Steven W. Couch

Hoover, Alabama

Steve attended the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. During law school, he was a Region V Champion in the ABA National Trial Advocacy Competition. Steve graduated from Cumberland receiving his Juris Doctorate degree in 1998. He has also received the Medal for Excellence in Advocacy from the American College of Trial Lawyers.

During his career Steve has handled countless cases across Alabama, the southeast and nationally. He has settled and/or tried to verdict cases ranging from Medical Malpractice and Products Liability to Insurance Fraud, Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, and Premises Liability. Each year since 2011, Steve has been selected as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers.

Steve is extremely grateful that he gets the chance to be an advocate for people who have been injured or wronged but are not able to speak for themselves. He enjoys really getting to know his clients and their families. "I think the better you know someone, the better job you are able to do as that person's lawyer. At the end of the day, we are not only someone's attorney, but many times we are also the only ones who end up counseling families during a time of loss. In today's world, I believe ministering to the individual's needs is an often overlooked part of representing a person." To this day, Mr. Couch remains involved and in touch with many of the families and individuals he has represented over the years.

Steve lives in Hoover with his wife of twenty-three years, Lori, and their four children Caroline, Griffith, Brody and Cooper. He and his family are members of Fullness Christian Fellowship church in Vestavia Hills Alabama.
