For more than a century, Cabaniss, Johnston, Gardner, Dumas & O'Neal LLP has served its clients primarily in the area of civil law. Founded in 1887, the firm conducts one of the oldest continuous law practices in Alabama.

The firm maintains full-service law offices in Birmingham and Mobile, the two largest cities and economic centers in Alabama. The strategic north-south location of our offices and their respective spheres of practice, give us an ongoing statewide presence.

Recognized as the oldest continuous law practice in Birmingham and one of the oldest continuous practices in Alabama, the firm of Cabaniss, Johnston, Gardner, Dumas & O'Neal LLP has a distinguished history. The origins of the firm, which began in Birmingham in 1887, can be traced back to the firm's first lawyer, E.H. Cabaniss, who left the small Alabama town of Union Springs to travel to Birmingham to capitalize on the growth of industry and business in the rapidly growing southern town. There he formed Cabaniss & Banks. A merger in 1920 produced Cabaniss, Johnston, Cocke & Cabaniss. "Cabaniss, Johnston" has been a familiar and respected name in Alabama legal circles ever since.
