Jeff Price joined Beasley Allen’s Toxic Torts Section in 2012. He is currently handling opioid litigation, representing the State of Alabama and the State of Georgia as private counsel.
Jeff was recently named by The National Trial Lawyers to the Alabama Top 40 Under 40 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers List, an honor given to only a select group of lawyers for their superior skills and qualifications in the field.
Jeff is a member of the Alabama State Bar and is a former associate editor of The American Journal of Trial Advocacy at Cumberland. He has returned to Montgomery, where he resides and practices law.
Jeff is married to the former Kathleen Crawley of Prattville, Alabama. The couple resides in Prattville and enjoys spending time with their dog, Lilly.
As part of the firm’s opioid litigation team, Jeff is currently assisting local governments in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee in addressing harms posed by the nation’s opioid epidemic.
The team also represents the State of Alabama in its opioid lawsuit against Purdue Pharmaceuticals, Endo Pharmaceuticals, and McKesson Corporation and the State of Georgia in its pending lawsuit against opioid manufacturers and wholesale drug distributors. The opioid lawsuits contend the opioid crisis, which has reached epidemic proportions, was created by the pharmaceutical industry.
Drug companies flooded the health care system with the highly addictive drugs and their deceptive marketing practices misled the public about the drugs’ safety and effectiveness. Responding to the opioid crisis has required local and state governments to sustain economic damages and to continue to bear a significant financial burden.
Jeff also represented individuals, property owners and business owners across the Gulf Coast, helping them recover millions of dollars in compensation for the losses they suffered following the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig and the resulting devastating BP Oil Spill.
