Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. lawyer Graham Esdale was recently named President of the Alabama Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). Esdale was elected at the Virtual Board Meeting in October.
ABOTA is a national association of seasoned trial lawyers and judges. Members are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. ABOTA membership consists of more than 7,600 lawyers – equally balanced between plaintiff and defense – and judges spread among 96 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. For information on the work members of ABOTA visit abota.org.
“Over the years the work we have done with ABOTA has made a difference in the lives of American citizens because of the continuous fight for protection of the right to trial by jury,” Graham said. “I am proud to serve as President this year and look forward to working with members and our leadership to provide justice for all who seek it.” Graham said the Alabama chapter also is working on some in-state initiatives focused on civics education for local schools as well as “Civility Matters” presentations for attorneys and judges.
Personal Injury Lawyers
Graham Esdale is an experienced personal injury lawyer in the firm’s Personal Injury and Products Liability Section. He has worked on many notable cases, including a $114.5 million verdict against a bucket truck manufacturer and a $3 million verdict against Alabama Power Company involving an electrical accident. Graham was also a leader in the investigation of claims of personal injury and death related to Toyota Sudden Unintended Acceleration (SUA).
Graham and the other lawyers who handle personal injury lawsuits for our firm understand that they are often meeting people at one of the worst times in their lives. Their peace and security has been uprooted by a catastrophic injury or death, through no wrongful conduct of their own. We work tirelessly to secure justice on their behalf, holding wrongdoers accountable. While no amount of money can restore a person to health or bring back a loved one, we hope our work can provide peace of mind and security for the families affected by devastating circumstances. A victory in the courtroom also holds bad actors accountable and give them reason to strive to put the needs of people ahead of profits to prevent future tragedy.
