More Than a Bird
Scared, abused and taken to the limit of a person’s capacity to endure tragedy, Elizabeth “Liz” Huntley reveals the perils of a childhood that would lead most to a broken life or premature death. Liz, now a successful attorney at a prestigious southern law firm, recounts her journey from unimaginable darkness to radiance thanks to the early intervention of teachers, a pastor and caring people, strategically placed in her life by God. Decidedly unembellished, inherently poignant, More Than a Bird gives a glimpse of horror yet leaves only hope. Through her life story, Liz proves that on the wings of God, there is no height she cannot reach.
Liz is a committed child advocate and a passionate litigation attorney. She practices law at Lightfoot, Franklin & White, LLC in Birmingham, Alabama and regularly serves as a motivational speaker for groups and organizations throughout the country. In addition to her corporate defense litigation practice, a significant portion of Liz' legal focus is spent representing and consulting with governmental and non-profit agencies that serve children and families. An inspirational leader, Liz actively participates in numerous civic and professional organizations. Much of her volunteer time is dedicated to expanding high quality Pre-K to all four year olds in Alabama. Appointed by the Governor of Alabama, Liz also serves on the Governor's Task Force on Prevention of Sexual Abuse in Children.
Liz earned her law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law where she now serves as Chair of the Farrah Law Society Board of Trustees. She received her undergraduate degree from Auburn University, where she is a member of the Auburn University Board of Trustees. Liz and her husband Tony have three children.
