Since mid-September, Justice Sellers’ campaign has raised over $142,000 from 170 unique contributors across Alabama.

“Over the last several months, I have been able to visit with many of my fellow lawyers and business leaders around the state,” Sellers said. “Alabamians recognize the need for stability on our highest court, and I am gratified by the support I continue to receive.”

Sellers has a bachelor’s degree from Hillsdale College and a law degree the University of Alabama School of Law.  He has a Masters of Law and Letters in Taxation from New York University.

Sellers has over 28 years working in private practice in Montgomery.  Sellers is a member of the Alabama Bar Association, the District of Columbia Bar Association, and has been admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the United States Tax Court, and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
