The numbers demonstrate that very few lawyers are willing to try cases and when they do they are not effective. Contrary to the statistics, Stewart Springer has twenty six years of experience trying effectively trying cases.  Springer has proven to be highly successful inside and outside the courtroom.  Outside the courtroom Springer has settled cases in the millions and has represented all types of people including those from his working class background to doctors, lawyers and even judges.  Springer has been successful in the courtroom with juries

having hauled in a personal injury verdict for a former state senator of $500,000.00, obtaining a ‘not guilty’ verdict on three felony counts for a Birmingham Police Officer, and obtaining a verdict of in favor of a lawyer and law firm accused of sexual harassment, battery and assault.  Springer will try cases and take insurance companies to the courthouse in response to low settlement offers or gamesmanship even risking a total loss as opposed to settling for less than the fair value.


TYPES OF CASES HANDLED


Springer has handled all types of personal injury cases including wrongful death cases, complicated product liability cases, countless automobile injury and interstate trucking cases, serious and life altering back injuries, neck injuries, head injuries, brain damage cases, shoulder injuries, leg injuries, foot injuries, broken bones and amputated legs, hands, feet and arms.   Springer has handled and tried all types of cases against most of the very best and highest paid insurance defense lawyers.  


Springer has proven to be an effective appellate advocate as well.  He has handled many appeals and has set precedent that remains in place today from the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals and Supreme Court.  


EDUCATION


    Springer graduated from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama.  Stewart is most thankful to his parents Dot Springer and Clarence Springer for creating the opportunity for him to become a lawyer through their love, dedication, hard work, sweat and tears, and struggle to send him to an premier law school.  Stewart has said “I am happy about becoming a lawyer but I am most proud of my parents for doing so much for me that allowed me such an opportunity.  I will never forget what they  have done for me when I represent people who need my help”


EXPERIENCE


Stewart began his career under the instruction of Lanny Vines at Emond and Vines Law Firm one of the premier law firms to ever exist in Alabama history.  Springer learned not only how to try a case but he learned how to effectively resolve cases.  Springer has trained and collaborated with some of the best lawyers in Alabama in representing injured victims.  


LIFE


Stewart Springer was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama in the 60’s so he knows Alabama and how people here live and think.  He is married to a Dental Hygienist and sole owner of a small business.  He often says the single best decision he ever made in life was marrying his wife Allison.  He has three children Russell, Julia and Caroline.

Springer attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 1982 and obtained his degree in three and a half years graduating in 1985 with a B.S. degree in Public Relations with a minor in Political Science.  While at the University of Alabama, Springer was elected to be a member of the Freshman Forum a very distinguished group of forty freshman students that advised the University.  He was appointed to the City of Tuscaloosa Mayor’s Advisory Council serving Mayor Al Dupont a former war hero he greatly admired.  Springer was elected by his fellow students to serve as the President of the School of Communication.  He was a member of the founding chapter of a national social organization.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Springer’s work experience began when he was just eleven years old.  He began working in the summer in Panama City Beach Florida for one dollar a day.  He worked every summer when school was out in various jobs such as landscaping, loading trucks at a bottling company, bar tending, and in the hotel industry cleaning rooms, maintenance and hauling garbage until he graduated from college.  Springer has demonstrated a history of hard work.


IDENTIFICATION OF CLIENTS

Stewart has had the privilege of representing people from all walks of life including every day hard working folks to doctors, other lawyers and even judges.    Stewart says “while it was a humbling and high compliment to be asked to represent other lawyers and even some judges I love representing the regular hard working man or woman best as they all remind me of my family”.  


PHILOSOPHY

I believe that faith, family, humility and good old fashioned hard work are the keys to helping the people he represents.  Humility and the love of your fellow man are the keys to true meaningful success.   Most important is that I enjoy the law and advocating for the people I have the honor to represent.
