The Lawyer You Need In Your Corner!
If you are in search of legal representation that embodies professionalism, dedication, and exceptional courtroom prowess, I wholeheartedly recommend Brooke. My experiences with her services, which spanned across complex cases including a divorce, multiple custody disputes, and a pivotal case concerning the acquisition of passports for my children, have unequivocally demonstrated her outstanding capabilities and commitment to her clients' best interests. Brooke distinguishes herself not only through her legal acumen but also through her remarkable ability to maintain composure and clarity under pressure. Her responsiveness to communications, even under the most stressful circumstances, is unparalleled. She possesses a rare blend of intelligence and thoughtfulness, consistently offering strategic advice and insights that have proven invaluable in navigating the complexities of my cases. Her courtroom demeanor is that of a composed and formidable advocate, always prepared and several steps ahead of the opposition. Brooke’s approach is both strategic and empathetic, ensuring that while the legal objectives are pursued with tenacity, the human element of each case is never overlooked. For anyone requiring legal assistance that comes with a genuine commitment to achieving the best possible outcomes, Brooke is an exemplary choice. Her dedication to her clients extends beyond the mere provision of legal services; she is a steadfast supporter and advisor. Having Brooke in your corner is not just an asset; it is a necessity for those seeking justice and resolution in their legal matters.

Incredible client care, excellent delivery of results, hire Brooke!
Brooke and her team did an absolutely amazing job helping me navigate a not-so-standard divorce. My husband and I had multiple properties and a business together, and let's just say things were not amicable between us. From the first call to the final decree and beyond (while sorting out financial separation), I couldn't ask for a better advisor. Brooke made a very intimidating process very easy to understand, and she did an amazing job guiding me through each step while also being sensitive to the emotional and other burdens of divorce. I would absolutely recommend Usher Family Law to anyone facing divorce in a not-so-amicable situation. We were able to resolve things relatively quickly and I was 100% divorced, free, and financially separated within one year. She charges competitive rates and she is worth every penny, given the incredible value she delivers to her clients, whom she handles with care.

Amazing
I cannot say enough good about Brooke. From our first consultation, I knew I was in good hands. She has navigated my extremely tumultuous case with ease, keeping me updated every step of the way. I have found that with most attorneys, it is hard to get steady communication, but not with Brooke. She was always responsive, even once during an emergency on a Sunday. She stayed calm and reassured me even when my case got very complicated and fought to get the outcome I wanted. If you are looking for a family attorney who is smart, quick-thinking, hard-working, and compassionate, Brooke is the one for you!

A Phenomenal Attorney
I can not begin to share how thankful I am for Brooke's guidance and expertise through my divorce and custody case. When I began this process, I was scared of what the future would hold. Brooke guided me through all my options, expertly crafted a plan, and kept me fully informed every step of the way. Brooke is an amazing lawyer who is skilled at what she does and truly cares for her clients. I simply can not recommend her enough.

Better now...
I was referred to Usher Family Law PLC and after interviewing several firms, I choose this firm to represent me. Brooke Usher did not disappoint. I can only imagine how difficult her job must be to navigate not only the divorce settlement, but the emotions that her clients go through. I am a very emotionally consistent and laid back person when it comes to stress and my emotions, but I was definitely out of my element during this divorce. It was like nothing I had experienced. Brook Usher made me feel very comfortable during the process and assured me that what I was experiencing was normal and that I would get through it. She was very thorough at looking at my case and weighing out the options before me. She had great advice and I found her to be very bright, knowledgeable, fair, and genuinely caring. We had a lot of assets and businesses in our estate so there were a lot of moving pieces and it was a difficult settlement. I would like to add that even though we had separate attorneys, my ex-husband and I both walked away feeling like it was a fair settlement. That, I believe, is the sign of a great attorney. I would recommend anyone looking for a great attorney to look to Usher Family Law PLC for help. They will not let you down.

Divorce
Ms. Usher is a very smart and professional lawyer. Brooke handled my divorce this past year. When I came to her I had been married 30 plus years. She listened to me and was very supportive of me. Brooke is a tough, honest and a hardworking attorney. I could call or email her at anytime and she would always respond almost immediatey. My ex-husband is an narcissitic pyschopath. No matter what he tried to pull Brooke was on top of it! It didn't take me long to know that I had picked the right attorney to fight for me. Brooke did a fantastic job for me and I am very grateful.

Brooke will fight for you!
Ethical, honest, dedicated, honorable and Christ-follower are just a few of the words that describe Brooke Usher. Brooke was recommended to me by a trusted friend. His trust was well founded. When I first came to see Brooke, I was trying to decide whether to file for a divorce from my husband of over thirty years. It was in a very bad marriage but the thought of ending it scared me so much. She listened to me and told me she would be there for me if I decided to file. A few weeks later my ex filed for divorce so that decision was made for me. I immediately hired Brooke and she began fighting for me like no one else ever had. I had been beaten down by so much verbal and mental abuse over decades that I could barely speak up for myself. Brooke was a strong voice for me until slowly over the twelve months that followed I learned to speak up for myself. I always knew that she had my back and that every action she took was for my benefit. She is a very smart woman and none of the tricks my ex or his lawyer tried to pull over the next 10 months fooled her. When I would be panicking when lies were being presented as facts, she kept me grounded. She would point out that not only were the lies obvious but my true source of truth and strength was Jesus. She was right. When the time came for mediation she was a power house! She didn’t stop fighting until I had the alimony that was due me and the wording of the document covered me for every possibility. Even making sure that it was stated that my ex had to carry enough life insurance so if he died before the eight years were up, I would still get the full amount of alimony due me! I never even knew that was something you could do. Although all her actions showed me that she always had my best interest at heart, there was one thing that showed, me once again, that her dedication to my divorce was the most important thing. I had, along with the divorce, a litigation suit that I was not sure I was going to pursue. But about six months into the divorce proceedings I felt I could handle a legal suit against a church and the minister that were at the heart of my ex-husband’s grounds for divorce. When I told Brooke that I would like to act against the church and minister for the grievous harm they had done to me, she immediately said that was not her area of legal expertise and brought in another lawyer who would work with her. She did this not only because she knew it was better for me but so she could continue to devote herself to representing me to the best of her abilities in my divorce. That above all, she wanted me to come through the divorce with the best possible outcome, showed her integrity once again. She wasn’t more interested in any possible monetary gain for her than she was in making sure I had the best representation in the litigation. And she wanted to keep her focus on my divorce. She is a strong Christian woman and I will always be grateful to her. Brooke wasn’t just my advocate. She became my friend. She spoke for me when I couldn’t, encouraged me to do hard things because she knew I would be glad once I had (she was right!), and was always available to me. She is a true blessing.

Child Custody
Let me start by saying Brooke has been the most dependable, responsive, fight for your case attorney I have hired and I have been through a few since 2005. First, I am an out of state client that was allowed to relocate but needed to go back to court. I contacted her and was immediately transferred since I just received notice of a hearing to take place a few days later. She explained all my options from the beginning and let me know what she felt would be the best route to handle my case and she went for it. If anything new came up or she needed more information, she was quick to send an email or tell me she needed to speak to me directly and we would set up a time to talk. From the time of filing to the actual hearing I did not feel like I was a forgotten client which I have felt like from other attorneys. Know that when you hire Brooke, she will analyze your case as your attorney, tell you the truth and look at your case from the other perspective (judge, other attorney, etc) . She ALWAYS looks at what is best for your child and will have you ready for court when going before a judge.

Knowledgable, Available, Respected
As a licensed therapist, I sometimes need to refer my clients to an expert in family law. Brooke is my go-to referral. She is knowledgable, available, and well-respected in the legal community. I've found that unresponsive attorneys who drag the divorce process on and on for months are a major source of stress to my own clients. Brooke responds to her clients in a very timely manner and does her best to close cases efficiently, while advocating for the best possible outcome for her clients. Everyone I've referred to Brooke has been very pleased.

Proactive, Experienced, Kind
Brooke Usher is an outstanding lawyer. I hired her in a custody case, which she proactively led. Throughout the case I gained valuable knowledge about family law in Tennessee and in general. Brooke is widely connected with mediators and was very supportive in pursuing an out-of-court agreement, which we reached within the desired timeframe. What outlines her competence is her skill to balance her partiality with a reasonable sense of fairness. She is able to kindly bring perspective into subjects of emotional escalation, without compromising her professionality. I remain a grateful client of hers.

Highly Recommend
I hired Brooke Usher for a custody case. As a father I knew it would not be an easy task but she made it seem like it was. She was aggressive in legal issues and sincere in her desire to help. Communication was always good and explanations were clear. I was always advised in a manner that not only lead to winning custody, but she obviously was trying to do it in a way that did not cost me more then necessary. I have recommended Brook Usher to friends and will continue to.

Child support payments
Brooke was helpful in putting into perspective my options. I feel she did not truly represent me in court as the Child Support attorney did most of the talking on my behalf. In terms of my final settlement, I am still a little unclear as to my options. I'm thinking perhaps Brooke could have been more detailed in explanation. However, I am glad I was represented and feel Brooke was in my best interests.
