J. Jackson Brannon III
Associate Attorney
Expertise Overview

As an attorney working on Smith Freed Eberhard’s Construction and Development Group on Partner Paul Sheely’s team, Jackson has gained a wealth of experience. He has been involved with taking depositions of homeowners, general contractors, project managers, and engineers and recently worked on a lawsuit involving allegations related to the foundation installation at a single-family residence located in Washington County.

Jackson has attended multiple mediations to achieve pre-trial resolution of several construction defect cases. In addition, he has attended multiple site visits and destructive testing sessions with expert consultants to identify the scope of allegations against clients.

While working with the Construction and Development Group, Jackson has also been able to work alongside Partner John Kruetzer, and our Employment and Business Litigation team, to aid in conducting several client interviews to identify relevant facts and prepare client’s responses to Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) Complaints.
As a law student, Jackson spent a summer with the Alabama AG’s Office interning with the Constitutional Defense Section. He assisted construction defect attorneys with deposition preparation and researched issues such as “Daubert” challenges and voter ID laws in various states. He has also worked with the in-house counsel of a large construction firm, based out of Birmingham, AL.
