Brian Duncan, Jr.
Cunningham Bounds, LLC - Atlanta

Brian has been described by his peers as an “exceptionally talented top-tier lawyer,” who is “tenacious,” “hard-working,” and “conscientious.” Brian’s compassion for his clients forms the foundation of his practice, and he is devoted to helping them through some of the most difficult times imaginable — the loss of a loved one or coping with the new realities that accompany life-altering personal injuries.

Brian’s results speak for themselves and have earned him continued recognition by his peers as well as numerous legal organizations and publications. Brian has recovered tens-of-millions for his clients. Some of those results include:

Most recently, Brian was interviewed on PBS NewsHour about one of his cases that involved a highly dangerous power tool that has seriously injured dozens of shipyard workers.

From 2012 – 2020 Brian served on the Board of Governors for the American Association for Justice as one of only three representatives from Alabama. He is a member of the Alabama Association for Justice and the South Alabama Trial Lawyers Association. Brian is licensed to practice law in Alabama and Texas.
