DeWayne Pope


I have a passion for working with innovative entrepreneurs, creators, makers and small businesses. I've been in the legal and business worlds for more than 20 years. My goal is to combine my legal and business knowledge with your creative vision to build a business and focus on its growth. You're not running a traditional business; I'm not a traditional lawyer.

Before forming DeWayne Pope, LLC in 2006, I was a partner in a large Southeastern corporate law firm. While I represented Fortune 500 companies during my 12 years at my prior firm, most of my clients now are innovative entrepreneurs, creators, creative agencies, and small businesses. My clients look for, and we provide, practical, convenient legal services that allow them to do what they do best.

In addition to my 25 years of legal experience, I've also had opportunities to work in business, entrepreneurial programs, and non-profits:

  • Executive Manager, Red Mountain Law Group

  • COO, Select My Space

  • Business Manager, ReformUPilates, LLC

  • Acting Director of Business Growth, REV Birmingham

  • Managing Member, DP Business Consulting, LLC

  • Trainer Facilitator, Co.Starters business development program

  • Coach, SPARK program for Alabama Launchpad, Birmingham Business Alliance

  • President, Board of Directors, Elizabeth Perry Rushton Child Development Center

  • President, Board of Directors, Alabama Center for Law & Civic Education 

I also use my legal and business experience in the classroom. Since 2018, I have taught Employment Law to juniors and seniors at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Collat School of Business.
