Strange, Former U.S. Senator and State Attorney General
Senator Luther Strange served as a U.S. Senator from 2017 – 2018, where he served the Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; Armed Services; Budget; and Energy and Natural Resources Committees, and was twice elected as the Attorney General for Alabama from 2011 – 2017.
As Alabama AG, he represented the state in some of its biggest cases in recent history, including successfully arguing an important First Amendment case, Lane v Franks, before the United States Supreme Court in 2014. Senator Strange also served as the court-appointed coordinating counsel for the Gulf Coast states in the historic Deepwater Horizon oil spill litigation. He personally tried the case that led to a landmark settlement agreement to compensate Alabama for both economic and environmental damages caused by that disaster. Under his leadership, Alabama received over $2 billion in compensation while saving Alabamaʼs citizens over $140 million in legal fees.
Before entering public service, Senator Strange was a partner with the law firm of Bradley Arant Rose & White LLP (now Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP). While at Bradley, he led the legal team that brought Hyundaiʼs first North American manufacturing plant to Alabama in 2002. Senator Strange also was a founding investor and organizer of Oakworth Capital Bank in Birmingham, Alabama where he continues to serve on the Board of Directors. Both in private practice and in government, Senator Strange was involved in financial services policy and enforcement matters.
Senator Strange received his BA from Tulane University in 1975. He received his JD from Tulane in 1979. He was inducted into the Tulane Law School Hall of Fame in 2016.
