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 from 1985 to 1988. She was a founder and Master Barrister of the local chapter of the American Inns of Court and has been recommended by Best’s Directory of Recommended Insurance Attorneys since 1986. Mary Beth served as an Administrative Judge for ADEM from 1993 to 1995. In 2012, Mary Beth obtained her first Circuit Court jury verdict in excess of $1,000,000 in the Baldwin County case of Moody v. United Nonwovens, LLC. This eight-day trial was a complex commercial litigation involving numerous 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 numerous local businesses, nonprofits and governmental entities in the BP litigation, both within the Class Settlement and directly against BP under the Oil Pollution Act.
In the aftermath of the devastation of Harvey, Irma and Maria, Mary Beth is starting to work with lawyers and adjusters in Florida, Texas and other states to help devastated businesses of all kinds--restaurants, corporate headquarters, banks, medical facilities, schools and colleges, marinas, water parks, amusement parks--and homeowners 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. Contact Mary Beth to guide you through the claims process and assist you in preventing these natural disasters from becoming financial disasters, too.
