Children can testify in custody matters about where they’d prefer to live when they are 12 or older.

Our attorneys can help you avoid the consequences of creating ambiguous, incomplete, or conflicting wills that undermine your wishes and the future of your loved ones. Without the right estate planning lawyer helping you through the process, disputes may arise after your death. Your will may be contested or the distribution of an estate can be challenged. But with the right estate attorney, an estate plan is a sensible way to prevent future conflict among your nearest and dearest.


Family Law

While the laws governing divorce, child custody and support, and related family law matters are well established in Tennessee, cases are generally decided according to their unique facts. Our legal team can identify and cast light on significant information that can make a difference in preserving your rights and interests, and in obtaining a favorable result.


Estate Planning

The future is uncertain for you and your family. But by planning for the unexpected and unavoidable, you can alleviate any issues that can arise once you are gone. With the help of our estate planning lawyers, not only can you create a will, set up a trust, or appoint a power of attorney, but you can set a business succession plan and preserve your family’s wealth. Don’t leave these decisions to the last minute. Now is the time to plan for your future and the future of your family.


Probate Litigation

Careful planning and preparation are essential to ensuring your property will be distributed according to your wishes. Our probate lawyers are skilled at executing the documents needed by individuals near Nashville or elsewhere in Tennessee. We are here to assist in the administration of your trust plan. We can serve personal representatives, trustees, and executors during the process of probate and trust administration.


Personal Injury

A personal injury is an injury to someone’s body, mind, or emotions caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness. If you were in either an auto accident, a slip and fall on commercial property, or injured by a faulty product, you may have a claim against the other party or parties for financial compensation. Lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills may all be recoverable if another individual or entity is found to be legally liable for your injuries. Our lawyers are experienced in presenting a claim of negligence in a persuasive way.
