Lightfoot Celebrates 25 Years!
January 15, 2015
Lightfoot, Franklin and White, LLC was founded twenty-five years ago today on January 15, 1990. What started as a firm with eight partners, four associates, and nine support staff has grown to be one of the largest litigation-only firms in the Southeast with 59 attorneys and a support staff of 42 that includes an in-house Litigation Technology Services Department. Lightfoot has participated in over 145 trials since its founding in 1990.
Lightfoot attorneys have represented a broad range of clients in matters in more than 30 states, have a record of trying the toughest cases to verdict, and are routinely retained post-verdict to handle post-trial motions and appeals of verdicts ranging from half-a-million to several billion dollars. Fifteen of our partners are recognized by the Alabama edition of Best Lawyers, twenty-two have been selected for inclusion in the Alabama Edition of Super Lawyers and five are Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers. In addition, Lightfoot has a band one ranking in Chambers USA and is listed consistently in Benchmark as a "highly recommended" litigation firm in Alabama.
Since our founding, Lightfoot attorneys have focused on creating and promoting an environment that puts client service first. Every structure in the firm is designed to achieve two things: results and client satisfaction. The resulting steady growth in the firm is proof that taking care of your existing clients is still the best business model.
