Bobby Poundstone, Managing Partner of the Bradley law firm, has been practicing law for 20 years in Montgomery and names the relationships with his colleagues among the highlights of his career.
What are Bradley’s primary areas of focus?
Bradley is a full-service national law firm primarily serving business clients and other organizations. The primary practice areas of the lawyers in the Montgomery office are litigation, business transactions, tax, trusts and estates and governmental affairs.
What are your primary areas of focus?
I am a general litigator with most of my cases falling under commercial litigation. I routinely handle litigation matters, including class action lawsuits for businesses, not-for-profit organizations and municipalities.
What’s the most rewarding aspect of your work?
As a litigation attorney, clients are almost universally unhappy at the prospect of needing my services. No one wants to be in a lawsuit, and that is especially true of the defendant in a lawsuit, which is the position most of my clients find themselves in. With that said, litigation presents an opportunity to help solve a client’s problems. It is always rewarding when you can turn the client’s initial angst over being in litigation into a final resolution about which the client feels positive.
Any recent honors?
There are plenty of recognitions and awards that are all, obviously, great honors, but I am even prouder of the quality of the people we have in the Montgomery office. I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with great lawyers who are also great friends.
What are your interests outside of work?
My wife and I have two children in 7th and 9th grades at Montgomery Academy, so their activities keep us very busy. I serve as a committee chair in the American Bar Association Section of Litigation and am also a representative to the ABA’s House of Delegates. In addition, I am on the board of the Jason Dufner Foundation, which fights childhood hunger.
