Greenville’s Boyd named president of law foundation

The Alabama Law Foundation, a private nonprofit division of the Alabama Bar Association, elected Greenville native David Boyd of Balch & Bingham’s Montgomery office as its new president.

Boyd’s main goal as the foundation president will be to find the strengths and weaknesses of the foundation so that it may improve in the future.

Boyd’s outstanding leadership in legal associations and organizations led to his election. He served as chair of the Alabama Board of Bar Examiners, a member of the State Bar’s Board of Bar Commissioners as well as State Bar vice-president, and chair of the State Bar’s Disciplinary Commission. He is a Fellow of the Alabama Law Foundation and the American Bar Foundation.

Boyd has been regularly recognized in The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA: American’s Leading Lawyers for Business, and Alabama Super Lawyers.

He was also awarded the William D. “Bill” Scruggs Service to the Bar Award from the Alabama State Bar in 2006.
