Mallory Combest serves as Counsel in the firm’s Financial Services Litigation Practice Group. For over seven years prior to joining Burr, Mallory served as a law clerk for the United States District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. During this time, she clerked for both the Honorable Susan Russ Walker, for whom she was the career clerk, and the Honorable Paul W. Greene. Because of this experience, Mallory has an insider’s knowledge of the federal court system and possesses a strong understanding of both federal civil and criminal law. Mallory draws upon her many years of experience working at the side of federal judges when helping clients develop strategies for efficient, successful resolution of litigation.

Before joining the District Court, Mallory worked in boutique litigation firms that specialize in municipal defense. This prior litigation experience, which included representing municipalities, private companies, insurers, and financial institutions, allowed Mallory to hone her written and oral advocacy skills in both state and federal courts. She has a broad range of subject matter familiarity, having regularly and successfully defended clients against claims of alleged civil rights, labor and employment, and financial law violations.

Mallory is a fierce advocate for her clients and relies on the skills she cultivated when competing on the University of Alabama’s award-winning policy debate team.

Outside of work, Mallory enjoys volunteering with two Alabama Black Belt-based arts organizations she helped create and chasing her two elementary-age children.
