The breakfast will feature attorney Jere Beasley, the senior member of the legal firm Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., as its guest speaker. IT'S FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
Beasley has practiced law as an advocate for victims of wrongdoing since 1962 and has tried hundreds of cases during his career. More than 30 of Beasley’s cases have resulted in verdicts greater than $1 million, half of which exceeded $10 million dollars.
Beasley established his firm as a one-lawyer practice in 1979, after serving as Lt. Governor of Alabama from 1971-1979 (and as governor from June 5-July 7, 1972, while Gov. George Wallace was recovering from an assassination attempt).
Today, Beasley's firm is one of the country’s leading firms involved in civil litigation on behalf of claimants, having represented hundreds of thousands of people. The firm employs more than 250 people in Montgomery, including more than 40 attorneys.
In March 2011, Beasley was honored by the Southern Trial Lawyers Association (STLA) with the War Horse Award, which celebrates the nation’s most outstanding trial lawyers. He also was selected by The Trial Lawyer magazine as a 2011 member of The Round Table: America's 100 Most Influential Trial Lawyers, placing him among the top 100 civil plaintiff and criminal defense attorneys in the United States.
In addition to his trial practice, Beasley is actively involved in many civic endeavors, including the American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes, the American Heart Association, the Lions Club and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.
The ASU Bridge Builders Breakfast Series is designed to bring together community leaders, educators, elected officials, citizens and clergy to discuss issues that affect the Montgomery community. Previous Bridge Builders Breakfast speakers have included Alabama Governor Robert Bentley; former speaker of the Alabama House of Representatives and director of the Alabama Development Office, Seth Hammett; former U.S. Congressman Bobby Bright; former Birmingham Mayor Richard Arrington; and RSA Director David Bronner.
