MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Attorney General Luther Strange has announced the appointment of a new Solicitor General after the former Solicitor General John Neiman returned to private practice.

Andrew Lynn Brasher will supervise the state's handling of appellate litigation in state and federal courts, and will advise the Attorney General on legal and policy issues.

"I am delighted that Andrew has agreed to continue serving the people of Alabama as our Solicitor General," said Attorney General Strange. "He is an outstanding legal scholar who conducts himself with utmost integrity and dedication to the rule of law. He comes to this office with a distinguished background of excellence in legal and public service and we are fortunate to have him with us."

Brasher graduated from Harvard Law School in 2006, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review and received Victor Brudney prize for the best paper on corporate law. He graduated with honors in 2002 from Samford University with a B.A. in International Relations. 

Before joining the Attorney General's Office, Brasher was an attorney at the law firm of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings in Birmingham.  Previously, he served as a law clerk to Judge William H. Pryor Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, himself a former Alabama Attorney General.  In 2011, Brasher was recognized as an Alabama SuperLawyers Rising Star.
