Lightfoot’s Bridget Harris Appointed to Alabama State Bar’s Helping Heroes in Healthcare Task Force
October 28, 2020
The group, composed of lawyers from across the state appointed by the Alabama State Bar president, was created in response to the growing legal needs of healthcare workers arising from the coronavirus pandemic.
“The task force will expand the Wills for Heroes Program to include healthcare providers as a way to show appreciation for the efforts and sacrifices made by these brave men and women,” said Alabama State Bar president Robert G. Methvin, Jr. “The task force will recruit volunteer lawyers to assist in implementing the expansion of the Wills for Heroes program and will assist in publicizing the program expansion.”
Harris primarily practices in the areas of product liability, catastrophic injury, medical malpractice and commercial litigation. She advocates for her clients day-in and day-out, whether through mediation, arbitration or at trial. Prior to law school, Harris served the Alabama educational community as a Teach for America Corps member, mentoring and sharing career preparedness tips with students at Lee High School in Montgomery. She continues to serve those in need through the Birmingham Bar Volunteer Lawyers Program and Girls Inc. of Central Alabama.
