Firm Details

Chambers USA says this about Christian & Small: "An 'extremely impressive' boutique firm that handles corporate, bankruptcy and tax law, but has a heavy bias towards litigation. Unlike most other firms, expertise is available in almost every area of litigation, even to the extent of criminal work and family matters."

Christian & Small represents a diverse clientele throughout Alabama, the Southeast and across the nation. Established in July of 2000, by partners Thomas W. Christian and Clarence M. Small, formerly with Rives & Peterson, we have a solid foundation and have earned high honors.

We are leaders among Birmingham lawyers, offering the high quality of legal services expected from the larger firms and the client attention that distinguishes the best boutiques.

The firm assists clients in all stages of litigation from preventative strategies to avoid potential liability, pre-transaction counseling, alternative dispute proceedings, trial and, if necessary, appeal. Many of our lawyers are distinguished as being among the best in the nation and have been recognized by many sources including Chambers U.S.A. and The Best Lawyers in America.
