Robert C. Alden: Attorney with Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson, LLP AV stamp icon
Attorney Awards


Robert Alden enjoyed a career as a commercial litigator for a number of years before he decided to focus on serving people who had been hurt, instead of defending wrongdoers and trying to protect insurance companies. So in 2001 he joined Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson, LLP and began representing plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits as well as plaintiffs in business disputes.

“I switched to plaintiff work from defense work because I like helping people with problems that often are the most significant problem in their lives and are beyond their ability to deal with on their own,” Alden says. “It feels good to help people in need like that, especially in the area of personal injury, because they’re people who have had their lives turned upside down.”

Alden’s trial work has earned him acceptance into two prestigious professional organizations, the American College of Trial Lawyers and the American Board of Trial Advocates. Lawyers can only be admitted into these groups by invitation and must meet rigorous requirements dealing not only with trial experience and ability, but also with civility and professionalism.
