Paul Evans joined Beasley Allen Law Firm as Of Counsel in our Consumer Fraud Section in October 2017 and is now an Associate with the section. He handles class actions, antitrust issues, whistleblower claims and Medicaid fraud litigation.
Currently, Paul’s practice is focused on class action litigation filed on behalf of life insurance policyholders who have experienced unfounded premium increases. The lawsuits filed by Beasley Allen allege that these increases are implemented ultimately to benefit shareholders and rid the insurance companies of near-term liabilities they have accrued due to wrongful use of captive reinsurance companies.
Paul is a member of the Alabama State Bar, the Alabama State Bar Young Lawyers Section, the Montgomery County Bar Association and the Middle District of Alabama’s Pro Se Litigant Assistance Program. He is also a member of the American Association for Justice, Emerging Leaders for Alabama Association for Justice and Taxpayers Against Fraud.

While at Troy, Paul was elected by the student body as Vice President of the Student Government Association in addition to serving as Vice President of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. He then earned his J.D. from Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law three years later, graduating magna cum laude.
