Kendall Dunson, a lawyer in our firm’s Personal Injury/Products Liability Section, grew up in LaGrange, Georgia. He earned his degree in Corporate Finance from the University of Georgia and his J.D. from the University of Alabama School of Law.
As a young man, Kendall says his decision to pursue a law degree came after being exposed to the “Eyes on the Prize” Civil Rights documentary. He was struck by one consistent fact throughout his studies – any serious progress for Civil Rights originated from our court system. Kendall says he was also motivated by watching LA Law on television when he was young, finding the show to be instrumental in his path to becoming a lawyer.
Kendall has worked on numerous cases involving defective machinery and safety equipment with goals of compensating clients for their losses, as well as influencing corporations to design and manufacture safer products. Kendall says he is most pleased after achieving a result that not only vindicates a client, but also pushes for stronger safety regulations. In one of Kendall’s cases, his client’s husband was killed when a Goldkist truck backed up and killed him. The truck was not equipped with a back-up alarm despite needing one. As a result of the verdict, Goldkist has since outfitted its entire fleet of trucks with back-up alarms.
Kendall says he is grateful that Beasley Allen provides a work environment where people truly care about their clients, each other and society in general. He believes the firm has a unique opportunity to become involved in major litigations due to its past success, therefore ensuring there is never a boring day in the office.
Kendall is married to Samarria Munnerlyn Dunson. Samarria, who is also a lawyer, is the Director of the Office of Compliance and Ethics for the Alabama Department of Public Health. Kendall and Samarria have three children – two daughters and one son. Kendall is a tremendously talented and hard-working lawyer and we are blessed to have him with us.
