More Information
For more than 30 years, LaBella Alvis’ passion has been going to court. However, if you ask her to tell you about her most fun experience as a lawyer, she’ll tell you it was learning how to parallel-park an eighteen-wheeler at the Mayflower Trucking School. The four-day school helped her understand the many factors that truckers have to consider when making split-second decisions on the roads, a unique experience that helps LaBella defend trucking cases.

In addition to handling trucking and aviation matters, LaBella has experience with professional liability, liquor liability and coverage cases. Her professional liability work includes hundreds of EEOC and employment liability claims, medical malpractice defense and construction/architect liability. LaBella brings an extra dimension to liquor liability claims due to her experience as a certified ABC Board vendor trainer.

Away from the office, LaBella is an avid horseback rider. She competes in hunter/jumper and dressage disciplines and has won many equestrian competitions, including finishing first in two divisions during the 2010 State championship.
