Mallory explains, “I travel to surrounding circuits for cases. I work primarily in Coosa, Clay, Tallapoosa, Talladega, and Elmore counties. My favorite part of having my own law firm in Coosa County is that I get to help so many people in the place that helped make me who I am today. I am forever grateful for the education I received from our school system and the continued support of the people of Coosa County.
“Prior to coming back to Rockford to open my own firm, I represented women across the country that were diagnosed with ovarian cancer due to their use of J&J’s baby powder. I started my office in Rockford in September 2019. I handle Family Law matters such as divorce, child custody, paternity, and child support; Criminal Defense; Probate matters such as Wills, Trusts, Probate of Estates, Administrations of Estates; Power of Attorneys; Guardianship and Conservatorships; and Juvenile Dependency and Delinquency Cases; as well as Personal Injury Cases.”
