MONTGOMERY, ALA. (March 14, 2011) – Chris Glover, Shareholder with Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., was elected President of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association (STLA) at the organization’s 23rd Annual Conference, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, March 3-6.

“I am extremely honored to serve as President of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association,” Glover said. “I truly love being a member of STLA. I enjoy STLA as much as anything I do because I’ve created so many lasting friendships through my membership. It is humbling to be asked to lead such an accomplished group of lawyers.”
Membership in the STLA is by nomination made by a member of the Board of Directors, with approval by other Board members from the nominee’s state and, thus, consists of some of the “best of the best” throughout the south.

He has litigated numerous cases that have resulted in verdicts or settlements in excess of one million dollars.
