The Mobile, Alabama office of Galloway, Johnson, Tompkins, Burr and Smith
opened in 2010 to provide the firm's clients with legal services in this key Gulf of Mexico port city. The GJTBS Mobile attorneys handle various legal matters, including Jones Act, LHWCA, general maritime law, construction defect, professional liability, premises liability, employment law, and insurance coverage. Our attorneys provide the firm's clients with the services necessary to protect their interests while understanding the legal issues surrounding Mobile's business environment.
Mobile serves the Gulf Coast as a regional center for maritime, construction, manufacturing, and transportation services. The Port of Mobile is recognized as one of the country's largest by tonnage and has direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and 1,500 miles of inland and intracoastal waterways serving the Great Lakes, as well as the Ohio and Tennessee river valleys via the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. In late 2009, Mobile became the home port for a Carnival Cruise Line ship serving the Western Caribbean from the Alabama Cruise Terminal located in downtown Mobile. Recent expansions by the Alabama State Docks and Austal USA, along with ThyssenKrupp's plan for a multi-billion dollar steel plant to be built in northern Mobile County, have helped Mobile weather the recent global economic downturn and positioned Mobile to be a major business center in the future. But Mobile, Alabama is not all work and no play for its citizens and visitors, as the city offers a wide variety of cultural, sporting, and other leisure activities. Along with its Mardi Gras celebrations and parades, Mobile is home to several arts museums, a symphony orchestra, a professional opera, a professional ballet company, and numerous historic sites and buildings. The Mobile attorneys of GJTBS will continue the firm's tradition of providing its clients with quality legal services as the city moves forward into a bright future.
