David Byrne, a lawyer in our firm’s Toxic Torts Section, has been very busy lately and that’s actually a gross understatement. He and several other lawyers in the Section are now hard at work on issues relating to the Gulf oil spill. Prior to that time, David had been heavily involved in the firm’s TVA litigation, which will continue. David’s areas of practice have included complex environmental litigation, consumer fraud litigation, business litigation, personal injury litigation, and state and federal criminal litigation.
Currently, David’s work is focused on commercial and environmental litigation in both federal and state courts throughout the United States. He is listed in the Best Lawyers Consumer Guide under the Personal Injury Law and Criminal Defense practice sections. David has assisted clients in obtaining multi-million dollar settlements or verdicts in cases involving the following: environmental contamination, food-product franchises, Federal Tort Claims Act, accounting malpractice, motor vehicle franchise disputes, consumer fraud Class Actions, the funeral services industry, premises liability, insurance agent contract disputes and defective products.
In 2003, David was involved in the largest toxic tort settlement in U.S. history. Estimated at $700 million, the settlement for PCB contamination in Anniston, Alabama, involving Solutia, Monsanto and Pharmacia, doubled the previous mark popularized by the movie Erin Brockovich. At present, his main areas of work will be in the TVA and BP oil spill litigation.
David has been married to Betty Bobbitt for thirteen years, and they have two children. The family attends Young Meadows Presbyterian Church in Montgomery, where David serves as a deacon. David has also served as the president of the Montgomery County Trial Lawyers Association and as a member of the Board of Governors for the Alabama Association of Justice. We are blessed to have David with the firm. He is a hard worker who is totally dedicated to serving his clients. Not only is David a tremendous lawyer, he is a good man.
