More than 2,000 lawyers pre-registered for the seventh annual Legal Conference & Expo put on by our law firm last month. The event, held at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel convention center, was a tremendous success. The two-day event provided continuing legal education credits and was open to all Alabama lawyers in private practice. The conference is one of the top five legal conferences in the United States. Dawn Hathcock, Vice President of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitor Bureau, had this to say about the meeting of lawyers:
With its annual legal conference, the Beasley Allen Law Firm brings in lawyers from all over the state, providing them an opportunity to see everything Montgomery has to offer as a meeting destination. This is the largest conference of its kind within the state of Alabama and not only showcases the city, but provides a huge economic impact in the River Region of roughly a million dollars. Events of this stature are extremely important, as we continue to market Montgomery as a true meeting destination.
Practice areas addressed at the conference included product liability, mass torts, whistleblower litigation and fraud. Special programs featured the topic of legal ethics. The meeting also featured some outstanding speakers, including Charles Price, the Presiding Judge for the 15th Judicial Circuit; Gov. Robert Bentley; Chief Justice Roy Moore; Dr. David G. Bronner; Senator Cam Ward; Rich Raleigh, Jr., president-elect, Alabama State Bar; Josh Wright from the Alabama Association for Justice; and Jeremy McIntire, assistant general counsel, Alabama State Bar. Rev. Jay Wolf, Pastor at First Baptist Church, was the speaker at the prayer breakfast held on Nov. 22. The prayer breakfast attracted a capacity crowd and was a highlight of the event.
At the Legal Services Expo, vendors provided demonstrations of products and answered questions about how lawyers can best enhance their practice. Event platinum sponsors were Jackson Thornton Valuation & Litigation Consulting Group; LexisNexis; Freedom Court Reporting and Baker Reporting Services.
Legal and community groups involved included the Alabama State Bar Volunteer Lawyer Program, Alabama State Bar Lawyer Referral Program; The Alabama Law Foundation, The Alabama Civil Justice Foundation, The Alabama Association for Justice and Jones School of Law. Our firm’s Managing Shareholder, Tom Methvin, had this to say about the two-day event:
We are extremely pleased to be able to offer this conference as a service for lawyers throughout the state of Alabama. This is a valuable opportunity for continuing education, as well as providing the chance for networking with other attorneys.
Hopefully, all of the lawyers in attendance learned something during the expo that will help them in their practices. I know that I did. We were honored by the presence of the speakers and the lawyers in attendance.
