With my experience in the corridors of the state legislature, I feel I have a good perspective on the dynamics of government in Tennessee and beyond. Clients need to know both the wide-angle view and the subtle nuances of the regulatory scheme on all levels. I try to bring that to the team of lawyers who serve our firm’s client.
