We are pleased to announce that on Thursday, December 7, 2017, Huie senior partner Clay Clark received the Robert W. Lee Award for Excellence in Workers’ Compensation from the Birmingham Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Section.
This recognition, which is given in memory of Birmingham plaintiff attorney Robert W. Lee, is awarded each year to one attorney who consistently works to raise the workers’ compensation bar. Lee was an exceptionally talented attorney who co-authored the highly regarded Alabama Workers’ Compensation Law and Handbook. Lee passed away on August 16, 2009 at the age 55.
Clark was nominated by fellow attorney Steve Goozée of The Law Office of Stevan Goozée to receive this year’s award. “I nominated Clay because I hold him in high esteem as a friend and as a colleague, and Bob did too,” said Goozée.
Since joining Huie in 1983, Clark has created value for long-lasting clients in the areas of employment law, workers’ compensation, industrial accident litigation, retaliatory discharge, sexual harassment, ADA litigation, discrimination, motor carrier litigation, premises liability and general liability litigation. He is an active member of the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association, Alabama Workers’ Compensation Defense Lawyers Association, American Bar Association, Birmingham Bar Association, Claims and Litigation Management, Defense Research Institute, National Retail and Restaurant Defense Association and State of Alabama Department of Industrial Relations Legal Advisory Board.
Clark earned his BS from The University of North Alabama and his JD from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University.
