Beasley Allen announced Chris Glover as the firm’s Litigator of the Year for 2018. The annual recognition is presented to the attorney who demonstrates exceptional professional skill throughout the course of the year and best represents the firm’s ideal of “helping those who need it most.” Glover is the Managing Attorney in the Atlanta office in addition to his practice in the firm’s Personal Injury and Products Liability Section. He handles complex product liability cases involving serious injury or death and has handled several cases against manufacturers of light and heavy trucks and automobiles. Glover’s work opening and managing the Atlanta office has led to tremendous growth over just a few short years.
In addition to selecting the firm’s Litigator of the Year, Beasley Allen recognized excellence in its four sections, naming the Lawyer of the Year in each. Honorees for 2018 are:
- Stephanie Monplaisir, Personal Injury and Products Liability Section Lawyer of the Year;
- Andrew Brashier, Consumer Fraud and Commercial Litigation Section Lawyer of the Year;

“As we prepare to celebrate 40 years of helping those who need it most, I reflect on the difference our lawyers have made in so many lives. I am blessed to work with each of these outstanding professionals who have committed their working lives to taking good care of our clients,” firm founder Jere Beasley said. “These outstanding lawyers know the value of hard work. We are truly blessed to have them here at the firm and these recognitions are well-deserved.”
In addition to the professional awards given each year, the Board of Directors elects to recognize an attorney each year in memory of Beasley Allen lawyer Chad Stewart, who passed away in 2014. The Chad Stewart Award was created to recognize the lawyer who best exemplifies Chad’s spirit of service to God, his family and the practice of law in the task of “helping those who need it most.” The 2018 Chad Stewart Award was presented to Tom Methvin, the Managing Attorney for the firm. Many know Tom for his generosity and community involvement across our city and state.
