Jeff Blackwell – Blackwell Law Firm

Practice/Organization Description

I represent individuals who have suffered substantial personal injuries or damages. My cases include:

- Personal Injury

- Automobile Accidents

- Wrongful Death

- Defective Products

- Workers' Compensation

- Breach Of Trust And Fraud Claims

- Consumer Actions

My pre-law background includes a degree in financial accounting and work during college as a business intern at General Motors. I am a graduate of the American Association for Justice's National College of Advocacy. I have practiced exclusively as a trial attorney since graduating from law school in 1995. During my first three years as an attorney, I worked as an associate in a Birmingham law firm handling personal injury and business litigation throughout Alabama. During these first three years, I orally argued a case before the 11th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals, served on the trial team successfully defending a large Alabama corporation from fraud allegations and recovered a significant settlement on behalf of a state-wide class of Alabama consumers. After working as an associate for three years, I returned to North Alabama and joined a Huntsville trial firm. I then served as a partner in this Huntsville firm for the next 17 years. During that time, I handled personal injury claims throughout Alabama. I tried claims to a verdict in multiple Alabama counties as well as the Federal Court for the Northern District of Alabama. When one of my law partners announced his retirement in 2015, I decided to open the Blackwell Law Firm. The Blackwell Law Firm continues to handle cases involving significant personal injury, automobile accidents, workplace injuries, injuries due to defective products and selected business damage claims throughout Alabama.
