    Bartley Loftin is very well known throughout Alabama for being an exceptional trial lawyer.  On top of that, Bartley is someone that people like being around.  As you’ll hear on this podcast, he is funny, humble and has an engaging personality.  Bartley has the distinction of working as a partner at all of the largest law firms in Alabama over the years.  He has now gone out on his own as the co-founder of Loftin Holt, LLP, along with his law partner, David Holt.  Their firm is a high-stakes, business-oriented boutique law firm.  Bartley is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell and has been selected as an Alabama/Mid-South Super Lawyer for the past several years as well as being recognized by the Best Lawyers in America for a number of years.  Bartley’s recent notable cases include serving as lead counsel for plaintiffs in a shareholder derivative class action case which settled for two hundred million dollars, which is the largest reported settlement in Madison County, Alabama and one of the largest reported settlements in Alabama.  I think you’ll enjoy hearing Bartley’s story on this podcast.
