also known as Tommy Bray, Tom Bray

About me

I am a Jackson, Tennessee native and graduate of Middle Tennessee State University.


I  began my legal career in the Rutherford County Chancery Court as a Deputy Clerk. I later served as law clerk to the Honorable J. Mark Rogers, Circuit Judge for the 16th Judicial District.


After leaving the Judge's office I worked in office of Bragg, Mansfield, and Stegall where I assisted with civil, criminal, and real property cases, while attending Nashville School of Law.


My current practice at Bennett, Michael & Bray is devoted to Divorce, Family Law, and Criminal Defense cases. I practice regularly in the Chancery, Circuit, Juvenile and Child Support Courts of Rutherford and surrounding Middle Tennessee counties.
