Baxley | Jackson Law Firm
It was trial experience which in 1979 prompted former Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General Bill Baxley to establish his law firm, which continues its litigation representation today as Baxley | Jackson. The firm’s willingness to go to trial, whether the client is an individual or one of Alabama’s largest corporations, has brought success.
Pursuing claims in state and federal courts for individuals, while defending equal numbers of similar actions on behalf of businesses, has earned Bill Baxley and Joe Jackson their reputation for expertise and strong representation of their clients.
Helping individuals injured by the wrongful conduct of others is a commitment the firm takes very seriously; and when they fight, they win. Joe Jackson says, “Getting the best result possible for clients is the goal, and we are proud of the verdicts and settlements reached over the years.”
Baxley | Jackson also has a strong criminal defense reputation, primarily due to Baxley’s long-standing experience as one of the most aggressive prosecutors in Alabama history. In eight years as Attorney General, Bill served as lead counsel in every action on the state's behalf. His successful prosecution of Ku Klux Klansman Robert Chambliss in the 1963 bombing of Birmingham's Sixteenth Street Baptist Church is still the subject of articles and documentaries today. Nearly every year, Bill Baxley serves as lead counsel in defending a high-profile white collar client.
The firm maintains a full service law practice located in Birmingham, Alabama, but vigilantly pursues justice for clients across the state. According to Bill Baxley, “I’ve tried a case in every county in Alabama, and that experience is valuable to our clients.”
