ROGER K. FUSTON
Roger Fuston is a partner of the law firm of Fuston, Petway & French, LLP, in Birmingham, Alabama. Mr. Fuston graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering in 1984. He received his Juris Doctorate degree from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in 1988. After graduating from law school, Mr. Fuston entered a federal clerkship for a district judge in the Middle District of Alabama. Then he entered a private practice in Birmingham, where he devoted his practice to assisting injured individuals, families of deceased victims, and small businesses and obtaining justice for wrongs done to them. He has been a trial lawyer for 24 years. Born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Mr. Fuston is the son of a labor union lawyer. He worked with unions throughout high school and college. During this time, Mr. Fuston lost his brother in a construction accident, and that fueled his desire to attend law school and help people. Given his personal experiences and his background in industrial engineering, Mr. Fuston’s practice heavily involves industrial and construction accidents, products liability, and workers’ compensation. He empathizes with individuals and families during their time of crisis and is committed to personally assisting them throughout the entire case. Mr. Fuston has two children, Sarah and Sam. In his free time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, cycling, and spending time with his children.
