October 20, 2020
Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC partner Terry McCarthy co-authored an article for The Alabama Lawyer along with two of his mentors, Dean Charles Gamble and Professor Robert Goodwin. The article, featured in the publication’s September 2020 issue, provides an overview of recent amendments to the Alabama Rules of Evidence.
This is not the first time McCarthy has teamed up with Gamble and Goodwin. The three are co-authors of the Third Edition of Gamble’s Alabama Rules of Evidence (published in 2014) and the forthcoming Seventh Edition of McElroy’s Alabama Evidence (to be published in December 2020).
These are the two leading treatises on evidence law in Alabama and have been cited in thousands of judicial opinions, briefs and articles. Gamble wrote the Alabama Rules of Evidence and served as an evidence professor for many years before his retirement. While in law school, McCarthy served as Gamble’s research assistant.
In addition to his diverse trial and appellate practice at Lightfoot, McCarthy is an adjunct professor of evidence law at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. He also serves on the Alabama Supreme Court Advisory Committee to the Alabama Rules of Evidence.
McCarthy received the Cumberland School of Law “Outstanding Adjunct Professor Award” in 2019. He is also recognized by The Best Lawyers in America© for Appellate Practice, Insurance Litigation and Commercial Litigation.
