MONTGOMERY, ALA. (October 8, 2012) – Jere L. Beasley, Founding Shareholder of the Montgomery, Ala., based law firm of Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., has issued the following statement regarding the death of University of South Alabama college student Gil Collar:

“Our firm has been retained to investigate the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of Gil Collar, a student at the University of South Alabama. The family is leaving all media contacts relating to this matter to us. They have lost an 18-year-old son, are grieving and would like to have their privacy. Hopefully, the officials at the University will cooperate with us during this difficult time for the Collar family. Gil was a freshman at the school and his family had been assured by campus police back in August that a safe haven would be provided for all new students coming to the University. The University should not attempt to defend this incident by releasing information to the media until such time as a complete investigation is done. There are some issues that deal with rules and regulations covering incidents of this sort that must be addressed. When our investigation is completed, a decision will then be made by the family concerning their course of action.”

I never dreamed how much this would mean to me

I received another check today, much to my surprise. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I never dreamed how much this would mean to me in my golden years, as I have had hearing problems for years and needed to update my hearing aids, but with a limited income, found that was impossible. I now have the best hearing aids that I have ever had, thanks to you fighting so hard on my behalf.
