Fred L. Clements, Jr.

Fred Clements joined Webb & Eley as an associate in 2008. Fred was ten years into a career in information technology, where he worked as a programmer, database administrator and data warehouse developer, when he decided to pursue an advanced degree to further his career options. He chose to work toward a law degree, seeking the broader range of options such a program offered over a MBA or Master’s degree. While doing so, he discovered an interest in litigation that led him to make a permanent change in his career path.

Fred maintains his ties to the information technology world through the legal areas of e-discovery and privacy issues. However, his primary focus is on governmental regulation and litigation. He appears regularly in federal court working on cases involving the Fourth and Eighth Amendments. He also handles land use and billboard litigation involving the First and Fourteenth Amendments.

Fred is married and has one child. He attends First United Methodist Church in Montgomery.
