Nearly 20 years ago, James Wettermark and Chris Keith founded a law firm with a simple goal – to help people injured by the wrongful conduct of others. They knew they would be fighting big insurance companies. They knew they would go up against global corporations and their high-priced lawyers. They knew it wouldn’t be easy. But they didn’t back down. They took them on. Toe to toe. And they won. Over and over again.
The firm’s success did not go unnoticed. The firm’s partners, James Wettermark and Chris Keith received numerous honors, including selection as Super Lawyers. Martindale-Hubbell awarded the firm their highest rating, AV Preeminent. Major labor organizations across the country recognized the firm as a go-to choice for their members. The partners accomplishments have been featured in numerous publications, including The Birmingham News, The Louisville Courier-Journal, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Florence Times Daily, Birmingham Business Journal, Kentucky Post, Cincinnati Enquirer, The Telegraph (Macon), The American Lawyer, The Clarion-Ledger (Jackson), News Herald (Panama City), National Public Radio, and in many other media outlets.
As word of their success spread, they were soon joined by other talented lawyers who shared their vision. Wettermark Keith grew. From the two founding lawyers working out of a small office in downtown Birmingham, Wettermark Keith has grown to 22 hardworking lawyers and nearly 100 dedicated support staff. From the firm’s offices in Birmingham, Chattanooga, Dothan, Huntsville, Montgomery, and Knoxville, the lawyers of Wettermark Keith help people throughout Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, and Georgia.
The firm focuses on personal injury and wrongful death cases. While the firm’s lawyers are understandably proud of their many seven-figure verdicts and settlements, the firm does not limit its representation to large, serious cases. Indeed, it has built one of the largest workers’ compensation and Social Security practices in Alabama and represents thousands of small automobile accident claimants each year.
So, how did they do it? Simple:
- They care about their clients –each client, every client.
- They work hard – each day, every day.
- They believe in their client’s cases – not sometimes, but all the time.
These are the principles that define Wettermark & Keith. And they explain why Wettermark Keith is the name you know. The name you can trust.
