Election Law

Our firm has extensive experience with election law and legislative revisions to Title 17 of the Alabama Code which governs all aspects of the election process. In Alabama, the Probate Judge in each county is the chief election officer. We have been privileged to represent the Alabama Probate Judges Association for several years. We have recently handled election contests in races for mayor, county commission, and circuit judge. We are frequently called upon to advise local and statewide political campaigns concerning issues arising out of the Fair Campaign Practices Act. One of our members was a lead counsel for Perry Hooper, Sr. in the historic litigation involving the 1994 race for Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Lasting over eleven months, that litigation involved three trips to the U.S. Supreme Court and culminated in the investiture of Perry Hooper, Sr. as the first Republican Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in over 100 years.
