On May 3, Watkins & Eager will host a reception at the Grand Bohemian Hotel to celebrate the firm’s expansion and opening of its Birmingham office. The Birmingham office of Watkins & Eager opened in September 2017 when Birmingham attorneys H. Lanier Brown II, David L. Brown Jr., J. Patrick Strubel, and Emily Slay joined the firm.  While Watkins & Eager chose experienced trial counsel with broad experience to launch its Birmingham office, the firm plans to expand the Birmingham office into a multi-disciplinary practice.  Established in 1895, Watkins & Eager PLLC is a full-service, diversified law firm. The firm's legal services include extensive real estate, banking, corporate and business practices, as well as broad trial and appellate practices.  Presently, Watkins & Eager has offices in Jackson and Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and Birmingham, Alabama.
