OVERVIEW

About William E. Scully Jr.
Bill Scully has practiced law in Mobile and Baldwin Counties since 1991. He is a graduate of Indiana University (BA 1979, French and Political Science) and Washington and Lee University Law School (1982). Not long after law school he joined the U.S. Army as a Judge Advocate (JAG Officer) and served on active duty until moving to South Alabama. ?As an Assistant District Attorney in Mobile from 1991 until 1996, Bill handled some of the most serious cases on the docket, from complex drug conspiracies to capital murder prosecutions. He opened his private practice in 1996 and his office has been located on the same neighborhood since that time. Bill continues his military service on a part-time basis as an Army Reservist. He holds the rank of Colonel and is assigned as the Staff Judge Advocate for the 377th Theater Sustainment Command in New Orleans. In a position similar to that of a District Attorney, Bill is the principal legal advisor to the two-star commander of an organization comprised of over 35,000 soldiers throughout the eastern half of the country. In 2003, Bill was mobilized for 18 months and deployed to the Mid-East in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In the private practice, Bill works in all of the practice areas that are described elsewhere on this website. Bill is particularly interested in defending criminal cases in which DNA evidence is used and in Post-Conviction Relief under Rule 32 of the Alabama Rules for Criminal Procedure. He has also been successful in advocating on behalf of our clients before the appellate courts of Alabama: Giardina v. Giardina, 39 So. 3d 204 (Ala.Civ.App. 2009), and a second one: Pinzone v. Papa's Wings, Inc., 72 So. 3d 620 (Ala. Civ.App. 2010) Bill and his wife, Donna (a Registered Nurse who also works part-time for the firm), have been married for over 33 years. In addition to son, Liam, they have two daughters, Elizabeth and Christina. Bill is a long-time member of the Eastern Shore Sertoma Club
