Local attorney James “Lynn” Perry has announced he will seek election to serve as Baldwin County Probate Judge in the upcoming primary.
“I am honored and humbled by the colleagues and friends who have encouraged me to seek this important position,” Perry said. “I want to provide the citizens of Baldwin County with the compassionate, fair and impartial consideration they deserve from their Probate Judge.”
A partner at Daniell, Upton and Perry, P.C. in Daphne, Perry said he believes his 29 years in law practice providing counsel to clients in areas such as contracts, wills and trusts, as well as real property matters, gives him the needed experience for the position.
Perry received his business degree from Mississippi State University and his law degree from Mississippi College School of Law. He is actively involved in the Baldwin County Bar Association and the Alabama State Bar Association where he also serves as a Bar Commissioner for the district.
Perry was selected as a Super Lawyer and is A-Rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating in legal ability and ethical standards. In addition, he is board certified in Civil Trial Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and in Civil Pretrial Practice Advocacy by the National Board of Civil Pretrial Practice Advocacy.
Perry and his wife, Angela, have two children, Cole and Ellie. They attend Spanish Fort United Methodist Church and are involved in numerous civic and locally-sponsored family activities.
