Our practice is limited solely to personal injury cases.

Additionally, our legal team is well-equipped and experienced at handling severe and catastrophic injuries such as paralysis, traumatic brain injury, amputations and burns.

The practice area of Drake Law Firm covers the entire State of Alabama. While our main office is in Birmingham, the majority of our cases are in the outlying counties such as Calhoun, Cullman, Morgan, Blount, Madison, Chilton, etc. We represent clients from Huntsville to Dothan, from Anniston to Tuscaloosa.

The firm was founded by Whit Drake in 1998 after he worked for another personal injury law firm in Birmingham for nine years.  Mr. Drake tried his first case at age 25 and obtained a $700,000 punitive damage jury verdict against Northrup King Company for a farmer who had bought contaminated feed for his dairy cattle.  His first verdict for more than a million dollars came just two years later in a wrongful death case.  Since that time, he has obtained numerous verdicts and settlements in excess of a million dollars, including obtaining record verdicts in several counties. He has also written multiple articles for legal publications and spoken extensively at legal seminars. Drake has successively handled cases in West Virginia, Mississippi, Florida, Kentucky, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas, Georgia and North Carolina.
