Jere Beasley shares stories of life, career on Beasley Allen Report

Beasley Allen Founding Shareholder Jere L. Beasley visits the Beasley Allen Report to discuss his life and career. Beasley founded the firm that would become Beasley Allen in 1979, operating under the motto “Helping those who need it most.” Beasley earned his law degree and passed the Bar exam 50 years ago. He was recently honored by the Alabama State Bar and the Montgomery County Bar Association for this milestone. Beasley practiced as a defense lawyer upon graduation from law school, and says he decided when he returned to the practice of law that he’d prefer to represent the victims of wrongdoing as a plaintiff’s lawyer. But first, he was interested in politics. He ran for office and was elected the youngest Lieutenant Governor of the State of Alabama in 1970, serving with Governor George Wallace. He was acting governor of Alabama from June 5 to July 7, 1972, after Wallace was shot while campaigning for the office of President of the United States. Beasley was re-elected to the office of Lt. Gov. in 1974. He ran for Governor in 1978, but was defeated and began his private practice the next year. Beasley talks with show host Gibson Vance about some of his most notable cases during his career, as well as ongoing litigation the firm is handling, including Medicaid Fraud, the BP Oil Spill, and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

Impressed with the Beasley Allen staff

I am very impressed with the Beasley Allen staff. They were very courteous and patiently explained the aspects of my claim in a way I could understand. If I ever have any need of an attorney in the future I will turn to Beasley Allen.
