Alex Abston:

Hi, I’m Alex Abston and I’m a member of the trial team at the Lanier Law Firm. I’ve actually been at the Lanier Law Firm since I was an intern in high school, and so I’m coming up on what is a little bit over 10 years of time spent at the Lanier Law Firm. I

was an intern and then I was a clerk during law school in our appellate in asbestos departments, and now I’m here and I’m a member of a trial team. So I’m so grateful to be able to work with amazing, incredible people like Evan and so many others, to form a trial team that advocates for our clients passionately and to the fullest extent of the law, we hold other people accountable for the mistakes and the harms that they’ve caused.

Our plaintiffs who are victims. We truly are honored to tell their stories every single day, and we are honored to be their advocates in the judicial system, but we’re even more honored to just know them as human beings and to be able to walk alongside them through this process.
