Defense verdict in favor of a railroad tie manufacturer on May 3, 2017, in Blount County, Alabama.
Since joining the firm in 2013, Bob Blackburn has concentrated his practice in the areas of product liability, construction litigation and general insurance litigation. Bob grew up with several family members in the legal profession and later worked as an insurer providing risk management in the construction industry prior to attending law school. This unique background gives Bob a thorough perspective on coverage issues and helps him to not only provide a solid defense, but also help to minimize future risks by offering sound policy decisions. Today, he routinely gives analysis and legal recommendations to insurance companies facing difficult questions concerning coverage. Fiercely competitive, Bob believes in not wasting time, but prioritizing his efforts to establish real value for his clients.
When Bob is not working, you can find him rock climbing or spending quiet time gardening.
Bob earned his BA from The University of Alabama and his JD from The University of Alabama School of Law.
