Bradley is pleased to announce that Robert Maddox, a partner in the firm’s Birmingham office, has been elected as a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation (ABF).

“We congratulate Robert on his acceptance as a Fellow with the prestigious American Bar Foundation,” said Bradley Birmingham Office Managing Partner Dawn Helms Sharff. “As a nationally recognized practitioner, Robert is well deserving of this honor for his work and leadership at our firm and in the broader legal community.”

The ABF Fellows comprise a global honorary society of attorneys, judges, law faculty and legal scholars whose public and private careers have demonstrated dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession and to the welfare of the communities. Membership in the Fellows is limited to 1 percent of lawyers licensed to practice in each jurisdiction. The ABF Fellows provide support through annual contributions and sponsorship of seminars and events of direct relevance to the legal profession. Founded in 1952, the ABF is an independent, nonprofit organization that seeks to advance the understanding and improvement of law through research projects of unmatched scale and quality on the most pressing issues facing the legal system in the United States and the world. 

Mr. Maddox is the practice group chair of Bradley’s 90+ attorney Banking & Financial Services Practice Group, where he represents clients before the CFPB, DOJ, EOUST, OCC, FRB, HUD, SEC and multiple state regulatory agencies, including banking, finance and insurance agencies. In the past decade, he has handled more national/multi-state state attorneys general investigations and related consent judgments than any other attorney in the United States. He also is a regular speaker at national real estate programs, banking, and financial services industry conferences.

For the Mortgage Bankers Association, Mr. Maddox is a faculty fellow and teaches on real estate law and regulatory compliance for the School of Mortgage Banking. In addition, he taught classes at the University of Alabama School of Law on real estate finance and development and state constitutional law, as well as continues to teach classes on consumer finance and enforcement, real property finance and security, and corporate governance as an adjunct professor at the Cumberland School of Law.
