On Tuesday, Senator-Elect Tommy Tuberville named Attorney Tom Kelly of Clayton, Alabama, as the legal counsel for his transition team.
Kelly has been a close legal advisor to Senator-Elect Tuberville throughout the campaign.
“Tom Kelly will be an outstanding legal advisor for our transition team.
“Tom has been instrumental in the operations of our campaign since the beginning and led a successful team of lawyers from all over the State that ensured a fair and smooth running election,” said Tuberville.
Kelly is a small-town lawyer who has had a diverse legal practice in Clayton since he was admitted to the bar in February 2001.
He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Auburn University in 1997 and completed his Juris doctorate with a degree from the Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery in 2000.
He is a graduate of the Alabama Leadership Initiative Program sponsored by Leadership Alabama.
Tuberville announced his transition chairman and committee, which will assist the Senator-Elect in transitioning to serving, late last week.
