Q&A: What do you like most about the practice of law?

Having the opportunity to find a solution to someone's problem that is likely the most important thing that they have going on in their life is the best part about practicing law. I consider it high praise to be entrusted with someone's biggest problem. I don't think there is a greater compliment for a lawyer than to be asked for help.

Verdicts & Settlements

  • Favorable jury verdict in inverse condemnation claim against Town of Gurley, Alabama. Rebekah obtained a favorable jury verdict and damages in the amount of $2,750,000 on behalf of M&N Materials, Inc. against the Town of Gurley, Alabama, on the claim of inverse condemnation.

  • Numerous multi-million dollar settlements of race discrimination class actions against multiple national insurance companies

  • Numerous verdicts in favor of the injured party in personal injury cases

  • First "Madam President" of the Alabama Association for Justice. Rebekah received the distinction of being elected the first female president of the Alabama Association for Justice (Alabama's trial lawyers association).

  • First female TRIAL trustee for Alabama Association for Justice. Established in 1984 to represent the Association's interests in electoral politics, the TRIAL PAC is overseen by a board of six Trustees elected by ALAJ leadership.
