The Alabama Forestry Association (AFA) announced its endorsement of Chad Hanson for the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals. He is running for reelection for his second term.
“The Court of Civil Appeals is an important component of the state’s judiciary, especially for litigation affecting the forest industry. We have been blessed with a competent court and Judge Hanson has been a positive addition as he works through his first term,” said Chris Isaacson, President and CEO of AFA. “I am pleased, on behalf of our members, to announce our endorsement of Judge Hanson for a second term on the bench.”
Prior to Hanson’s election to the Court of Civil Appeals in 2018, he worked in private practice for 18 years in Alabama. His work was primarily representing businesses and individuals in civil and bankruptcy litigation.
Hanson earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Alabama in 1997. He went on to earn his Juris Doctor from the Mississippi College School of Law in 2000.
Hanson is married to Joy, and they have two daughters. They reside in Trussville, Alabama.
“I am humbled and honored to have earned the endorsement of our foresters, and the forest products industry,” said Hanson. “The membership of this great organization can rest assured that I will always uphold the constitution, I will never legislate from the bench, and I will enforce the law without fear or favor.”
Hanson is seeking reelection in the Primary Election on March 5, 2024.
