Logan Matthews is a diligent lawyer and devoted advocate.
Logan thoroughly investigates the facts of each matter in order to pursue the best possible solution for his clients. He has a diverse practice representing corporate and government clients. He defends leading corporations in product liability, employment and antitrust matters, and he counsels state and local regulatory boards on a host of governmental liability issues.
Among his representations, Logan is part of the Lightfoot team that acts as national defense counsel handling catastrophic injury cases for the country’s largest trailer and truck rental company. He plays a similar role as regional defense counsel for a leading automobile manufacturer. Logan’s victories include securing a dismissal with prejudice in a labor dispute against a leading American steel company, which was affirmed on appeal to the Eleventh Circuit. He also won a bench trial involving the breach of a construction contract, recovering both damages and costs in favor of his clients.
Prior to joining Lightfoot, Logan clerked for a year with Judge W. Harold Albritton III of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. During that time, he oversaw a variety of criminal and civil rights cases, learning firsthand the practice of law in federal court. These experiences have proven invaluable in Logan’s practice at Lightfoot and have allowed him to command early respect in the courtroom.
He received a bachelor’s and a master’s degree, with honors, from Auburn University, where he served as the school’s beloved tiger mascot “Aubie.” As a senior, Logan was inducted into Spades Honorary Society, an honor given each year to the 10 most influential seniors on Auburn’s campus. After receiving his master’s degree in public administration, Logan graduated cum laude from the University of Alabama School of Law, where he was recognized among the top oral advocates in his class, ranked nationally in moot court competitions in Philadelphia and Chicago, and served as an articles editor for the Alabama Law Review.
A member of the firm’s Hiring Committee, he participates in the committee’s efforts to bring only the best talent to Lightfoot. Logan enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, watching college football and gardening. He is married to his college sweetheart, Paula.
