Mary Beth Mantiply has served the legal needs of the people, businesses, nonprofits and governmental entities in South Alabama since her graduation from the University of Alabama School of Law. For more than 30 years, Mary Beth has successfully represented hundreds of clients in civil cases, both as plaintiffs and defendants.
Mary Beth served as the attorney for the Mobile County Commission and the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office. She was a founder and Master Barrister of the local chapter of the American Inns of Court, has been recommended by Best’s Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys and has served as an Administrative Judge for ADEM. In 2012, Mary Beth obtained a Circuit Court jury verdict for $1,250,000 in the Baldwin County case of Moody v. United Nonwovens, LLC. This was a complex eight-day trial involving issues of cross-collateralized loans, fraud, mortgages, UCC documentation, insurability issues and stockholder rights.
In 2015, Mary Beth obtained a $7.1 million dollar award for the City of Mobile for its damages arising out of the 2010 BP Oil Spill. The City of Mobile's Mayor, Sandy Stimpson, said, “I’m real excited about it, I think it’s the largest settlement that any municipality has received along the Gulf Coast.” Mary Beth successfully pursued claims for hundreds of local businesses, nonprofits and governmental entities in the BP litigation, both within the Class Settlement and directly against BP under the Oil Pollution Act.
Presently, Mary Beth is active in the Opioid Litigation
against the manufacturers and distributors of opioids, and the pill-mill doctors and pharmacies on behalf of governmental entities and other public and private entities and nonprofits affected by the Opioid addiction crisis. This crisis is, according to the Director of the C.D.C., “…the only aspect of American Health that is getting significantly worse.”
In the aftermath of Harvey, Irma and Maria, Mary Beth is working with lawyers and public adjusters in Florida, Texas and other areas to help devastated businesses of all kinds--restaurants, farms, condominium associations, medical facilities, schools, colleges, and others get back on their feet and receive the full extent of all of the coverage to which they are entitled--loss of use, business interruption, full replacement costs and Code upgrades, debris removal, remediation, and more. Don't let your insurance company stonewall or short-change you in its rush to close your claim with the lowest payment possible or an outright denial.
