Our office in Birmingham, Alabama was established in 1871, one year after the firm’s founding. Although we have grown into a national law firm with clients all around the globe, we have never lost sight of the core values that our founding partners insisted on: ethics, integrity, excellence in our work product, and an unwavering dedication to community service.
The Birmingham office has been home to legal trailblazers from the very start, from founding partner John P. Tillman, first president of the Alabama Bar Association, to Ellene Winn, who in 1958 became one of the first female partners in a law firm in the southeast, to current partner Jim Rotch, who wrote the famous nondiscrimination statement “The Birmingham Pledge.”
Our commitment to community service is one of Bradley’s most important values. We currently support more than 100 charitable organizations across central Alabama, including the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, and Komen Race for the Cure. After a major outbreak of tornadoes in 2011, our attorneys helped construct a home for a family who had lost theirs in the storms. The law firm holds an annual luncheon called the Dog Days of Summer to benefit a local animal rescue group and animal-assisted therapy organization. Bradley also sponsors a number of scholarships for promising undergraduate and law students in Alabama.
Our Birmingham office and its attorneys have been recognized for their work with numerous accolades in recent years, including:
- We have been named to the Birmingham Business Journal’s “Birmingham’s Most Admired Companies” list each year since 2012.
- The firm has been listed in the Birmingham Business Journal as one of “Birmingham’s Best Places to Work” since 2013.
