We are humbled not only to have Shunnarah as a client and part of the Crisp family, but we’re also elated to share that he will be taking the virtual stage at the EVOLVE Summit this June 24-25!
“They asked me what my work hours are. I said ‘eyes open to eyes closed.’”
Alexander Shunnarah will be unlocking the vault to share some of his top secrets that have led him to becoming one of the most successful law firm owners in America. Read on to learn more about what he’ll bring to the EVOLVE Summit.
Who is Alexander Shunnarah?
Back in 2001, Shunnarah began his firm with just one legal assistant. While he has now become a national force to be reckoned with, his beginnings as a small operation are as humble as any.
Shunnarah was born in Birmingham, Alabama to immigrant parents. He graduated with a BS in political science and sociology from the University of Alabama, and went on to receive his law degree from Birmingham School of Law.
After graduating and starting his own firm, Shunnarah worked hard to grow his business. Between 2005-2009, he picked up speed with some large railroad cases that brought in millions of dollars. The rest is history.
Over the years, Shunnarah went from “handing out business cards to family and friends and fellow church members” to being the most ubiquitous legal brand of the Southern United States — boasting billboards plastered with the Shunnarah name lining the well-traveled interstates of Alabama.
Now, Shunnarah’s billboard fame has spread widely, even making it into the realm of internet memes:
The credit is well-deserved. His large-scale advertising strategy now boasts over 2,000 billboards. This unparalleled billboard empire across the state and the southeast has, in part, carried him to national prominence.
With over $800 million recovered for clients, 20 offices nationwide, and 70+ attorneys trying cases in every state — Shunnarah doesn’t skimp on marketing. In addition to hosting a powerhouse team, Shunnarah was named Master of Marketing by The National Trial Lawyer Magazine in 2016. His current slogan, “Call Me, Alabama!” is now being adapted with his growing presence in cities across the country.
Apart from the reputation he’s built for effective marketing campaigns, Shunnarah is now also known as an entrepreneur and thought leader. His skillful manner of entrepreneurial law firm ownership is highly coveted by legal professionals everywhere.

He sat down with Crisp Founder & CEO Michael Mogill to discuss what he does to keep his fingers on the pulse of his business and why he’s always ready to adapt and improve his marketing strategy.
Join him to take a deep dive into calculated financial risks in the legal landscape and talk about when it’s time to go all-in on advertising and marketing your law firm.
