  • Darren Drake

    I first met Sonya as opposing counsel in a construction case gone wrong. As a newly licensed attorney, I took a few cases out of my normal practice areas and one case sat me across the table from her. I had emails and phone calls with her daily as our clients disagreed with one another. Although we were finally able to reach an agreement, Sonya's extensive knowledge and expertise made me realize for the first time that I should not attempt to practice too many areas of law at once. She regularly argues with insurance companies, commercial businesses, deals with the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act, and litigates with difficult adversaries. As I now primarily practice criminal defense, I have recommended all insurance related cases to Sonya since our case was resolved. EVERY client that I have sent to Sonya sings her praises and has been pleased with her legal services. My respect for her is of the highest level and I endorse her without reservation in all of her practice areas.
