Anne Marie enjoys pulling together the moving parts in multi-forum or multi-plaintiff high-stakes litigation. In these cases, she partners with her clients to approach the challenges of litigation in efficient and creative ways. Currently, she is using these skills to help a major facilitator of online travel reservations respond to cases across the country. She also played a central role advising HealthSouth Corporation as it defended and prosecuted claims relating to a massive accounting fraud perpetrated against it by corporate officers. That litigation resulted in a $2.8 billion verdict against the company’s former CEO and a $100 million settlement with the company’s former investment bank. Anne Marie’s practice has taken her to trial in venues as diverse as Alabama state and federal courts, AAA arbitrations, and the Tribal Court of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.
Within the firm, Anne Marie is co-chair of the firm’s Inclusion and Diversity Committee and former chair of the firm’s Associate Committee.
Nationally, Anne Marie serves in ABA Section of Litigation leadership as a Managing Director. Other prior leadership roles in the Section of Litigation have included co-chair of the Membership and Marketing Committee, co-chair of the Regional Meeting Committee, liaison to the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, and co-chair of the Woman Advocate Committee.
