I have been an attorney in Alabama for over 17 years and I’ve had clients call me with almost every conceivable legal question and case. When it’s a matter outside my expertise, I call Jonathan and he always seems to have the answer. Many of his cases settle without going to court due to the fact he puts a great deal of time and energy into preparing his cases. I have referred many of my complex cases to Jonathan and have assisted him in several of the trials. He’s truly at his best when in the courtroom representing his clients. I have watched him obtain million dollar plus jury verdicts and have always been very satisfied with the results on any case I referred to him. In fact, I’ve been so satisfied that I have referred close family members to him to handle their cases.

Jonathan and Kim represented my wife and me in a tractor-trailer accident. I never expected to receive so much money. Totally satisfied with the outcome of the case and pleased with the settlement. I will definitely refer any friend or family with legal fights to Jonathan and Kim.

From a Client and Retired 1st Sergeant in the U.S. Army

Honor coins are given to show honor and appreciation for a job well done. They are usually given by superior officers or commanders to their subordinates. Great value is placed upon Honor Coins by the recipient, as well as the commander who is presenting the coin. These coins recognize and reward dedication, bravery, and teamwork.

I am proud to present Jonathan Gathings and Kimberly Byram Vice Honor Coins in recognition and appreciation for their performance day after day in a very difficult medical malpractice case. I had lost faith in the legal system and had no respect for attorneys until I witnessed Jonathan and Kim fight all day in court and work throughout the night to argue my case. Not only did they battle their hearts out for me, they grew to be dear friends.

I’ve been to battle many times for my country. I am honored that you went to battle for me.

From a Court Reporter Prior to a Jury Verdict

There’s an old Texas tradition that says when another person makes note of your tie, as you did Monday morning, you pass that tie to them.

Thirty-five years in this business, and you impress me. I am not easily impressed by anyone. But as far as lawyers go, there are only two kinds, civil plaintiff lawyers and criminal defense lawyers. You have found your calling … and chosen a good partner. Your breed is all that is keeping our Constitution alive.

I hope you never cross the fence. You are too good at preserving the common person’s hope.

If you or a family member was harmed due to the negligence of another, or if you are faced with the prospect of divorce, please contact Jonathan W. Gathings & Associates to schedule your consultation. We welcome clients from the greater Birmingham, Alabama, area and throughout Jefferson and Shelby counties.
