Carr Allison has an outstanding reputation in the Southeast in handling litigation for a broad range of professionals. The firm’s professional liability team aggressively defends the rights of professionals in claims involving lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers, insurance and real estate agents. Likewise, our lawyers routinely handle claims involving doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other medical professionals throughout the states of Alabama, Florida and Mississippi.

We have represented professionals in state and federal court and their appellate courts. The Carr Allison team also defends professionals in administrative proceedings, arbitrations and other dispute resolution venues. In addition, our attorneys have expertise in the evaluation of insurance coverage issues and the litigation of declaratory judgment and contract actions in the context of professional malpractice matters.

Our commitment to the defense of professionals inherently recognizes the unique issues presented in professional liability litigation. While our team takes great pride in the ability to present the professional’s perspective before a jury, we also recognize the sensitive nature of the claims and the resultant need to bring such matters to confidential and cost-effective conclusions.
