Learn Demi’s areas of practice.

Demi Marks is the newest partner at McCracken Kuhn PLLC. She is passionate about family law and prides herself on her peacemaking approach, accessibility, efficiency, and empathy. She works in close conjunction with all the firm’s clients as their point of contact throughout their matter and beyond. Demi specializes in divorce, pre- and post-marital agreements, estate planning, and child custody. She is a Rule 31 Mediator and collaboratively trained attorney, both alternative dispute resolution methods she is very dedicated to, serving as a board member for Collaborative Divorce Nashville and the co-chair of the Nashville Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Group. Demi believes in using creativity and customization to tailor every matter to the individual and particularly to help families redefine their relationships in a respectful and harmonious manner. She endeavors to keep people out of Court as she understands how stressful that can be, but is a devoted advocate for her clients regardless of their unique pathway to dissolution. Demi is a member of the Nashville, Tennessee, California, and American Bar Associations and is licensed to practice in both Tennessee and California.

Prior to moving to Nashville, Demi worked at a boutique family law office in Beverly Hills, California. She handled a variety of complex litigation cases involving high net worth individuals, from post-judgment enforcements of qualified domestic orders to child and animal custody cases. Demi also has an entertainment law background, having worked at Amazon, NBCUniversal, and Sony in various capacities during her time in Los Angeles. While attending UCLA School of Law, she was the President of the Entertainment Law Society, Chief Articles Editor for the Entertainment Law Review, and Submissions Editor for the Journal of Law and Technology.

Demi studied with the esteemed collaborative law professional, Forrest “Woody” Mosten. She soon realized her passion for family law and, through Woody’s mentorship, developed skills in mediation, collaborative law, unbundled legal services, and hybrid solutions to tricky family law situations. After graduation, Demi worked with Woody as a research assistant on his book Unbundled Legal Services: A Family Lawyer’s Guide. She volunteers regularly in Woody’s mediation training courses as a coach and mentor to professionals around the world.

When Demi is not at work, she can typically be found exploring Nashville with her daughter, Ryder, and her husband, Lorne. She enjoys hiking with her two pups, Riggins and Wild, riding horses, and traveling the globe. She is a passionate advocate for animals, LGBTQ+ rights, and mentorship. She serves as a volunteer interviewer for her alma matter, Tufts University, is involved with the Temple community, and spearheads the firm’s clerkship and mentorship programs.

Such a great lawyer!
Demi Marks was a wonderful lawyer. She was very competent on the legal front but also had vey good therapeutic skills and used humor, good differentiation, and maturity to keep the divorce process moving forward even when there were some emotional peaks to the process. She was able to keep our focus on the goal of getting through the divorce and getting a fair settlement. She conducted herself very professionally even when the opposing counsel got very unprofessional. I highly recommend her!

Divorce
I hired Demi Marks in September 2020 and my divorce was final December 2, 2020! I could not ask for a more professional and competent attorney to handle my divorce. She and her team were prompt, professional and kind during a very difficult time. I will recommend Demi and her team to any family or friends who find themselves in need of a divorce attorney.

So professional and caring
I cannot tell you what a blessing it was to have Ms. Marks working on my divorce. What could have been a very stressful and anxiety-producing process was made as comfortable as it possibly could be, thanks to both the knowledge and professionalism, and the empathy of Ms. Marks. I felt like my choices were followed, instead of my being forced or led to make decisions. Would highly recommend.

Extremely helpful
Demi did an excellent job with communication, navigating and handling my case. If I was ever unsure of needed further explanation, she was quick to respond with an easy to understand explanation. Demi fought hard for my case and more specifically my wants. I am very thankful for her help!
