David Hughes graduated from The University of Alabama in 1991 and in 1994 from The University of Alabama School of Law. Upon graduation from law school, he joined the firm of Smith, Spires, and Peddy in Birmingham, Alabama, where he litigated cases in state and federal courts.

David’s practice concentrates on litigation seeking to vindicate the rights of individuals against companies who wronged them, specifically including wage and overtime claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and similar state wage and employment laws. These lawsuits are brought both as individual cases on behalf of one or more workers as class/collective actions on behalf of groups or large numbers of similarly situated workers.
