Danny Feldman to Represent Bike Law Alabama

We are thrilled to announce that Danny Feldman is back in the ranks of Bike Law to represent Bike Law Alabama. Our work of protecting the rights of bicyclists is critical in Alabama, one of the last states with contributory negligence.

Meet Danny Feldman of Bike Law Alabama

Danny Feldman Alabama Bicycle Lawyer

Danny Feldman has been riding his bike since 1987, the same time he began practicing law in Washington D.C. before moving back to his home state of Alabama. Over the years he has been an active cyclist participating in numerous century bicycle rides such as the Cheaha Challenge, 3 Mountain 3 State, the Cherola Challenge, and even a couple of double century efforts. He routinely has ridden more than 5,000 miles a year for the past 25 years. He began representing injured cyclists more than a decade ago after two of his close friends were seriously injured during a recreational bike ride.

Danny has been actively fighting for the rights of bicyclists in Alabama both in and out of the courtroom. While he focuses his practice in Birmingham, he has represented numerous cyclists across the state from Mobile to Huntsville winning cases despite Alabama’s contributory negligence law.

In 2015, he joined other cycling advocates in helping defeat the efforts of two local city councilmen who attempted to prohibit cyclists from riding on certain streets within their city.

Representing Bicyclists Across Alabama

Since 2004, Danny has represented numerous cyclists across Alabama. An advocate for bicycling and bicyclists, he has been active in sponsoring numerous cycling events (like the Cheaha Challenge, among others) and has held leadership positions in organizations like Redemptive Cycles, Trips for Kids and  AlaBike.

If you have been in a crash or have cycling law questions within Alabama do not hesitate to contact Danny.

Bring Bike Law to Your Group or Club

We are passionate about sharing information about bicycle laws, group riding etiquette and how to protect yourself as a cyclist. If you would like someone from Bike Law to speak to your club please contact us.
