My good friend Bobby Segall, a well respected lawyer with the Copeland Franco Law Firm, was recently honored at the Montgomery County Bar Association’s (MCBA) annual charity fundraiser. A packed house turned out for the roast of Bobby. Highlights from the night included an impersonation of Bobby by Virgil Ford – Judge Truman Hobbs’ not-so-subtle jabs at his former partner – and Joe Espy’s gifts from various witnesses who had the misfortune of being cross-examined in a courtroom by Bobby.
Bobby, a native of Montgomery, graduated from Sidney Lanier High School. He attended college at Vanderbilt University, and law school at the University of Alabama, where he finished first in his graduating class. Growing up, one of Bobby’s great heroes was Judge Frank M. Johnson, Jr., who was noted for his courageous civil rights decisions during turbulent times in Alabama. Bobby says one of the foremost highlights in his career was serving as a law clerk for Judge Johnson.
Following his clerkship, Bobby attended Harvard Law School, where he received an LLM degree in 1973. Then he met his wife, Sandy. At the end of that year, Bobby joined Copeland Franco (then called Hobbs Copeland), where he has been ever since. Bobby’s practice is comprised almost entirely of litigation. Although Bobby prefers to represent Plaintiffs in both personal injury and business litigation, including complex litigation, he has handled a wide array of civil and criminal cases.
Those in attendance at the Roast had a lot of fun at Bobby’s expense. But more importantly, in the process, lots of money was collected for the MCBA Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP). The MCBA Volunteer Lawyers Program provides vital civil legal services for people who otherwise would not be able to afford a lawyer. Pro Bono service is of critical importance to lots of folks in Alabama, and a real opportunity for lawyers to help them.
