Practice areas

I am an accomplished attorney with over 15 years experience --  8 years in "large firm" environments -- managing simple and complex litigation matters, commercial transactions, and general corporate issues.  I work closely with corporate clients to help them navigate the legal issues impacting their business goals and objectives, with a focus on increasing profitability and decreasing liability.  

I have developed extensive skill in managing multi-million dollar business transactions, including due diligence, issue resolution, document and contract negotiation and drafting, execution, and post-closing matters.  I also have broad experience and success in all stages of litigation, from pre-litigation negotiations through pre-trial motions to trial and appeal, with a cumulative success rate of over 90%.  I have developed superior research and drafting skills, of immense value to both pre-trial motions and business contracts and agreements.  

►►► Business Owners, Entrepreneurs and Established Companies:  I have the experience and expertise necessary to guide and protect you and your business so that you don’t have to worry about legal issues; you can worry about doing what your business does best.  I have represented businesses in industries as diverse as health care, technology, telecommunications, construction, and retail, in legal issues ranging from formation and development to mergers and acquisitions; from contract and agreement negotiation and drafting to employee hiring, management and termination; from commercial transactions and financing to intellectual property issues; from employee stock incentive plans to sale or dissolution of the company.    

To make sure that your business is operating with optimal legal protection, call me at 205/565-9259.

Very pleased with an extremely thorough job.
Mr. Gosnell drew up my corporation papers, my living will, and my last will and testament. Having recently gone through the process of executing a relative's will, I have come to appreciate the work that Mr. Gosnell did for me as excellent.

Very knowledgeable and easy to work with.
Mr. Gosnell handled my business incorporation and developed several employee contracts for me. He has reviewed several contracts as well. He always kept me informed and made sure all the details were right. He is always available for last minute advise and genuinely cares about your situation.

We've had a long and fruitful professional relationship.
Mr. Gosnell has represented our firm for almost eight years. In that time he has dealt with our complex contractual issues related to sales and installation agreements, service contracts, employment agreements, visa issues and the opening of a branch office in another country. Through all of our issues Mr. Gosnell has provided guidance and counsel in an open an honest manner. I couldn't give him a higher recommendation.
