LAW PRACTICE

In January, 2016, after 25 years of practice in Mobile and South Alabama, I expanded my practice with the opening of The Law Firm of Michael M. Shipper, P.C., located in Suite 701 of the SunTrust Bank Building in Florence. The Firm continues to represent national retailers and banks, mid-level businesses, institutions and individuals in business affairs, contractual matters, commercial disputes, employment and personnel matters, banking affairs and related areas. The Firm retains a presence in Mobile, and maintains a practice in State and Federal Courts across Alabama and in the Southeast.

The Firm is currently welcoming new clients, including individuals, small and large businesses, and institutions in Florence and Northwest Alabama. The Firm will concentrate in the areas of business, contract, banking and employment matters and disputes.
