Stephen Andrew Strickland have over twenty-six (26) years of extensive experience in the areas of civil and criminal law in Alabama’s state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels. My practice areas are sexual harassment, employment discrimination, wrongful termination, auto and truck accidents, wrongful death, and personal injuries.
I started working as a law clerk for Richard Jaffe in 1987 when Mr. Jaffe was a partner at Jaffe, Burton & Digiorgio, P.C., and I became an associate there in 1990 upon graduation from law school. When Richard Jaffe decided to establish his own practice, I followed Mr. Jaffe as an associate and later became his partner at Jaffe & Strickland, P.C. Later, Derek Drennan and Hube Dodd would become associates and then partners at Jaffe, Strickland, Drennan & Dodd, P.C.
I was in charge of writing most of the firm’s appellate briefs, and I ran all aspects of the civil litigation side for the firm, including case management, complex discovery, motions practice, depositions, trials, and appeals, when necessary. Most of the civil cases that I have handled were on behalf of injured individuals but I have also successfully represented businesses as well. In addition, we were co-counsel for the Honorable Bernard Kincaid, Mayor for the City of Birmingham – 2000-2008.
In Alabama, five Death Row inmates have been exonerated and are now free. I successfully represented Wesley Quick, the 5th exoneree, on his appeal. In addition, I worked with Barry Scheck and Nina Morrison from The Innocence Project to obtain the release of an Alabama inmate through DNA evidence. I was voted one of the Top Attorneys in Alabama for 2016 as published in Business Alabama Magazine’s Super Lawyers Section.
I also have a current “BV” rating (good to very good) in Martindale-Hubble Peer Review Ratings. My website has many of the larger verdicts and settlements that I have had as well as many of the civil and criminal appeals that I have won during my career.
