Aaron G. McLeod

Special Counsel

Convincing appellate judges is different from persuading a jury. It’s a challenge I continue to enjoy.

Aaron McLeod focuses his practice on appellate litigation. Aaron has represented multiple clients in appeals before the Alabama appellate courts, the Eleventh Circuit and Fifth Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the United States Supreme Court, and has served as appellate counsel for clients facing major trials. Aaron is also experienced in defending professional-malpractice cases and has published on the topic of Alabama legal-malpractice law for the American Bar Association’s Professional Liability Litigation Committee.
