Since 1979, our law firm has had one location. Although we work with lawyers from all over the country, and in courtrooms throughout the U.S., our offices have always been in Alabama’s Capital City. For the first time, Beasley Allen will now open an office in Atlanta. We are excited about expanding our reach to handle more cases in the state of Georgia and especially in Atlanta. This office is scheduled to open no later than January of next year.
We are highly pleased to be joining forces with an outstanding Atlanta lawyer Lance Cooper. Lance, who handles product liability cases, will become a Principal in our firm. He will also maintain his own practice. Our regular readers will remember that Lance uncovered the General Motors’ ignition switch scandal through his outstanding work in the Melton case. That case started the massive recall of GM vehicles, which has saved countless lives. It also was responsible for the creation of an MDL and the settlement of hundreds of cases. Lance is a former president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers and is very well respected in the Atlanta area, Georgia, and throughout the nation.
Chris Glover will be moving to Atlanta to run our new office. Chris, an experienced trial lawyer, handles products and trucking litigation primarily. He recently wrote a book on trucking acceleration, An Introduction to Truck Accident Claims: A Guide to Getting Started, which is available free to lawyers. Chris had this to say about the new venture:
I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to move to Georgia and open our firm’s office in that state. I became a lawyer to help those injured or killed by the wrongdoing of others. The nature of the cases we handle is that our clients are experiencing the most tragic circumstance they will likely face in their life. It is a unique opportunity and very humbling to know that people trust you at their time of greatest need. I think having an office in Atlanta will allow our firm the opportunity to help more and more people. I also really enjoy spending time with other lawyers. I’ve had a wonderful time making new friends in Georgia and hope to have an opportunity to team up with many of them on their clients’ cases. Our firm has always been known for hard work and integrity. Those are qualities modeled to us by our firm’s founder, Jere Beasley, and qualities that will follow us to our new Atlanta office.
LaBarron Boone and Gibson Vance, two of our most experienced lawyers, will also be heavily involved in the Atlanta office. LaBarron and Gibson are members of Beasley Allen’s Executive Board. They have already been in contact with a number of lawyers in Atlanta to let them know of our plans.
The Atlanta office will be handling mostly products liability cases and truck accident cases, which include auto crashworthiness, single vehicle accidents, defective consumer products, defective tires, heavy truck rollovers (normally where a truck driver is injured), cab guard cases (where loads shift in vehicles and injure the driver), on-the-job products liability cases, and defective airbag cases. We will also be handling cases in our normal practice areas, which you can find at www.BeasleyAllen.com
We are really looking forward to this new venture and to working with other lawyers in Georgia, and especially those in the Atlanta area.
