Our Team

We recognize the importance of a strong attorney-client relationship and build that relationship through constant and clear communication with our clients, knowledge of our client’s goals and our personal attention in attaining those goals. Our clients stay informed and receive regularly updated information concerning the status of their matter. They enjoy the peace of mind that comes with professional, experienced representation and exceptional client service.

Our lawyers’ roots run deep in Murfreesboro and Middle Tennessee as evidenced by the active part we play in the community we represent, holding leadership roles in community groups, charitable organizations, civic associations, bar associations and local governments. Our strong sense of community is reflected in the personal interest we take in each client.
