About Me

Established in 1992, Farrar & Bates is a comprehensive litigation firm concentrating on trial and appellate practice in state and federal court, as well as administrative, arbitration, and mediation proceedings.

The firm regularly defends Tennessee municipalities, municipal officers, and municipal employees in the practice areas of employment discrimination and retaliation, premises liability, general tort liability, workers’ compensation, wage and hour disputes, police liability, civil rights, land use, zoning and planning, contract disputes, and inverse condemnation.

In addition, Farrar & Bates regularly consults with municipalities regarding the drafting of municipal ordinances and employment issues such as employee rights and the hiring, training, discipline, supervision, and termination of employees.

The firm also represents municipalities at the administrative level by investigating charges of discrimination and/or retaliation, preparing responses to requests for information from and participating in on-site investigations conducted by the Tennessee Human Rights Commission and/or Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and defending claims for unemployment benefits.

  • Marcos M. Garza

    I am pleased to be the first to recommend, without reservation, this excellent lawyer. I have know Aaron for almost a decade now and have had the opportunity to know him as an attorney and as a person. He is extremely knowledgable and I often seek Aaron's assistance when I want to talk through a complex legal issue. Aaron's commitment to knowing both the facts and the law of each and every case creates outstanding results for his clients. If I had a loved one with a legal problem or issue in the greater Nashville area, I would hire Aaron and his firm.
