Before being appointed to the bench, Judge Brasher served as the Solicitor General of the State of Alabama. In this capacity, he argued in the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and the Alabama Supreme Court, tried cases in Federal and State courts, and won several “Best Brief Awards” from the National Association of Attorneys General. Before joining the Alabama Attorney General’s Office, Judge Brasher was in private practice, specializing in complex civil litigation and white-collar criminal defense.
