Two locations to serve you: 118 Public Square across from Old Courthouse in Gallatin, TN and Portland, TN. Serving all cities in Sumner County such as Portland, Gallatin, Hendersonville, Goodlettsville, Millersville, White House and Bethpage including surrounding cities like Lafayette and Lebanon. The cases we take are divorce, problems with Childrens Services, criminal defense like DUI, domestic assault, rape, sexual abuse, and child custody or visitation issues. Mediation services are done using a social work model (compassion) with law (what judges will permit). One reason to work with me is that I have a 24/7 listening ear policy. That means you can talk with me to reduce your anxiety even after hours, I charge you the same hourly rate as if it were during the normal work hours.
