A Message From Seth:


Following college, I took the law school entrance exam and scored in the top 10% of the nation. I was accepted by each law school I applied to, but after much prayer and deliberation with my family I opted for a full-paid academic scholarship to the University of Tennessee over Vanderbilt. My experience at UT was second to none. While still a student, I was granted a limited license to practice law by the Tennessee Supreme Court, as well as compete nationally in Washington, D.C. for mock trial competitions, and study International Law abroad in Sydney, Australia.

What do you say when people ask, “So, what’s your story?” Well, here’s what I tell them: 


I was raised “on the mountain” in Monterey, Tennessee. After high school, I enrolled in Tennessee Tech on the HOPE Scholarship. While at Tech, I joined honors and civic organizations, taking on leadership roles and expanding my horizons. Four years later I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 3.9 GPA in the highest ranks of my class.

After passing the bar, I returned home and opened my own practice. As an attorney, I have secured countless dismissals for my clients, taken the most serious criminal charges (A-Level Felonies 25-60 year sentence) to trial and won, fought all the way to the Tennessee Supreme Court - and won - changing Tennessee law statewide


I’ve learned what it is to be a professional; to fight for the people who place their trust and future in my hands. People always tell me, “Seth, I couldn’t see you doing anything else.” (I still haven’t figured out if that’s a compliment). But now that you know a little about me, Read My Reviews and get an idea of what I bring to the table for my clients, then call today so we can discuss your case. I want to know, “What’s your story?
