HGD is excited to welcome three new law clerks to our Birmingham office.
Lidia Batista joins us as a clerk working in our Mass Tort Area. She has lived in South Georgia since September of 1995 after she arrived from her native country of Cuba. She is fluent in both English and Spanish. She received her Bachelor of Arts in History from Valdosta State University. She worked in the probation field for over eleven years. She is currently a second-year law student at Cumberland School of Law. When not in school she enjoys traveling and spending time with her dogs, some of which are rescues.
Anna Dennis is a law clerk working in our Mass Torts Area. She is currently a third-year student at Cumberland School of Law where she serves as the Chief Justice of Cumberland’s Moot Court Board and is a returning member of Cumberland’s ABA moot court team. She is a native of Birmingham, Alabama and a graduate of The University of Montevallo where she majored in Political Science. When she isn’t working on things for law school, Anna enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and two “mean” cats named Jasper and Josephine.
Blair Mercer is a law clerk working in our Mass Tort Area. He is completing his second year of law school at the Cumberland School of Law. In addition to his law degree, Blair is studying towards his MBA at Samford’s Brock School of Business. He is a native of Lexington, Kentucky and a graduate of the University of Alabama where he majored in American Studies. He is a huge fan of the Crimson Tide and Kentucky Wildcats, but is humbled every Sunday cheering for the Cleveland Browns. When he isn’t working on things for law school, Blair is either working at Cahaba Brewing or playing with his German Shepherd, Henry.
Welcome to the team!
