C. Brandon Sellers, III
For 24 years, Brandon has devoted his practice to helping people. His practice's fundamental philosophy is to treat each client the exact way that he would want to be treated if he were in that person’s situation. Over the past 24 years, Brandon has represented thousands of people and has made it a priority to be personally involved in each and every case that his office handles. He is conscientious and cares deeply for his clients, treating then as if they were his own family. He is client focused, sympathetic, and he values communication. However, at the same time, he is determined to be a savvy and driven attorney who protects his client's interest in any situation. His main focus at The Sellers Law Firm is Bankruptcy law and Social Security law.
Brandon was born in Houston, Texas, and moved to Greenville, Alabama at the age of six. He attended Butler County public schools and graduated from Greenville High School in 1986. After graduation, he attended Troy State University and graduated in 1989 with a B.S. in History and Math. While at Troy, Brandon was president of College Young Democrats and a Member of Delta Chi fraternity. Thereafter, he attended the University Of Alabama School Of Law and received his Juris Doctorate degree in 1993.
In 1993, he began working as an attorney for Allenstein & Associates in Gadsden, Alabama, and considers working for Myron Allenstein as one of his greatest learning experiences. In 1995, Brandon returned to Greenville to start his own practice. He quickly learned that starting his own practice would be one of the greatest professional challenges of his life.
Since 1993, Brandon has successfully represented people in many areas of law and has obtained millions of dollars for plaintiffs in personal injury actions. He has also represented hundreds of defendants in criminal cases, and obtained many not guilty verdicts in high profile cases that involved rape, robbery, and murder. Perhaps the greatest success in the area of criminal law has come while representing defendants in capital murder cases.
As his practice has evolved, he now devotes the majority of his practice to bankruptcy and Social Security. Brandon was an Alabama Education Association network attorney and represented teachers and school employees. He now has been elected to the Butler County School Board. The Sellers Law Firm is also still very active in representing individuals in Social Security, Bankruptcy, Educational and Criminal Law. Brandon takes a personal hand in being involved and being knowledgeable of each case that his office handles. Brandon has had the privilege of practicing law with his sister, Julie Sellers-Swann. Working with family has been very rewarding. When Brandon says that the Sellers Law Firm is truly family oriented, he means it. Each and every attorney and member of the staff is like family. Everyone celebrates together, and cries together. By being such a close knit office, the Sellers Law Firm is able to provide the same care for clients that they have for each other.
Brandon is the very proud father of three wonderful children, Mallory, Grace, and Carlin. Brandon and his family are members of First Baptist Church in Greenville where he serves on various church committees. He is an avid motorcycle rider and scuba diver. More than anything, the thing that gives him the greatest entertainment is his children.
Brandon is a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, the Alabama State Bar Association, and the Alabama Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. Brandon is admitted to practice before all Alabama State Courts, the Southern, Middle, and Northern Federal District Courts, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The Sellers Law Firm is also actively involved in the Alabama State Bar Volunteer Lawyers Program where they perform free legal work throughout the community.
