The roots of our Birmingham office can be traced to the firm Abe Berkowitz founded in 1928 during the Great Depression. In the late '50s and early '60s, Mr. Berkowitz was outspoken in his opposition to prevailing unfair laws and customs, embodied by Public Safety Commissioner "Bull" Connor. While this made him a target for anti-civil rights extremists, he ultimately contributed to changing Birmingham's form of government, unseating Connor from his position of control. The firm grew tremendously in the ensuing decades, as Abe Berkowitz and original partner Arnold Lefkovits built a client-oriented culture of service which continued up until its combination with Baker Donelson in 2003 and is still alive today.
