ALABAMA DUI LAWYERS PRICES: Lawyers charged with human rights abuses in the state have the highest prices in the country, according to an investigation by The Sport Biblical.
Alabama’s lawyers charged with crimes in the case of an alleged car accident were paid more than $1,000 per hour, according an investigation published Wednesday by The Sports Bible, a Christian publication based in Florida.
The Sports Bible analyzed data from more than 60 Alabama lawyers and found that attorneys in the city of Mobile and Birmingham are among the top earners for lawyers who work on human rights cases.
They were paid between $500 and $1 and $700 per hour in each case.
“It was really shocking to us,” said Christian, who requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation.
“We were expecting the lawyers to make less than the average lawyer.
The only lawyers we saw that were earning $500 an hour were in Mobile and in Birmingham.
This is really shocking.”
Christian said she received a letter from the Alabama attorney general in October stating the state’s lawyers were making “an astronomical amount of money.”
The letter was sent by attorney Bob Davis, who is also the chief of the Alabama chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
“This is a disgraceful practice,” Christian said.
“They are charging us thousands of dollars a day to represent people who are in need.”
The Alabama attorney General’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
In a statement, Davis said, “The legal profession has come a long way in terms of transparency and accountability.
In Alabama, I want to be a part of that effort.
I applaud the attorneys for their work and hope they will work to improve their salaries and benefits.
I also commend their willingness to be accountable for their actions.”
Davis’ letter said attorneys in Mobile are the highest earners in the Alabama area, according a review of data from the law firm of Perkins Coie, which represented the Mobile lawyers.
In Birmingham, the highest paid attorneys were in Birmingham, where the attorneys were paid $7,300 per hour.
The Birmingham attorneys were also among the attorneys who made more than the $1 million threshold in the investigation, which included the fees charged by the Birmingham attorney general’s office and the fees paid by the Alabama Office of Professional Responsibility.
The Alabama Office is responsible for prosecuting human rights crimes and prosecuting attorneys in court.
In 2015, it was revealed that the office had been using state funds to pay attorneys for work on cases involving civil rights.
The state also paid the attorneys to represent victims of human rights violations in Alabama.
The lawyers in Birmingham also made more money than the Alabama attorneys in Alabama, according the investigation released Wednesday.
The lawyers in Mobile, Birmingham and Mobile earned an average of $1.2 million a year, or more than three times as much as the Alabama lawyers.
The attorneys in Birmingham and Birmingham earned an additional $1-million annually, which is a lot more than any of the other attorneys in those cities.
The investigators said it was “unprecedented” to find so many Alabama attorneys making as much money as the other Alabama attorneys.
They said their findings “should prompt the state attorney general to investigate the practice of attorney compensation in Alabama.”
They said the findings show that “Alabama’s attorneys have been receiving compensation for their human rights work at rates similar to those in most other states.”
In a written statement, a spokesman for the Alabama Attorney General’s Office said, “[The report] is based on an exhaustive review of hundreds of thousands of documents from the Office of the Attorney General and other state agencies.
The Office does not have a specific number of Alabama attorneys who are making more than attorneys in other states.
The report does not examine the specific compensation of attorneys in a given jurisdiction.
We have made an effort to review our compensation policies and practices across the state, and we will continue to do so.”
The investigation was based on a review by The Sporting Bible, which obtained records of nearly 3,500 Alabama lawyers over a six-month period.
The report was compiled by The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups and organizations and publishes a list of attorneys that have violated the civil rights of their clients.
