If you read or hear about a case alleging a violation of civil rights or civil liberties anywhere in the State of Alabama, chances are good that attorney Hank Sherrod is involved with the lawsuit. Hank’s office is located in Florence, Alabama but he handles civil rights, employment law and jail death cases throughout Alabama. Hank graduated with high honors from Birmingham-Southern College and then attended Vanderbilt University Law School where he served on the Vanderbilt Law Review and Order of the Coif. He is also a graduate of the Trial Lawyers College founded by legendary trial lawyer Gerry Spence. Following law school, Hank moved to Texas and worked there for a while before settling in Florence where he started a law practice that has allowed him to focus on the areas of law that he is really passionate about. Hank is a founding board member of the Alabama affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association and has served as its President. He has served on the board of the ACLU of Alabama since 2005 and currently serves on the Legal Committee. I have talked to Hank over the phone on a number of occasions over the years but this is the first opportunity that I have had to sit down with him face to face and learn about his story.
