Jere Beasley discusses his law firm’s recent anniversary and landmark cases

On the 35th anniversary of Beasley Allen law firm, Beasley Allen Report host Gibson Vance welcomes Founding Shareholder and former Lieutenant Governor Jere Beasley to the show. When the firm first began, Mr. Beasley remembers that there was only one lawyer, himself, one secretary and one legal assistant. He also says that he has found the secret to the firm’s success to be putting the client’s interests first and focusing on ensuring the client leaves in a better condition than when they arrived. He recalls one of the most memorable cases that helped shape the firm’s reputation, involving a tractor rollover. Durwood Spivey, a 67-year-old retired farmer, was crushed and killed when his Kubota tractor overturned during use. Despite technology being available to prevent the incident from occurring, the tractor was not equipped with any rollover protection features. The Spivey family eventually settled their lawsuit against the Kubota defendants after four days of trial for $10,000,000 due to the horrific testimony that was presented to the jury.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
