Mike Perry


Mike is a native of Birmingham. He graduated from the University of Alabama in 2000 (B.A., English) and Faulkner University, Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 2012 (J.D.).

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mike was a newspaper reporter, with stints at the Mobile Press-Register, the Savannah (Ga.) Morning News. His reporting earned thirteen (13) statewide journalism excellence awards, including the 2005 “Freedom of Information Award” from the Georgia Associated Press.

As a law student, Mike served as a law clerk to the Hon. Charles Price (ret.), presiding judge of the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit in Montgomery. After law school, he spent three years as a criminal defense attorney, defending numerous clients in jury trial against charges of major felonies, including capital murder, before returning to Birmingham to launch his own practice.

As a trial lawyer, Mike employs his reporting background to aggressively gather evidence and develop a winning case theory that will deliver the justice his clients deserve. He is a member of the Alabama State Bar, the Alabama Association of Justice, and a graduate of the National Criminal Defense College in Macon, Ga. (2015).

He is an avid reader, enjoys running and exercising, and resides in Trussville with his wife and son.
