Mr. Tracy Turner

Tracy Turner believes in being very involved and developing personal relationships with his clients. He has litigated in all local state and federal courts, covering such areas as workers’ compensation, employment, unemployment, insurance law, forest use law, and local government law, as well as many diverse aspects of personal injury and construction law. He represents forestry clients in insurance defense and general civil litigation. His forestry clients include foresters, timber brokers, timber harvesters, timber buyers and timber haulers.

Tracy also practices workers’ compensation and employment law, and represents property managers in evictions, premises’ liability, fair housing and fire cases. His experience includes successfully representing insurance companies in fraud and bad faith insurance defense cases.

Tracy’s experience also includes the successful representation of various local government entities in employment, civil rights, general liability and workers’ compensation matters.

Over fourteen years ago, Tracy added mediation to his practice and has successfully conducted mediations in every area of civil litigation. He is a Member of the Panel of Neutrals for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Alabama as well as an approved appellate mediator for the Alabama Supreme Court and Court of Civil Appeals. He is regularly appointed by circuit court judges in Mobile, Washington, Clarke, and Choctaw Counties in Alabama. Lawyers throughout the entire state have selected Tracy to mediate cases in voluntary mediations. Parties can enjoy the use of Johnstone Adams’ office facilities that can accommodate any size mediation group and provide a neutral territory for mediation, or Tracy will travel anywhere in the state to make things as convenient for the parties as possible.

Tracy’s client service philosophy is to push for speedy resolutions whenever possible. He’s cognizant of the frustration his clients experience when matters are drawn out as well as the high cost of lengthy legal issues. His preferred approach is to intervene early and achieve favorable conclusions. And, Tracy’s clients appreciate his efforts and his great communications skills, particularly his excellent listening skills.

When push comes to shove, Tracy is a familiar figure in local and federal courts where he is well known with the judges and court personnel. Having served as a staff attorney immediately upon graduating law school, he developed an in-depth knowledge of the interior workings of the court system. He has known that he wanted to be an attorney since he was eight years old and says the best part is interaction with people and helping them arrive at mutually beneficial results.
