Review John McBrayer

About Me

I have served as a municipal judge for over 30 years and have been a divorce mediator since 1995.  Although I still do mediations, I now practice only as a private attorney with offices in Pelham and Fairhope, Alabama.  Over the years the focus of my practice has gradualy changed from criminal to divorce and now, Probate law.  However, my specialty in whatever area of law I am involved, is personal service.  As a solo practitioner, I give each of my clients the personal attention they deserve.  Please check out my website at or call my office (205) 664-3838 for an appointment.
