Tatum Jackson’s commitment to service informs her client-first practice.
Tatum pairs her extensive law school involvement with the litigation skills she gained as a Lightfoot summer associate to serve her clients in a wide variety of civil issues. In addition to her numerous awards and leadership roles in law school, Tatum is a former college athlete who brings competitive focus to her day-to-day work. Her work as an associate involves anti-trust violations, internal investigations, fraud claims, and other complex litigation and white-collar matters.
Graduating with honors from the University of Alabama School of Law, Tatum refined her technical skills as a participant on the John A. Campbell Moot Court Board and Judge Conrad Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Team. Tatum’s service-based work ethic deepened as she continued her involvement across campus: she served as the Special Works Editor of the Alabama Law Review, a Law School Ambassador and Orientation Chair and was a member of the Civil Law Clinic.
Tatum was awarded the Alabama Pattern Jury Instructions William C. Sullivan Scholarship and Henderson M. Somerville Prize for Outstanding Achievement in the Legal Profession Course. She also received the honor of Best Paper in the following courses: Legal Profession, White Collar, and Entrepreneurship Seminar.
Before law school, Tatum studied management at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, where she was an accomplished member of the women’s golf team. She received the following honors: Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Award, Academic All-Big Ten, and Women’s Golf Coach Association Scholastic All-American.
A Birmingham native, Tatum’s time outside of the office is spent exploring the city’s restaurant scene with friends and enjoying time with family, who are all located in The Magic City. Though her collegiate competing days are behind her, she remains an avid golfer today.
