Tommy Allen French, Attorney At Law

I’ve been practicing law for nearly 20 years. I began working in my Dad’s law office in high school over 30 years ago. During law school, I was law clerk for the late Judge Richard Dorrough in Montgomery, Alabama where I presided over pendente lite hearings as special master. My training instilled in me the importance of preparation and being confident in all aspects of a case.

I opened Richardson & French in 2004, where I acted as city attorney in Fort Deposit, Alabama.  In 2007, I moved to Trussville, Alabama and I began my daily commute to my hometown in Fort Payne, Alabama to practice law alongside my Dad, Robert B. French, Jr. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with clients from all walks of life without thought to money, status, color or religion. I believe my clients deserve an attorney who is competent, compassionate and confident, without being arrogant.

Sometimes you just can’t get out of a cycle of fear and confusion.  Afraid to ask questions because you’re worried about the answers you might hear?

It’s never a good idea to try and work out problems in your head when you don’t have all the facts or know the law as it pertains to your specific set of facts.  Working on assumptions or misinformation that someone shared with you can cause you to make bad decision and cause you more stress and fear.
