Vicki Dearing is the newest lawyer in the Mass Torts Section at Beasley Allen. Previously Vicki worked for seven years as an insurance defense lawyer, first in Birmingham, Ala., and then in Jacksonville, Fla. Vicki, a native of Montgomery and a graduate of Lanier High School, also worked as a Plaintiff’s lawyer for three years in Florida. While in Florida, Vicki was an adjunct professor for four years, teaching business law prior to joining the faculty full time in 2004 at Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville. Vicki taught law at the school for eight years.
Vicki graduated from Auburn University in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration. After graduation, she moved to Cincinnati to work at Bethesda Hospital. While there, Vicki became involved with Bethany House, an organization helping homeless women. Working with lawyers at Bethany House inspired Vicki to attend law school. She earned her J.D. from Cumberland Law School in 1991. At Cumberland, she was a member of the National Moot Court Team; Order of Barristers and the American Journal of Trial Advocacy.
Vicki is a member of the Florida Bar Association and the Alabama State Bar. She says her favorite part of being a lawyer is being presented with a problem or issue and engaging in the mental challenge of how to resolve it. Vicki made this observation after joining the firm:
I also love the team approach to practicing law at Beasley Allen and I have found the folks working in the Mass Torts section to be very cohesive and supportive of each other.
Throughout the years, Vicki has also continued her interest in reaching out to people in need, especially women who have been victims of domestic violence. While working in Florida, Vicki was very involved with a domestic violence shelter. Since moving back to Montgomery she has been praying about where she can get involved. Vicki is very impressed with the Family Justice Center in Montgomery and its programs. She has also become involved with the Footprints Ministry. Vicki is going to get involved in helping Montgomery’s public schools in some manner.
Since joining Beasley Allen, Vicki has focused primarily on cases involving transvaginal mesh. As we have reported, transvaginal mesh is used to repair conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The complications from transvaginal placement of the mesh are very serious and thousands of women have been severely injured and damaged by its use.
Vicki is married to David Dearing, also a lawyer in the Mass Torts section and they have two children. The Dearing family attends Frazer United Methodist Church. Vicki enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and being involved in prayer ministry. We are blessed to have Vicki with the firm.
