Firm News, Accolade

Bradley is pleased to announce that Matthew H. Lembke, a partner in the firm’s Birmingham office, has begun his 2019 term as president of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers (AAAL). He is the first lawyer from Alabama to serve in this leadership role.

The AAAL’s membership is made up of only experienced appellate advocates who have demonstrated the highest skill level and integrity, and the organization’s Fellows rank among the “who’s who” of appellate practice in the jurisdictions where they appear.

“We congratulate Matt on his election as president of the prestigious American Academy of Appellate Lawyers,” said Bradley Chairman of the Board and Managing Partner Jonathan M. Skeeters. “Matt has a long track record of successes in helping to protect our clients’ trial wins and overall business interests. I know he will bring that same level of advocacy and wise perspective to his term as president.”

Mr. Lembke began his career at Bradley in 1993 after completing a clerkship with Justice Anthony Kennedy at the United States Supreme Court. During his 25 years in private practice, Mr. Lembke has extensive experience representing clients at the trial and appellate levels in high-stakes cases in state and federal courts. Mr. Lembke closely follows developing legal issues, and he has been interviewed on Fox News and MSBNC, as well as by the New York Times, Law360, and Bloomberg Law.

Founded in 1990, the AAAL advances the administration of justice and promotes the highest standards of professionalism and advocacy in appellate courts.
