For anyone who travels on South Memorial Parkway/231 in Huntsville, you can’t miss attorney Russ Crumbley’s building. Talk about location, especially now that the Parkway construction has been completed! Russ is a highly respected and well known attorney. He and his lawyers handle cases that cover a wide range of law. Russ has a tremendous and admirable work ethic, which is evident when he talks about changing careers from working in the medical field to deciding to attend law school. I had never really gotten to know Russ prior to this podcast so I was happy to be able to sit down with him and get an opportunity to learn about him and his life in the law.
Jake Watson is a well-known and highly respected lawyer. Though he is based in Huntsville, he practices throughout the State of Alabama. Jake represents folks facing complicated criminal defense matters. He handles the defense of clients charged with murder, manslaughter, white collar criminal offenses, DUI, and other serious matters. He also handles personal injury and car wreck cases, along with family law matters. In addition to Alabama, Jake is licensed to practice law in Montana. He explains his Montana connection during his younger years in the podcast along with the love of all things out west! In fact, he attended law school at Gonzaga University in the State of Washington. It is not too far of a stretch to say that Jake comes from Alabama “legal royalty,” as the son of the legendary and preeminent Alabama lawyer, Herman “Buck” Watson. I enjoyed getting to know Jake and his history on this podcast.
The biggest fear and unknown for every landlord of residential or commercial property is whether their tenant will timely pay his or her rent. For all but the most financially affluent landlords this is, of course, a very big deal. Most landlords have their own obligations to worry about which is why late or no payments on rental property can wreak havoc on their own financial lives. On top of this, it is possible, under existing landlord-tenant laws, for tenants to stay in a rental property for a long time without paying for it. Fortunately, for landlords and property owners in Alabama, attorney Sarah Taggart has mastered the art of eviction law and practices throughout the state. She is smart, compassionate and can get through an eviction process, which is stressful for both the landlords and tenants alike, in a quick and expeditious manner. I never really talked to Sarah before this podcast but I have seen her work in court and her demeanor, professionalism and knowledge in dealing with potentially volatile eviction proceedings is both impressive and noteworthy. I know one thing: If I owned rental property anywhere in the State of Alabama, and had any concerns at all about getting paid, I would have Sarah Taggart on my speed dial! I enjoyed getting to know her on this podcast and I think you will like getting to learn about her story.
