He has been a bar commissioner representing the 15th Judicial Circuit since 2016 and has chaired and been a member of numerous committees and task forces, including the Alabama Lawyers Care Task Force, the Government Relations Liaison Committee, the Finance & Audit Committee, and the Lawyer Assistance Program Committee.

He is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, a Fellow of the Alabama Law Foundation, and regularly recognized by Best Lawyers in America.

Gibson's 28-year law career has been spent representing those who have been injured or mistreated. Advocating for and helping others through his work is deeply rooted in his upbringing.
