Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., hosted its tenth annual Legal Conference & Expo at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center on Thursday, Nov. 17, and Friday, Nov. 18. The event provides continuing legal education (CLE) credits and is open to all Alabama lawyers in private practice. The conference has grown steadily each year, from about 400 lawyers in 2007 to close to 1,400 in attendance this year. It is one of the top five legal conferences in the United States.

“The Beasley Allen Law Firm has successfully coordinated a unique conference for the last ten years, and I applaud their efforts,” said Dawn Hathcock, Vice President of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitor Bureau. “Lawyers from all over the state have been given the opportunity to see everything Montgomery has to offer as a destination but that is just the beginning. Hosting nearly 1,600 attendees at the state’s largest legal conference provides a huge economic impact in the River Region estimated to be roughly a million dollars.”

Practice areas addressed at the conference included Product Liability, Business Litigation, Consumer Fraud, Medical Device and Drug litigation, as well as a section on Legal Ethics. Special programs include a presentation by Beasley Allen Principal & Founder Jere Beasley on the importance of trial lawyers in the judicial system; a panel discussion with Alabama Supreme Court Justices James Allen Main and Tommy Bryan; and remarks from Ken Riley, President of the Alabama Association for Justice; Cole Portis, President of the Alabama State Bar; Clay Hornsby, Deputy Director of the Alabama Law Institute; Shane Smith, Chairperson, Family Law Section of the Alabama State Bar; Allen Estes, President, Alabama Defense Lawyers Association; and Tony McLain, General Counsel, Alabama State Bar.

At the Legal Conference Expo, vendors provided demonstrations of products and answered questions about how attorneys can best enhance their practice. Event platinum sponsors for 2016 were Jackson Thornton Valuation & Litigation Consulting Group, Freedom Reporting and Virage. Legal and community groups also participated in the event to provide information about their programs and services to participants. This year included the Alabama State Bar Volunteer Lawyer Program, Alabama State Bar Lawyer Referral Program, Alabama Law Foundation, Alabama Civil Justice Foundation, Alabama Association for Justice as well as Cumberland School of Law.

“The Beasley Allen Legal Conference is a great way for our attorneys to meet peers from across the state and develop relationships to expand their understanding of the field,” said Beasley Allen Principal & Managing Attorney Tom Methvin. “This is a unique opportunity for lawyers and we are honored to be able to offer this event for Alabama attorneys.”
