Jerry Michael Blevins (born July 17th, 1966) is an American attorney, former prosecutor, and founder of The Law Office of Jerry M. Blevins headquartered in Montgomery, AL.[1][2]. From 1984-1986, Blevins served in the U.S. Army as a Calvary Scout while stationed in Bamburg, Germany. After receiving an honorable discharge from the military in 1986, Blevins attended Auburn University at Montgomery and graduated with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. Then in 1990, he attended Thomas Goode Jones School of Law and graduated with a J.D. in 1993[1]. His law firm has received recognition from numerous publications across the State of Alabama especially in the area of legal malpractice[3].

Notable Cases[edit]

Blevins has handled the following major cases:

  • September 1999 - A landmark defamation case regarding alleged "privileged statements" in the context of a legal proceeding. Judge Crawley wrote the opinion of the court which read in part, "The mere fact that Barnes's comments about Blevins related to the fact that Blevins was pursuing litigation against Barnes is not sufficient to elevate his comments to those absolutely privileged because of their relation to a judicial proceeding. Certainly, Barnes's comments about Blevins's alleged “bleeding” of information about his finances and about Blevins's alleged conspiracy with Ms. Parks are not relevant or material to the litigation. Instead, they are simply comments that attack the integrity of Blevins both as a person and in his profession. Therefore, as to Blevins's defamation claim based upon the letter to the attorney general's office the summary judgment is reversed.[4]"
  • February 2011 - Harvey Updyke Jr. poisoned the famous oaks stand at Auburn's Toomer's Corner which serve as a symbol for university students. A third lawyer has stepped down from defending the man accused of poisoning the famous oak trees of Auburn University. Jerry Blevins became the latest attorney seeking to withdraw from the emotive case, citing an 'irreconcilable conflict' between himself and defendant Harvey Updyke Jr.[citation needed]
  • July 2013 - The ex-wife of pro-football great Kenny Stabler sued her former lawyer for malpractice, arguing that he failed to challenge the judge who presided over her misdemeanor criminal trial in 2011. Blevins said Deen failed to adequately represent his client. "Now she has no way to overturn the conviction", he said.[5]
  • April 2014 - An inmate serving life in prison for the murder of her ex-husband’s wife won a $2 million judgment against one of her former attorneys. A Cherokee County jury found Steven Lanier, a lawyer based in Rome, Ga., had committed legal malpractice over contracts he signed to represent Barbara Ann Roberts after her 2006 arrest for capital murder[6]
  • February 2015 - Prattville attorney and former municipal judge George Walthall Jr. is accused of malpractice for reportedly groping a client suffering from mental illness. The lawsuit, filed by Montgomery attorney Jerry Blevins, alleges Wyatt retained Walthall as legal counsel involving a criminal case in Montgomery. The lawsuit reports in July 2014 Walthall made inappropriate advances toward Wyatt.[7]
  • April 2016 - 'Stand Your Ground' defense used in murder of Auburn University football player. "We think it is a clear case, the court should and will grant Markale Hart immunity from prosecution, this is based on what we call 'Stand Your Ground' law," said Jerry Blevins, Hart's attorney. "Multiple eyewitnesses will testify Mr. Mitchell pointed the gun and fired the first shot and Hart shot in self-defense we believe immunity will be granted and the case will be concluded.[8]"
