February 9, 2017

Troy University Trustee C. Gibson Vance has been elected a Fellow of the Alabama Law Foundation.

Vance, a member of the Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis and Miles, P.C. law firm, joined the Fellows membership that is limited to just one percent of bar membership. To be considered for the honor, the Fellow must have been a member of the bar for at least 10 years and have had to demonstration outstanding dedication to the profession and the community.

“I am honored to be selected as a member of the Fellows of the Alabama Law Foundation,” said Vance. “I understand the importance of their work and I look forward to contributing.”

Fellows commit to a financial contribution that is devoted to the foundation’s mission of providing access to justice. The Alabama Law Foundation, which established its Fellows program in 1993, has awarded $18 million in grants since it was established in 1987.

Headquartered in Montgomery, Ala., Beasley Allen is comprised of more than 70 attorneys and 200 support staff. One of the largest Plaintiffs law firms in the country, Beasley Allen is a national leader in civil litigation, with verdicts and settlements in excess of $26 billion. Beasley Allen was one of only 12 firms in the nation named by Law360 to its Most Feared Plaintiffs Firms list in 2015, and the firm was included on the National Law Journal Midsize Law Firm Hot List and the NLJ Elite Trial Lawyers List in 2014.
