Constangy partner Dana Thrasher was featured in the Birmingham Bar Association’s Spring 2024 Bulletin in a column asking members what advice they would give to their 21-year-old self.

“My advice to my 21-year-old self would be to always be surrounded by people who make you want to be your best. Learn from everyone and every situation. Remember that being happy and true to yourself is key to your success. Work hard but have fun and enjoy life,” Dana says.
