Ivey Orders Legal Services Are Essential

Updated: Jun 16, 2020

On Friday, April 3, Governor Kay Ivey ordered Alabama residents to stay at home other than for essential activities. The order provides that legal services are "essential services."

In line with the Governor's order, Chief Justice Tom Parker issued an order and travel authorization document for lawyers which "authorizes court employees and lawyers to travel and engage in activities reasonably necessary to provide essential functions and services for the court system in the State of Alabama without being cited or arrested for violating stay-at-home orders and other restrictions."

Alabama lawyers are fortunate that our State officials recognize the essential work we do for our clients. While we all continue to socially distance and protect ourselves and our families during this season, this order and authorization will help us keep the wheels of justice turning.

What Our Insureds Say

"...Impressed with all aspects of their handling of the case from the initial intake to the consummation of settlement"

“About two years ago, I had a claim made against a co-counsel and me.  AIM hired excellent counsel to represent me in the matter.  There were very unusual circumstances in the case and AIM and counsel were able to get the claim settled without a suit being filed.  Everything they and the attorneys did was done with my full involvement and with the utmost consideration for all of the many and complicated aspects created by such circumstances.  I have nothing but praise for all that you and the AIM team did in this situation.”
