About the Firm

The Greer Law Firm, P.C., is a business law and litigation firm that helps businesses and individuals from all regions of the United States prevail in business disputes, state and federal court litigation, and state and federal administrative proceedings throughout Alabama. The Firm has an extensive track record of experience and competence in obtaining successful outcomes for a diverse client base in a wide array of contentious business disputes and litigation involving the following: breach of contract; business transactions; business torts; commercial collections; construction projects; employment law (employer only); lease law (landlord only); and real estate transactions.

The Firm has a nationwide client base. Although a considerable number reside or have principal offices located in Alabama, an equivalent number are domiciled throughout the United States, including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington, as well as in Canada. The Firm also receives frequent referrals from in-house corporate counsel and out-of-state lawyers regarding business disputes and litigation arising in Alabama.

The Firm's Philosophy: Listen, Analyze & Exercise Common Sense

Too often lawyers act impulsively and opt for litigation first as a strategy to resolve disputes; that is the wrong approach. Listening is becoming a lost art. Through the years, experience has taught me that listening and thoughtful analysis of the facts, while not exciting, is a lawyer's paramount obligation. Litigation may well be the best, and possibly the only, viable option to resolving a dispute; but that should come only after an informed judgment is reached and a coherent strategy is developed that serves the client's best interests.

Once a lawsuit is filed, lawyers can become enamored with litigation, which can develop a life of its own that can slip from a lawyer's grasp and actually damage the client. Litigation brings with it a toll on all parties and frequently diverts vital emotional, financial and management resources away from a business's essential purpose. For this reason, common sense needs to guide the lawyer and the client before filing, or aggressively defending, a lawsuit. Parties who have been there before know exactly what I am talking about.

What You Can Expect from The Firm

The Firm has the knowledge, analytical ability and experience to develop an effective strategy to fit your case, your budget and your objectives and to make strategically sound recommendations at all phases of your dispute. It also possesses the skill and intellectual stamina to keep fighting for you and your best interests until your dispute has been resolved, either by settlement or trial.

While the Firm is handling your case, you will receive competent, honest and tenacious representation, frequent status updates communicated in plain English, and a single-minded determination to achieve a successful result in your case. And you will not have to work through layers of people or wait an unreasonable length of time to communicate directly with your lawyer. Accessibility and responsiveness are top priorities for the Firm: day, night or weekend.
