I was born on June 5, 1934 in Birmingham, AL and first started working at Levy's on weekends when I was thirteen. I went to Ramsay High School then The University of Alabama before serving 3 years in the US Air Force. After serving in Texas and Germany, I returned to Birmingham in 1959, where I have been practicing law ever since. As my father started to age, I began to take a more active role in the business in 1968-69. Working closely with my father taught me the importance of a business having a close, personal relationship with each customer.
