Jere L. Beasley, Principal & Founder of Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Ports & Miles, P.C., has been named to the Lawdragon Hall of Fame. He is among 45 top lawyers in the nation who were selected for this honor. The Lawdragon Hall of Fame “celebrates lawyers whose mark on the legal profession is indelible.”
“It is quite an honor to be recognized in this manner, realizing there are hundreds of lawyers who are more deserving,” Jere said. “God has blessed me, and I have tried my best as a lawyer to bless others. I am proud and also humbled to be a trial lawyer.”
Jere established a one-lawyer firm that officially opened on Jan. 15, 1979, and he filed his first case on behalf of the practice on Jan. 17, 1979. Today, Beasley Allen is one of the country’s leading firms involved in civil litigation on behalf of claimants, having represented hundreds of thousands of people. In January, the firm opened an office in Atlanta, Georgia, its first expansion outside of its home headquarters in Montgomery, Alabama.
The driving force behind Jere’s success has been his intense commitment to his clients. He is, without a doubt, one of the leading trial lawyers in the entire country and a leading advocate for those who have been wronged. Cases he has handled have prompted a major automobile manufacturer to recall its unsafe vehicles, while another made a major tractor manufacturer put rollover protection on all of its tractors. Still another prompted a major insurance company to seek out thousands of its policyholders who had been wronged in an effort to correct their policies.
