Combine an entrepreneurial spirit with a love for the everyday person and you have an attorney who looks to provide fairness through justice.

When starting his firm in 2001, Alexander Shunnarah, president and chief executive officer of Alexander Shunnarah Injury Personal Injury Attorneys, P.C., went against the grain to develop a marketing strategy that has grown his company to reach and practice across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. 

A passion for people, Alexander has an unwavering belief in the fairness and justice that our country offers. While he was born and raised in Birmingham, his parents risked everything they had bringing his family to the United States to take advantage of the American Dream. Being an attorney allows him to safeguard these freedoms, from economic and political freedoms to cultural and religious liberties. By offering his clients with the legal knowledge to achieve maximum recovery of their injuries, Alexander is providing them the rights and privileges that should be afforded to all Americans.

As Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys continues to work to provide maximum compensation for each of their clients, they look to grow beyond the five-state practice. Alexander envisions his firm becoming a regional personal injury law firm that can plant their brand anywhere and provide successful results for individuals in that community.

This year, Alexander Shunnarah will present Billboards to Memes: The Evolution of Traditional Marketing Strategy.
