About Me

I am a native of Middle Tennesse, born in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. In 1999, I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a B.A. in History, and in 2002, I graduated from law school at the University of Memphis, where I received a J.D. at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law.  During law school, I served as a member of the University of Memphis Law Review and clerked for the Honorable Robert A. Lanier of the Circuit Court for Shelby County, Tennessee.


In 2006, I became a partner/member of  Batson Nolan, PLC which is an 18 member all purpose law firm located in Clarksville and Springfield, Tennesse.  


My practice includes: personal injury litigation; insurance defense; commercial and complex litigation,  and domestic/divorce litigation.  I am licensed to practice law in both Tennessee and Kentucky. My practice covers litigation throughout Tennessee and Kentucky at the trial and appellate courts levels, Supreme Courts, and Federal Courts of the Sixth Circuit.


I am a member of the Tennessee Bar Association; the Kentucky Bar Association; the Kentucky Justice Association; and the Montgomery County Bar Association.  I have published articles on Tennessee domestic/divorce law.  I am involved in the Clarksville community and various volunteer organizations including Rotary Club of Clarksville, Clarksville Young Professionals, and Rivers and Spires. I and my family are members of the First Presbyterian Church of Clarksville.


I welcome an opportunity to assist you with your legal needs.  Please contact me at:
