Liz Huntley Profiled by Alabama Alumni Magazine
September 29, 2020
Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC lawyer Liz Huntley is profiled in the fall 2020 issue of Alabama Alumni Magazine. The “Milestones” feature discusses how Huntley’s early life gave her a desire for justice, which led both to her legal career and passion for child advocacy.
In the profile, Huntley also talks about how helping others and making a difference drive everything she does.
“It’s like adrenaline when you do something and you see the impact of it on the lives of others, whether it be a client’s successful results or a program where somebody is impacted by things you helped coordinate or participate in,” she says in the article. “That made a difference for me. Those are the things that keep me going.”
In addition to handling large corporate litigation matters at Lightfoot, Huntley is a committed child advocate and provides legal and consultation services to government and nonprofit agencies that serve children and families. She is frequently appointed by judges to represent the legal interests of children in civil cases.
Huntley also serves as a motivational speaker to various groups and organizations where she challenges audiences to adopt her “no excuses” philosophy. In 2015, she published her personal memoir, “More Than A Bird,” which recounts her childhood journey “from unimaginable darkness to radiance.” Huntley was named a Birmingham Bar Foundation Fellow in 2018.
