The Atlas Awards were established to recognize LCLD Fellows who showed the highest levels of engagement throughout their program, which is a year-long professional development series focused on leadership and relationship building aimed at connecting high-potential attorneys from distinguished organizations. The inaugural group of 62 honorees committed to 10 or more programming components ranging from in-person meetings to accountability partner activities to virtual sessions during their Fellowship. Mr. Blackmon successfully completed the LCLD Fellows program in 2023.
Established in 2020, the Alabama Rising Young Attorney Award recognizes a recent graduate who has shown significant leadership and purposeful service to the legal profession, their community and the University of Alabama School of Law. Mr. Blackmon, who is a 2015 graduate (magna cum laude) of the law school, will be honored at the annual Alabama Law Alumni Society Banquet on Mar. 1.
Mr. Blackmon is a partner in Bradley’s Birmingham office and concentrates his practice on high-stakes and appellate litigation throughout the federal and state court systems, focusing on legal strategy, motion practice and appeals. His practice spans from single-event cases to mass tort and multidistrict litigation and he has litigated cases across the substantive spectrum and has an active pro bono practice. An active member of the Birmingham Bar Association (BBA), Mr. Blackmon served as the 2023 president of the BBA’s Young Lawyers Section and was elected to the Place 2 seat on the BBA’s Executive Committee, which governs the 3,300 members in the Birmingham area.
