it was our particular honor to establish a new award, the Chad Stewart Award. This honor was created in memory of Beasley Allen lawyer Chad Stewart, who passed away unexpectedly in April at the very young age of 41. In addition to being a dedicated lawyer who worked hard for his clients, Chad truly modeled Jesus Christ in his daily walk. The Chad Stewart Award was created to recognize a lawyer who best exemplified Chad’s spirit of service to God, his family and the practice of law in the task of “helping those who need it most.” We were proud to present the 2014 Chad Stewart Award to Gibson Vance.

Each of the lawyers recognized this year has done an excellent job and we are very thankful for them and for their efforts. Congratulations to all of these lawyers for a job well done. Their hard work and dedication to their clients is greatly appreciated.

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.
