Claire Burns, who came to work at the firm in September of last year, is a Law Clerk in our Consumer Fraud and Commercial Litigation Section. She is primarily responsible for conducting research for the lawyers in the section. Claire has also drafted complaints, motions, memoranda, lone client investigations, and performed document review for different lawyers in the section.
Claire is originally from Biloxi, Miss. When she began her freshman year at Birmingham-Southern College, her parents moved to Prattville, Ala. She is an only child. Her father is the Senior Manager for Public Relations and Team Relations at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama and her mother holds a BSBA and MBA in Finance. Both of her parents are University of Southern Mississippi graduates. Claire is in her third year as a law student at Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery. She graduated summa cum laude from Birmingham-Southern College with a degree in English Literature and a minor in French.
Since her first year at Jones, Claire has earned five best paper awards. As a second-year law student, Claire participated on five moot court and trial advocacy competition teams. In fall 2014, her team won the Mercer University School of Law Legal Ethics and Professionalism Moot Court Competition. She has also served as a junior editor on the Faulkner Law Review while teaching legal research and writing workshops. This year, Claire is serving as Student Works Editor on the Faulkner Law Review Board and as an Academic Success Dean Fellow. During her free time, Claire enjoys travelling, writing short stories, and playing flute and piccolo. We are fortunate to have Claire with us. She is a very good hard worker and I predict she will soon become a lawyer with tremendous potential.
