About Clinton

Clinton Richardson is a lawyer in the Mass Torts Section. He is working on the social media and the JUUL litigations, as well as assisting with investigating the viability of other prospective actions. Before joining Beasley Allen, Clinton worked for other law firms, litigating matters in the areas of employment discrimination, federal criminal defense, and 42 USC § 1983 litigation. He also worked for the United States Attorney’s Office in the Northern District of Alabama, where he prosecuted False Claims Act cases, defended against claims premised on the Federal Torts Claims Act and responded to numerous habeas petitions. The persistent intellectual rigor of the legal profession, driven, in part, by the challenge of developing and articulating arguments to address dynamic fact patterns that implicate complex areas of the law, is why Clinton became a lawyer. These things are what he continues to enjoy the most about practicing law. Clinton feels blessed to have joined the Beasley Allen law firm, a firm renowned for its stellar reputation for integrity and legal expertise.


Clinton is an avid fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide and is a member of The Worship Center Christian Church.

Professional Associations

Clinton was a finalist for the 2014 Montgomery Volunteer Lawyers Program Lawyer of the Year Award. In 2017, 2018 and 2023, he was named to the Mid-South Super Lawyers Rising Stars list.


Clinton earned his law degree from Faulkner University Thomas Goode Jones School of Law.
