Tom Methvin, a native of Eufaula, Alabama, graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Corporate Finance in 1985. He then earned his law degree from Cumberland School of Law in 1988. Tom’s family has been involved in the practice of law in Alabama for over two hundred years. Tom, who says he always wanted to be a lawyer, began his legal career at Beasley Allen in 1988 representing victims of consumer fraud. In 1998, Tom became Managing Shareholder of the firm and continues to hold that position.
Tom has been a very active member of the Alabama State Bar, serving on the Board of Bar Commissioners for nine years, the Executive Council for two years, and serving as Vice President of our Bar in 2005. Tom will be installed as President-Elect at the July 2008 Annual Meeting of the Alabama State Bar Association, and will assume the office of President of the Alabama State Bar in July of 2009.
Tom is a Fellow in the Alabama Law Foundation and a charter member of the Atticus Finch Society. He is also President of the Montgomery Cumberland Law School Club. He serves on the Finance Committee for the Access to Justice Commission, which was formed by the Chief Justice to find new ways to provide access to justice for the poor in Alabama. Tom is a former President of the Montgomery County Bar Association, former President of the Montgomery County Trial Lawyers Association, and serves on the Executive Committee of the Alabama Association for Justice.
Tom currently serves on the Boards of the following charitable organizations: Let God Arise Ministries, a prison ministry; Brantwood Children’s Home, a home for abused and neglected children; the Center for Progress and Opportunity, which explores ways to expand opportunity for all underprivileged Americans; and the Cystic Fibrosis Advisory Panel, which helps fight the terrible disease of CF.
Tom, who became a born again Christian in September of 1996, currently attends Pike Road Baptist Church. Tom says this decision really made a difference in his life, as well as in the lives of his family members. He knows that we must give God the glory for everything that happens in our life and that we must trust in him completely. Tom recently shared his testimony with a group of several hundred lawyers at our firm retreat prayer breakfast. That was an inspiration for others to do the same. In his free time, Tom spends time with his wife and two sons, either doing lake activities or hunting. It is hard to believe that Tom has been with the firm for 20 years.
