John M. Plunk

I was born and have lived most of my life in Athens, Alabama.  My father was a veterinarian in the Athens community for fifty plus year.  I made Athens my home and the place where I raised my two daughters.  My wife taught school for the City.  I have been practicing law in Athens since 1978.  It has been my great pleasure to work for and help thousands of people with their legal issues.  I have been fortunate to have been involved through my firm with jury verdicts and settlements totaling in excess of $100,000,000.  I have been practicing law for more than forty years in the areas of personal injury, probate, and real estate matters.
