Our appellate practice team is among Tennessee’s most experienced and most successful.
Lawyers with extensive trial experience in Tennessee’s state and federal courts.

Business operations will continue and attorneys will be available to assist clients with their needs. In an effort to combat the spread of the virus, we will be following the recommendations of the WHO, CDC, and Governor Bill Lee by limiting business travel and practicing social distancing. Our office will have limited attorneys in the office, while other attorneys will work remotely. One staff member will be in the office to answer the phones and assist clients as needed from 9:00-4:00 each weekday. We are fully equipped and prepared to provide for all our clients’ needs without being in the office. If you need any assistance, do not hesitate to call the office or email the staff member or attorney you need. All staff and attorneys will be available by email during our regular business hours.

Harlan Dodson and Covington Dismukes have released the 2020 edition of their treatise Introduction to Estate Planning and Administration in Tennessee. Since its initial publication, the book has served as both textbook for students and an indispensable source of reference for attorneys throughout the state. Each year, Dodson and Dismukes revise the text to reflect developments in the law, particularly in the area of tax consequences. This year’s edition has been updated to reflect the recent SECURE ACT.
