This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Virginia’s comment: “This action occurred over 26 years ago and it is not indicative of Mrs. Story's commitment to the Bar and her clients. Her integrity has been proven and it is unfortunate that an incident so many years ago would still be active.”

I hired Virginia in 2013 to help me with family law matters and have found her to be a dedicated and compassionate advocate. Virginia's many years of experience in middle Tennessee and history of success have given me comfort that my interests were being well served.

Ms. Story has been a practicing Family and Criminal Law attorney for over thirty years in Williamson County as well as other surrounding counties and has a superior reputation among colleagues, judges, and clients. She has a solid legal background but her experience is not the only reason that she is sought after. She also has a genuine concern for her clients; her approach is both logical and emotional and with each step of the legal process, she educates her clients as a means of support. She has a very high record of return clients and because of the this, she receives numerous referrals. One would be hard-pressed to find a more determined, ethical, knowledgeable, and professional attorney who truly cares. I highly endorse this attorney.

Represented me in a divorce. Instructed me to get separate bank account. Then got ZERO from bank accounts that I contributed to for over 20 years. Got locked out of house and got very little marital property. She dismissed TPP without consent. She did more for the opposing attorney than she did for me. I would not recommend her!

Virginia is the gold standard for divorce lawyers. She is a walking encyclopedia of laws and cases that affect divorce and child custody. Her instincts for the likely outcomes of a case can come only from the years she has devoted to practicing strictly family law. Not only does Virginia know the law and how to use it to her client's best advantage, she is lovely to all parties, attorneys and court staff in the process. I highly recommend Virginia.
