Fred’s legal abilities were well known, and he was repeatedly recognized by his peers as a leader in the field, earning acceptance into the American Board of Trial Advocates and the American College of Trial Lawyers, prestigious organizations that require extensive trial experience and a demonstration of the highest degree of civility and ethics. Fred exemplified these requirements in all aspects of his practice, which led to his being named President of the State Chapter of ABOTA and State Chairman of the American College of Trial Lawyers. He was AV peer review rated by Martindale-Hubbell for over 20 years, was repeatedly selected for inclusion on the lists of Alabama Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America®.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Fred also made significant contributions to the community.  He was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church where he served several terms on the vestry, as well as serving as junior and senior warden.  He was a member of the President’s Cabinet for the University of Alabama and served on the board for Hospice of Montgomery and the YMCA Metro Board for many years.
