Verdicts and Settlements

Prince Glover Hayes was established in 1979 by Senior Partner Robert F. Prince in the Prince-Searcy Building in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We are a civil litigation firm concentrating in personal injury, environmental law, and insurance fraud. Under his leadership, the firm has earned some of the largest jury verdicts ever awarded in the state of Alabama.  Our firm has taken on powerful special interests, including large insurance companies, large trucking companies, and corporations with lots of money to spend on their lawyers and their experts.  Our verdicts and settlements prove that we are not afraid of these special interests and that we will fight all the way to the courthouse if we have to in order to make sure our clients get the justice they deserve.
