Knoxville Attorneys Helping Tennessee Clients

Whether your concerns involve a contested divorce, any other family law issue, a serious personal injury, or a case of legal malpractice — when you first talk to us, you'll be talking to an experienced lawyer.

What's unique about this is that if you decide to hire our firm and we agree to take your case, the lawyer you talk with is the lawyer who will perform the legal work and actually represent you in any negotiations or court proceedings. That's not how it always works at other law firms.

In fact, prospective clients at law firms will often talk to an experienced partner initially, be convinced to hire the firm and find out later that much of the work on their case has been handed off to attorneys with much less experience. We don't think that's right and it won't happen here.

We encourage you to learn more about our attorneys by reading the brief bios provided below.
