Balch Welcomes Attorney Alison Guider Geter

Balch & Bingham is delighted to announce that Alison Guider Geter has joined the firm as an attorney in the Litigation Practice.

Based in Balch’s Gulfport, Miss. office, Alison represents a wide variety of clients in all aspects of civil litigation. Alison has extensive experience with the procedural and discovery aspects of federal litigation, having spent the past three years clerking for United States Magistrate Judge John C. Gargiulo prior to joining Balch. During her clerkship Alison worked on a wide variety of civil discovery matters, appeals from the Social Security Administration and dispositive motions in Section 1983 litigation. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome Allison. Her prior clerkship equipped her with the experience and skills to provide excellent counsel to our clients. I’m confident Alison will thrive as she works with both the firm’s Litigation Practice and Gulfport team,” said Ricky Cox, managing partner of the Gulfport office.

Alison graduated magna cum laude from the University of Mississippi School of Law, where she was the Mississippi Law Journal -Executive Articles Editor and a member of the Moot Court Board. 

Balch’s Litigation Practice includes more than 90 attorneys who handle a wide variety of disputes, covering almost every area of the law. Balch attorneys regularly serve as national and regional counsel, representing clients in federal and state courts across the country, the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Courts of Appeals. A key strength of the practice is Balch’s work in heavily regulated industries including energy, financial services and healthcare. Chambers USA recently included the firm’s Mississippi Litigation Practice in its 2021 guide as a leading practice in the state.

Since June Balch has added four new attorneys to its Litigation Practice. In addition to Alison the firm welcomed Paul Bagley and Chezare Palacios in Jacksonville, FL and Shalyn McKitt in Birmingham, AL.
