Mass Torts & Pharmaceutical Product Liability Attorney

Lew Garrison is one of the firm’s founders and primarily practices in the area of mass torts and pharmaceutical product liability. He also represents clients in other complex civil litigation. Lew decided to become an attorney because the profession was always intriguing to him. Even at a young age, he would go visit an attorney in his home town and ask questions about the law. During his first year of college, Lew would often go to the law school to study. To him, the legal profession is an honorable calling. Lew believes that attorneys are called upon to represent their clients, but not to the point of pursuing a claim that is without merit. He has always been drawn to the underdog, which was part of the reason that he was drawn to plaintiff representation. Lew enjoys this side of the legal system because he believes representing a plaintiff levels the playing field—so that one person can stand toe to toe with the largest corporations. He is a member of the Alabama State Bar, as well as the State Bar of Georgia. Lew is also a member of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the Alabama Trial Lawyers’ Association, and the Birmingham Bar Association, where he has served on the grievance, public relations, and special assignments committees. He is a frequent speaker at continuing legal education seminars.
