Zander Carrie is an experienced trial attorney and associate at Polson & Polson Law Firm in Birmingham, AL. Before joining the firm, Zander worked as a Deputy District Attorney in Alabama’s 10th Judicial Circuit. He handled many serious felony charges including capital murder, child sex crimes, drug trafficking cases, and DUI fatalities. Zander gained valuable insights and knowledge from his time at the DA’s office which helps him advise and represent clients who fall under the threat of prosecution.

While in graduate school, Zander decided his oral and written advocacy skills would be put to better use as a criminal defense lawyer. He graduated from the University of South Carolina’s School of Law in 2019 and immediately moved back to Birmingham to practice law as a trial attorney in his beloved hometown. Zander is a creative, zealous trial attorney who continues to refine his practice through further education. In March of 2024, Zander attended the nationally acclaimed “Trial Lawyers College” in Tulsa, Oklahoma, working with incredible lawyers and professional psychodramatists from across the country to develop new trial methods and techniques.

Outside of the office and courtroom, Zander is a passionate soccer fan and advocate for the soccer community in Birmingham. He previously coached competitive teams at Homewood Soccer Club and holds numerous coaching licenses from the United States Soccer Federation.

In his free time, Zander enjoys running long-distance races, cooking at home for his family, watching all Crimson Tide sports, and reading novels written by his favorite author – Haruki Murakami. Zander and his family are members of Ascension Episcopal Church in Vestavia Hills.

Client Reviews
Whitney Polson is a no-nonsense attorney who delivered exactly what he said he would on my case...thank you so much sir...I would definitely recommend anyone facing a DUI to retain this man. D.B.
If you are looking for an attorney I must recommend Mark Polson of Polson & Polson. My case was successfully moved from a February to a December court date and was dismissed. I am extremely please with the way this firm handled the case and was able to secure the dismissal. Thank you again to Polson & Polson for your professionalism and knowledge that we needed for this situation. Best Regards to all. Julie C.
Wow! I never could have hoped for our lawyer to work as fast as he did but Whitney was lightning fast! Very attentive to the details, never left me hanging along the journey-I used online reviews in choosing him and now I want to pass that on-if you need a lawyer (ours was a traffic court case with complications), I HIGHLY recommend this firm!
