Charles Potts - Briskman & Binion, PC


Charlie was born and reared in Mobile. He earned a B.A. in English Literature from The University of the South (Sewanee) (C’79) and his J.D. from Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law (1986). A member in good standing with the Alabama State Bar (1986) and the Mississippi State Bar (2004), Charlie has also been an active member of the Mobile Bar Association where he served as past chair of the Archives and History Committee and was instrumental in the publication of a history of the Mobile Bar titled Mobile’s Legal Legacy: 300 Years of Law in the Port City (Association Publishing Company 2008). He joined Briskman & Binion in 2010.


When not handling matters for his clients, Charlie enjoys history, focusing lately on the American Civil War, science, travel, sports, and the arts, particularly the Mobile Symphony.


He is married to the former Susan Lloyd of Mountain Brook, Alabama, and they have three daughters, Nolen, Haley and Deborah Jane. They attend Ashland Place United Methodist Church.


Charlie has extensive experience in jury, non-jury and appellate civil practice. He has personally tried to verdict in excess of 60 cases though out Alabama and Mississippi, in both state and federal courts, in a wide range of claims, including medical malpractice/long term care, insurance/bad faith, fraud, products liability, construction and transportation, premises and automobile liability and maritime and state law based personal injury/wrongful death matters, achieving a high degree of success on behalf of his clients. Like the other members of Briskman & Binion, Charlie enjoys an excellent reputation among the Mobile and Baldwin County Bench and Bar for providing aggressive, quality legal services.

Admitted to the 5th and 11th United States Courts of Appeal, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court, Mr. Potts has also served as first chair in oral arguments before the 11th Circuit as well as the Alabama Supreme Court. He is a registered mediator with the Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution and is regularly appointed as mediator by a number of Mobile County circuit judges to help litigants amicably resolve their claims to avoid the inherent costs and risks associated with taking matters to trial.
