I grew up in tiny Livingston, on the western edge of Alabama’s Black Belt, and has carried forward the small-town values of hard work, respect, and fairness into his law practice.

I graduated from the University of Alabama twice — with an undergraduate degree in business in 1998 and with a law degree in 2002. After receiving his J.D., he joined a Birmingham insurance defense firm, where he stayed for five years until he realized that he wanted to work on behalf of injured people instead of insurance companies.

I enjoyed the experience there in the sense that I learned a lot and it made me a better attorney. I don’t know if I’d be as good at what I do now but for the experience of seeing how the other side evaluates things, and the things that scare them. But you’re representing corporations, and your point of contact is an insurance adjuster who’s not concerned about anything but reports and evaluations that aren’t really concerned about right or wrong.

I crossed over to the plaintiff side of the law, joining a Montgomery law firm that concentrated in that area. I stayed there for three years, then ventured out on his own and joined forces with an old law school friend, in 2013. Together we formed the Serious Injury Law Group.

My practice focuses solely on personal injury cases, and he has achieved some significant outcomes on behalf of his clients. They include a medical malpractice jury verdict of $3.5 million and multiple seven-figure settlements in medical malpractice and trucking cases.

My goal is for each client to get the highest level of legal services and personal attention from my firm.

Excellent and declarative Attorney and highly recommended. A lawyer that fights for his client's.
Attorney Brooks is very sincere, compassionate, honest ,dedicated, hardworking and aggressive. He is very knowledgeable in the legal profession. While going through litigation against a fortune 500 company Attorney Brooks was successful in my outcome. He was very empathetic during my case. Attorney Brooks is very firm and resilient against defense attorneys and want shy away from fighting for his clients rights.
