Brett Turnbull has distinguished himself as a leading trial lawyer recognized for his jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients killed or injured by the negligent and wrongful actions of others. When he goes before a jury, he realizes he has one job, to get justice for his client by proving the claims and guiding the jury to award a fair and reasonable verdict. Respect for individuals and for the justice system led Brett, a University of Alabama graduate to pursue law studies at Cumberland School of Law, where he discovered early on that his true passion was trial law. A class leader, Brett won national recognition for his trial advocacy skills.

That leadership track has continued throughout Brett’s legal career, and he gives back to his profession, serving in leadership positions with the Alabama Association for Justice, Alabama State Bar, and Southern Trial Lawyers Association.

Brett and his wife Dawn have been married for 11 years and have four children, Brett, Arden, Miller, and Bess. When he's not in the courtroom, you can find Brett and his family outside playing their favorite sports: baseball, basketball, soccer, golf, and tennis. They also enjoy taking time out of their busy schedule and relaxing at the lake or the beach for a weekend. The Turnbulls are active members at South Highland Presbyterian Church here in Birmingham, Alabama.
