Our Alabama Accident and Injury Attorneys are Committed to Professional Excellence

By concentrating in one particular area of practice, our attorneys are able to achieve and maintain the knowledge, skills and experience that are necessary when representing injured individuals in civil lawsuits. Both Dell Cross and Justin Smith have been frequent lecturers in Alabama in the area of civil litigation. They have written several materials and spoken to other lawyers at numerous continuing legal education seminars across the state.

Dell Cross has practiced law for well over 20 years and Justin Smith has been a trial lawyer for nine years.

The cases have ranged from car accidents between individuals to complex toxic tort and product liability cases against some of the most powerful corporations in America. The firm remains dynamic and is constantly seeking ways to better serve its clients.
We have offices located in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham
Our office in Tuscaloosa, Alabama is located in the Marmaduke Williams House, which is named after its most famous early resident. Marmaduke Williams was born on April 6, 1774 in Caswell County, North Carolina. He completed preparatory studies, studied law and practiced law for several years. Williams was a member of the North Carolina State Senate in 1802. He was then elected to the 8th United States Congress and reelected to the 9th and 10th Congresses (March 4, 1803-March 3, 1809). He moved to the Mississippi Territory in 1810, and then to Huntsville, Alabama.
In 1818, when he was 44 years old, Williams and his family moved to Tuscaloosa. He was a delegate to the Alabama Constitutional Convention of 1819 and made an unsuccessful bid to become the first Governor of Alabama. Williams served in the Alabama House of Representatives from 1821 to 1842 and was a Judge of the Tuscaloosa County Court from 1832 to 1842. Williams died on October 29, 1850 and is buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
The Marmaduke Williams House was built in the 1830s by Williams' son-in-law, Judge Thomas Owen. The original house plan consisted of two main rooms on the ground floor of the main block: a large room with a fireplace and a smaller unheated room containing stairs to the second floor. The ell in the rear of the house was added at a later time. Located in the Druid City Historic District of Tuscaloosa, the Marmaduke Williams House is one of the oldest homes in Tuscaloosa and is the only early Federal style building that still exists in Tuscaloosa. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in February 1975.
Our office in Birmingham, Alabama is located downtown in the Landmark Center. The Landmark Center was built in 1927 and renovated in 1989. It is located at 2100 1st Avenue North, Birmingham. The building consists of seven stories and contains 40,711 square feet at the corner of 1st Avenue North and 21st Street. The building is home to an architectural firm and several other businesses and law firms.
