Birmingham Attorney Jonathan W. Gathings

Serving Clients in Birmingham, Shelby County, and throughout Alabama

HDP-1155-250x300Birmingham attorney Jonathan W. Gathings lived throughout the southeast until his family moved to Columbiana, Alabama, while he was in junior high school. He worked as a laborer in textile plants throughout high school and while attending Auburn University, where he majored in business administration.

Jonathan then attended Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama. He received numerous honors while at Cumberland, including being named Chief Justice of the Moot Court Board, The Order of Barristers for excellence through the art of courtroom advocacy, and Who’s Who among American law students.

Jonathan opened his law practice in 1985 and began trying cases within weeks. His casework has covered almost every aspect of law. He gained extensive experience while defending DUI cases and through his representation of both children and adults in his Alabama family law practice. Over the years, his practice has grown to handle personal injury cases, including complex medical malpractice cases, in which Jonathan has been successful in obtaining millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for his clients.

Jonathan is a life member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum of The Top Trial Lawyers in America, which is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Less than 1 percent of U.S. lawyers are members.

Although Jonathan’s practice includes complex, multimillion-dollar cases, the law office of Jonathan W. Gathings & Associates is still focused on a general practice that handles the needs of a wide client base. We put the same emphasis on fighting for the rights of a parent or children in a divorce as we do on a multimillion-dollar personal injury case. As Jonathan learned in law school, putting in the long hours and learning your case thoroughly is the key to handling any matter for your client.

If you or a loved one was injured due to the negligence of another, or if you need assistance with a divorce or other family law matter, please contact Jonathan W. Gathings & Associates to speak with one of our knowledgeable Birmingham attorneys. We welcome clients from the greater Birmingham area and throughout Jefferson and Shelby counties.
