I had the pleasure of sitting down with Judge Bob Vance last week. The discussion we had is timely since Judge Vance is the Democratic candidate for the position of Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Judge Vance has served as a Circuit Court Judge in Jefferson County, Alabama since 2002. The Vance family has given more service to our state and country than most. Judge Vance's father, the Honorable Robert S. Vance, served on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals until his untimely and tragic passing in an evil attack. Judge Vance's mother was also seriously wounded from the heinous act. Additionally, Joyce White Vance, Judge Vance's wife, served as the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama from 2009 to 2017. She is now a professor of law at the University of Alabama Culverhouse School of Law.
 
Judge Vance is very well respected throughout the state of Alabama and he was recently endorsed by six former Alabama Supreme Court Justices, three of whom are Republicans. I cover a good bit of ground here with Judge Vance and I think you will enjoy hearing his story. It was a pleasure to meet this man that I have heard so much about over the years.

Those of us who practice law know that certain exceptionally bright lawyer who always has a relevant holding and a case name to go along with it, no matter what the topic may be. Mike McCormick is one of those lawyers. I know this not only from practicing on the other side of him but, more to the point, from practicing with him. Bond and Botes was fortunate enough to have Mike as a Managing Partner in our Biloxi office way back when before he left for the big city of Atlanta. Mike is now a Senior Partner with the firm of McCalla Raymer where he handles all aspects of a mortgage lending bankruptcy law practice. We sure do miss him being on the consumer side! By the way, I don't think I have ever met someone admitted to practice law in more states than Mike. I think you'll enjoy hearing his story.

Call me Alabama! You can't go anywhere in Alabama without seeing Alexander Shunnarah's billboards or seeing his ads on television. In fact, there are games and songsthat have been made regarding his billboard advertising. Alexander Shunnarah's name has become synonymous with personal injury law in Alabama. In this podcast, you will find that Alexander has a sense of humor regarding his advertising as seen here and here. He has built a powerful law firm with a very well-respected team of lawyers. I had never met nor spoken with Alexander before I sat down with him for this podcast and I found him to be gracious, humble and just a nice guy with a tremendous work ethic and drive to succeed. It is clear that he is intelligent, tenacious and a visionary. Alexander has an interesting family history of how he got to where he is and I think you will enjoy hearing his story. I am glad that I got to know him.
