Bartley Loftin is very well known throughout Alabama for being an exceptional trial lawyer.  On top of that, Bartley is someone that people like being around.  As you’ll hear on this podcast, he is funny, humble and has an engaging personality.  Bartley has the distinction of working as a partner at all of the largest law firms in Alabama over the years.  He has now gone out on his own as the co-founder of Loftin Holt, LLP, along with his law partner, David Holt.  Their firm is a high-stakes, business-oriented boutique law firm.  Bartley is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell and has been selected as an Alabama/Mid-South Super Lawyer for the past several years as well as being recognized by the Best Lawyers in America for a number of years.  Bartley’s recent notable cases include serving as lead counsel for plaintiffs in a shareholder derivative class action case which settled for two hundred million dollars, which is the largest reported settlement in Madison County, Alabama and one of the largest reported settlements in Alabama.  I think you’ll enjoy hearing Bartley’s story on this podcast.

Attorney Rich Raleigh is a shareholder with the highly respected Huntsville law firm of Wilmer & Lee, PA.  As you’ll learn on the podcast, Rich has always been about service.  Prior to joining Wilmer & Lee, Rich served his country with the U.S. Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps.   Once Rich left his active-duty military service, Rich continued his service in our community in leadership roles with Arts Huntsville, the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association, the Downtown Rotary ClubNational Children’s Advocacy CenterSparkman Center Boys and Girls Club and with the Old Town Historic District Association.  In addition to all of his service work Rich is, of course, a highly respected and sought after attorney.  This is no more evident than in his various roles with the Alabama State Bar, culminating in his election as President of the Alabama State Bar in 2014.  Rich has also been selected as an Alabama/Mid-South  SuperLawyer for the past several years.  It was good to talk to Rich on this podcast and I think you’ll enjoy hearing his story.

Jim Parkman is a lawyer with Boles, Holmes, Parkman & White with offices in Birmingham and Dothan, Alabama.  Jim, as I learned, handles complex and high profile white collar criminal defense cases nationwide.  For example, Jim was the lead counsel representing Richard Scrushy of Birmingham’s Healthsouth  in the mid-2000s.  With Jim as his counsel, Mr. Scrushy was acquitted of all 36 charges before a jury in federal court.  You can read about that trial here and also, if you have some down time to watch Netflix, check out the documentary “Trial by Media, King Richard episode” in which Jim plays a prominent role. When you hear Jim, you will quickly realize that he can be very impressive and captivating to jurors who are selected to sit on his cases.  You’ll also hear about someone who, after many years of trying criminal cases, is really considered a master of his craft and is held in very high regard throughout the country.  I think you’ll enjoy hearing Jim’s story on this podcast.
