Larry Golston, a native of Birmingham, joined Beasley Allen in 2000. Prior to his working in the Fraud section, Larry worked in both the firm’s Business Litigation section and the Environmental & Toxic Torts section. While working in Environmental & Toxic Torts, Larry was a part of the legal team that obtained a settlement of the largest toxic exposure claims in U.S. history. Larry’s practice is now focused on whistleblower litigation, retaliation, wage & hour litigation, sexual harassment, employment discrimination, business fraud and class actions.
Larry graduated from the University of Alabama in 1995 where he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice. While attending college, Larry was initiated into Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and was a member of the University of Alabama Residential Life Judicial Council. His natural passion for storytelling through personal life experiences and interest in social justice would eventually lead him to use his God-given abilities to become a lawyer.
A recipient of the Trial Advocacy and Law School Foundation Scholarship, Larry would go on to graduate from the University Of Alabama School Of Law. Larry served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable James P. Smith of the 23rd Judicial Circuit in Madison County, Ala., and he served as a law clerk for the Honorable Sue Bell Cobb on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals prior to entering private practice at Beasley Allen.
Larry was the lead lawyer on the trial team that obtained a $1.7 million verdict for a small business client involving business fraud in an Alabama court. Larry has been involved in other notable cases that settled for substantial amounts. Those include a contractual dispute and business fraud case involving a consulting firm and Toyota; a whistleblower case involving a former defense contractor employee who informed the U.S. Government that it was being defrauded; and a case on behalf of police officers to recover unpaid overtime compensation.
Larry attributes his success to being relentless and having the right perspective and work habits. He says that like many others at the firm, by keeping his priorities as God first, family second and the practice of law third, he is able to achieve good results for his clients.
Larry currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Montgomery County Bar Association. He has served as president of both the Alabama Lawyers Association and the Capital City Bar Association. He is also the former Chairman of the Adams-Shores Caucus of the Alabama Association for Justice. Larry is a member of the Federal Bar Association.
Larry has been a lecturer on whistleblower litigation, employment law and trial strategies for various legal organizations, including CLE Alabama, the Alabama Lawyers Association and the Alabama Association for Justice. Larry is also frequently a guest on WSFA-TV’s “The Beasley Allen Report” program and on the WVAS 90.7 FM radio show “The Law & You,” where he has spoken extensively on whistleblower litigation and employment law issues such as sexual harassment, wage & hour litigation, discrimination and retaliation.
Larry is married to Danielle Golston. They have two children, a 13-year-old daughter Lauren, and an 11-year old son Larry Kyle. The Golston family attends Northview Christian Church-Safe Harbor in Montgomery, Ala. In his free time, Larry enjoys reading, playing basketball and golf, chess and coaching youth basketball and football. Larry is a very good, hard-working lawyer, who is dedicated to serving his clients. He is a definite asset and we are blessed to have Larry with the firm.
