Our Firm

Cabaniss, Johnston, Gardner, Dumas & O’Neal LLP has been known as one of the premiere law firms in Alabama and the Southeast for over a century. Cabaniss’ goal is not to be the largest law firm in Alabama or the Southeast, but to be the firm that clients go to for their most challenging legal needs. The firm was founded by E. H. Cabaniss, in 1887 to capitalize on the growth of industry and business in the rapidly growing Birmingham. A merger in 1920 produced Cabaniss, Johnston, Cocke & Cabaniss, and “Cabaniss” has been a prominent name in Alabama legal circles ever since. Striving to provide the highest level of client service and legal counsel has always been and continues to be the cornerstone of the firm. Cabaniss is dedicated to working with clients to help them achieve their business goals and overcome their most critical legal challenges. Building on its rich history and its focus on providing excellence in client service, the firm continues to uphold its reputation for outstanding legal results. Cabaniss’ commitment to excellence, combined with a forward-thinking approach to each engagement, allows it to provide legal advice that is insightful and efficient and allow its lawyers to devise the best individualized business and litigation strategy for each matter. Clients rely on Cabaniss to deliver the counsel and insight needed to win complex and challenging disputes and close significant business transactions.
