WAD Shareholders Recognized for Pro Bono Service


Birmingham, AL – White Arnold & Dowd P.C. shareholders J. Mark White and Hope S. Marshall were recently recognized by Alabama Appleseed for their work in helping secure the release of Michael Schumacher. As Appleseed noted, Mr. Schumacher “was condemned to die in prison at age 24 after a robbery conviction in which he stood lookout with a broken pool cue. He was sentenced to a mandatory life imprisonment without parole under Alabama’s Habitual Felony Offender Act based on three minor priors, two of which occurred during a single incident when he was 17 years old. Last year, Appleseed won Michael’s release after 35 years of incarceration.” Mr. Schumacher shares his story here.
