Trudy has represented me and several of my clients. She is on my A-List for attorneys, and that is a short list. I know from personal conversations that she is well-respected by her peers and judges alike. I always felt she had my best interest and that of my children at heart. She did not engage in needless banter that runs up both sides legal cost. When the other side's attorney tried to run dow rabbit holes and run up billing Trudy keep things on point. In the end, each of Trudy's arguements held up and we prevailed on the majority of issues at hand. When the case was over, my former spouse remarked that she wished she had used Trudy for her attorney instead of hers. Trudy is practical and knows the law. She is execellent at seeking a reasonable solution to problems, but is willing to go to court if necessary. Her work is timely and outstanding. Her billing rates and what she bills on is very reasonable. My clients who have used her have been happy with her professionalism and work. I recommend her without hesitation.
I am a father of 2 currently undergoing a divorce. Trudy has worked tirelessly for me. She has been available on the weekends and after hours. She is direct and to the point. She does not waste time with superfluous information. She wants the pertinent facts to the case so she can do her best in representing your needs and concerns. I am fighting to gain custody of my 2 children. Trudy is fighting for that and she wants me to receive everything else I am entitled to after almost 20 years of marriage. She keeps me focused and on track. She has stayed in close contact with me as we continue to move forward with this whole process. I would also include she seems genuinely invested in clients. She is fearless! Her assistant Rebecca has also done an outstanding job!
This review is long overdue. I hired Trudy a couple of years ago for a DUI and she truly delivered. I was stressed-out and worried about how a conviction would impact my future. Trudy was straight with me and was extremely aggressive in pursuing a deal with the DAs office. I got a great settlement and could not been happier. She answered all my questions, prepared me for the worst case scenario, then delivered the best case scenario. And not only that, she let me call her on her personal cell phone any time I wanted about my case. Who does that? An AWESOME attorney!! If you want an attorney who is knowledgeable, aggressive, and is compassionate towards her clients Trudy is your girl!!! Thank you Trudy!!!
My experience with Trudy was painful and total failure. She is very distracted and not focus. The majority of her work is reactive, impulsive and fragmented. It was clear to me that her ability to plan or strategies for my case is not to have one. She accommodated the opponent attorney on the cost of my best interest as a client. In the course of 3 months, Trudy did not advance my case in any meaningful or significant way to deserve over $3000.00 legal fees. I never felt that she was looking after my best interest or that my case was a priority to her. She requests meeting with no agendas or objectives.
I hired Trudy after attempts for a non-litigated divorce failed. She came into the middle of my case and worked hard with me and the opposing counsel to get our case to a good mediator and get it finalized. She and Kim communicated with me throughout the process, to ensure that deadlines were met and documents collected as we moved through a long discovery process towards mediation. In mediation, Trudy was a true advocate and helped fight for my rights in a difficult case. I would recommend her as a professional, caring lawyer in the Greater Nashville Area.
Trudy is an awesome Lawyer. When I went through my rough time she was there start to finish. I am a impenitent person and trudy was able to harness me and help me understand everything that was going on and why it was happening. Strong suite for trudy is negotiations when trudy gets in the room she owns it and typically get s what she wants. I would recommend trudy to anybody Great Lady!!!!!
I am a Father of a 8 year old child...I have been divorced since 2011 and from that time up until October 2014 I have been tied up in litigation. I retained Trudy about 9 months ago. In that 9 months she was successful at domesticating my divorce decree from out of state to Davidson county as well as getting joint custudy changed to Sole custody for me. Today I enjoy knowing I have complete control of my childs future and im not sure my case would have turned out so succesful had I used another attorney. I ended up with a much better parenting plan than I expected . My case was extremely complicated due to moving from another state and the fact that im the Father yet Trudy assured me she would be able to win this case. I couldnt be happier with the outcome of my case.
Ms Bloodworth handled my divorce with impathy, understanding, and a professional attitude. She was responsive to all of my needs and questions, even making herself available after working hours and week ends.The divorce went through with NO hitches and the billing was tremendously fair. I highly recommend her.
Trudy, and her assistant Kim, have shown 0 care or urgency for our custody case. We retained her for $2500 4 1/2 months ago and have gotten NOWHERE in our case. We have nothing to show for our money except an outlandish bill, ALL of which is at Trudy's rate of $250/ hr when Kim is doing most of the work, albeit not well. They have already burned through our retainer fee and have done nothing to earn it except file 2 documents and read (and not respond to) our emails requesting updates. Please do not waste your time with these people. She talked a big game until we paid her, then she all but disappeared.
I highly recommend Trudy. She is down to earth and a tough lawyer. She knows how to fight for you!
She helped me in a divorce case and I was very pleased with the outcome. She treats her client with dignity and respect and was there for you whenever you needed her. In my eyes Trudy is the best!
