Mary Beth Mantiply grew up in Baldwin and Mobile Counties, graduating from Bishop Toolen High School and then Spring Hill College. After obtaining her Law Degree from the University of Alabama, she returned to practice law in Southern Alabama. This is where her roots are; roots that form the basis of a career and legal practice representing the community of Southern Alabama - her home.
Early in her career, Mary Beth practiced law in a firm of highly competent lawyers who primarily represented large insurance companies. There she learned from some of the best and brightest in the legal profession about how to prepare and try a case. She also saw what it meant to represent the little guy against big corporate interests, and how it's often the little guy who gets lost in the legal battle. On occasion, the “little guy” was a good-sized local business, but when litigating with a multi-national corporation or insurance company, they were still the little guy in comparison. These experiences helped her realize that she did not want to work for faceless corporations in far-away places; rather, her vision was to represent the local businesses and people she knew and grew up with. And so, in 1987 she opened her own Law Office, handling local legal issues in almost every area of civil practice—civil trials, appeals, business practice, probate, real estate, insurance issues and environmental.
Mary Beth’s career and legal passion have been shaped by several tragedies that occurred over the years. She personally witnessed the life-altering impacts that globally produced and distributed defective products, drugs and devices can have on families, friends, and neighbors. Lives were forever altered when a loved one became a quadriplegic due to a defectively designed GM Van; when another died due to a defective dialysis solution; and when three members of a local family died of hypothermia when their boat sank, due to a defective drain plate system. These and more cases prompted her to realize that she must also practice law beyond just the borders of Alabama to best serve her clients and obtain justice against those causing injuries and damage—no matter how far reaching the cause might be. Her practice today still serves individuals and businesses with local issues, some of whom have been loyal clients for over 30 years. In addition, she has been involved in litigation in jurisdictions across the Country for the past ten years. Under the “Services Provided” portion of this web site is a list of practice areas.
Mary Beth’s philosophy about client attorney relationships is deeply rooted in community. Often, the adverse party is represented by a veritable stable of lawyers and the amount of travel and documentary evidence makes it mandatory that other lawyers be enlisted to assist. In addition to Mary Beth, there are now two highly respected and experienced lawyers practicing in her Daphne office. She also maintains professional relationships with firms across the Country having similar values and points of view. Whether independently representing a client or teamed with other lawyers with specific expertise, her philosophy is to always put forth the very best efforts to represent her clients and obtain justice.
In her words, "Making a positive difference in my clients’ lives will always be my first and foremost goal."
