About Me

After graduating from Hixson High School in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1989, Keith went on to study neurobiology as an Echols Scholar at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.  In 1992, Keith obtained a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction from the University of Virginia and returned to Tennessee to begin studying law at the University of Tennessee College of Law.  While in law school, Keith focused his studies on trial advocacy and contracts, actively served as a Knox County General Sessions Court mediator, worked in both the civil and criminal clinics offered by the law school and volunteered his time by helping local high school students with their mock trial programs.  In 1995, Keith obtained his Juris Doctorate and remained in Tennessee to begin the practice of law.


Keith's volunteer work with high school mock trial programs led him to begin the practice of law in Anderson County, Tennessee.  From 1995 to 2002, Keith worked for an Anderson County law firm practicing both civil and criminal litigation throughout twelve (12) East Tennessee counties.  In 2002, Keith formed his own law firm with offices in Anderson County and Sevier County and served as that firm's lead litigation attorney where he litigated a wide range of matters including disputes involving landlords and tenants, real estate, consumer issues, debts and personal and work injuries.  From 2002 to April 2007, Keith’s practice expanded to include more areas of civil litigation including extensive construction litigation, boundary disputes, partition actions and a wide range of contract disputes.  In April 2007, Keith joined his wife at a Maryville law firm and again expanded his practice of civil litigation to include business disputes, sinkhole disputes, contested wills, contested conservatorships, guardianships and breaches of fiduciary duties and trusts.  Keith joined Holbrook Peterson Smith PLLC in 2015 to provide the firm’s clients with his wide range and experience of litigation and contract services.

Keith's current areas of practice currently include almost all areas of civil litigation and contract review and drafting.  Keith’s wide range of practice routinely finds him in courts throughout Tennessee and often in courts in Anderson, Blount, Bradley, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Knox, Loudon, McMinn, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Scott, Sevier and Union Counties representing both Tennesseans and out-of-state clients.


In addition to being licensed to practice law in all Tennessee state courts, Keith is currently admitted to practice in the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Tennessee, the U.S. Court of Appeals, 6th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.


Keith currently enjoys a Preeminent AV® Rating for ethical standards and legal ability in Martindale-Hubbell’s rating system.  Keith also enjoys an overall Peer Rating of a 4.9/5.0 in the areas of litigation, personal injury and construction law as recorded by Martindale-Hubbell.  Keith also currently enjoys a Superb 9.5/10 rating in the Avvo rating system.

Keith maintains an active membership in the Anderson County, Blount County, Knox County, Loudon County, Sevier County and Tennessee Bar Associations.  Keith served as the President Elect and then President of the Loudon County Bar Association.  Keith is a current member of the Tennessee Association of Construction Counsel, serves as a volunteer member and Vice-Chair of the Town of Farragut Board of Zoning Appeals, serves as a Hearing Committee Panel Member for the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Responsibility and serves as a Board Member and the Secretary of Legal Aid of East Tennessee.
