Tom Edwards has qualified to run for the Alabama Supreme Court, challenging incumbent Mike Bolen. Tom, a sole practitioner, is a very good lawyer. While he doesn’t represent any of the elite in Corporate America, Tom does a very good job of representing ordinary folks. Known as a tenacious yet highly-professional lawyer, Tom is highly regarded by his peers and by folks in his community. Tom lives in Elmore County, but has his law office in Montgomery.
Tom is a graduate of Auburn University Montgomery and Jones School of Law. He also holds a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif. From 1987 through 1992, Tom preached the Gospel and he remains active in the United Methodist Church. He and I attend the same church, St. James United Methodist Church, and for that reason I know about his commitment. At one stage in his professional career, Tom served as an aide to then-U.S. Senator Howell Heflin. Tom has also served as President of the Alabama Trial Lawyers Association.
Tom says he is running to restore integrity, balance and impartiality to the Supreme Court. Tom firmly believes the Wall Street corporate stacking of the High Court flies in the face of the fundamental beliefs of Alabamians in God, Country and Freedom. Tom wants to put a stop to what he views as a dangerous trend of judicial activism on the Court, which he says has put profits of large corporations far above the rights of ordinary people. He believes it’s time for a fresh start in Alabama and that regular folks should at least have a chance when their cases are heard in the Supreme Court.
I have known Tom Edwards for a number of years and know first hand that he is highly qualified. Tom will make an outstanding member of the Alabama Supreme Court. I plan on voting for Tom and supporting his candidacy. If real issues are discussed and out-of-state corporate money is kept out of the campaign, Tom can win!
