About T. Leigh

Learn T. Leigh’s areas of practice.

Described as caring but “tenacious” by clients, I am a driven legal professional with an ability to educate my clients about their case along with the dedication required to deliver results. I enjoy pursuing justice and fairness for my clients, and helping parties move to that next life chapter.  Clients need that  opportunity to be heard and stand up for themselves.  It is empowering for a client to have someone defend their rights and their children, especially if they are emotionally worn.  Seeing a client grow through the that process of heart break to standing strong with their head held high encourages me to continue working with others that need help as well.

I am from a military family and reside in Nashville with my husband, who is also my law partner.   I previously served on the Board of Directors of Mending Hearts, Inc. and headed up volunteer demolition / remodeling projects for Cross Point Church of Nashville. My practice is focused on Family Law, Fraud, Consume Protection, and Contracts.

I graduated from Auburn University and earned my Doctorate of Jurisprudence from Cumberland School of Law.

I am licensed to practice law in both Alabama (1996) and Tennessee (2001).  I am member of the Alabama State Bar Association, the The Tennessee Bar Association, the Nashville Bar Association, the United States District Court Middle District of Alabama, and the United States District Court Middle District of Tennessee.

She is literally a God send!
Where do I begin? I was in one of the hardest places of my life and needing a knight in shining armor. I prayed and asked God to guide me to a lawyer, in faith I began search google and Ms. Hearn-Rushtons Law Firm popped up amongst many others so I started to check their reviews. The first review I saw for her read something like "she was a God send" and I knew this was the one! From beginning to end she wasn't just a lawyer she championed me! She is beyond excellent at what she does but to me even more important than her skill was her love for her clients! I am forever grateful that it was her I got to walk out that season in court with!

Can not fully express my gratitude for Leigh and Harold.
I will never be able to put into words the impact Leigh, Harold, Justina and the entire Rushton Law Firm has had on my life. I contacted Leigh for a consult needing legal council for my very high conflict divorce. I was married very young and had no idea where to start with this process... after reading reviews left by others I reached out but after my initial consult I knew Leigh was the one to represent me. Leigh advocated for me from start to finish in this process.. including many long nights, court dates and hours of mediation. Although I initially hired Leigh, Harold began to get involved a few months in and both of them stood with me throughout this process. One of the highest conflict points in this divorce was my fur baby being kept from me, Leigh and Harold had us reunited over 3 months before the divorce was finalized. Justina and Haley worked non stop in gathering documentation and making sure everything was prepared in a timely manner, as well as provided support throughout this process. Leigh and Harold went out of their way to build back up a very broken woman, and have given me an entire new quality of life. Not only are they the most bad-a** attorney duo in all of TN in my opinion, they have also become family. I will never be able to fully express to them how much they saved my life. I would highly recommend the Rushton Law Firm for any legal matter. Leigh and Harold are not only great attorneys, but amazing people. Divorce is HARD, but when you have an entire firm in your corner it feels a little more manageable to take on.

Thank you for your review and for trusting us to take care of you! I'm pleased you chose me and my firm not just once for your initial matter but also a second time. Hopefully, you won't need us again, but if you do, you know where to find me!

She's the one!!
I chose Ms. Hearn-Rushton from an online search, having no referrals. I had called many lawyers already and most either didn't return my call or spoke to me as though I was just another interruption in their day. I called Ms. Hearn-Rushton's office late in the day and she actually answered the phone herself. We began speaking as though we had known one another for years! She was so compassionate and such an amazing listener! Even over the phone, I could tell she was actually LISTENING TO ME. She doesn't practice in the area that we needed a lawyer, but to my pleasant surprise she didn't merely wish me luck and get off the phone, she spoke with me for almost an entire hour, trying to help me find a lawyer that could help me! She also suggested helpful information such as how to lay out a timeline of events surrounding the case so that when I speak with another lawyer the conversation would be comprehensive and easily understood. She went above and beyond for me and my family, never having met me, and never charging me for the time she spent helping me. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do Ms. Hearn-Rushton is it! THANK YOU! You helped us more than you could ever know!

Excellent lawyer in Nashville
As a first time young divorcee, I don’t have an idea about divorce. When my ex spouse served me with summons, I was nervous and don’t know what to do. I called a couple of law offices to inquire but, only attorney T. Leigh work with my case based on my goal and financial budget. Throughout the case she made sure that I get what is fair and right. She is not just an attorney but also feels like a family member that wants what is best for you. She have a delicate voice that you don’t feel pressured. Talking to her feels just like taking to a friend. It’s beyond words working with her. So grateful and thankful. I highly recommend attorney T. Leigh if you need a lawyer and a friend. - Joy C. -

Caring, thoughtful, and knowledgeable
Leigh was caring and thoughtful throughout the process. She was accessible and responsive. In our first call together, Leigh took time to connect with me personally and listen to my priorities and concerns. This conversation was used as the North Star as we moved through the legal process together. THANK YOU!!!!

Search no further because you have just found yourself a phenomenal attorney
At the time Attorney Leigh’s name was recommended to me for my divorce, I had contacted some attorneys that I didn’t just feel that connection with. I looked Leigh up on the web, called and left a message. She returned my call within 24 hours and started off right away, asked the right questions and listened attentively, I felt a sense of personal connection and empathy. From there on Leigh answered my texts and emails promptly, be it day or night, that made me wondered if she worked all the time! Whenever I texted or emailed, she clearly and thoroughly addressed each and every concern and question. There was no intermediary between us, I think the only times I interacted with her assistant were when I visited her office or when following up on request to submit needed document. She directly messaged me and answered my calls, this to me is very important and appreciated. Leigh adequately prepared me in what to expect and looked out for me. She really knows her stuff. She got the job done at a very reasonable fee and pace. She was professional, compassionate, friendly, and calm. Her calmness helped me a lot during emotional times. Thank you so very much Leigh for going above and beyond. I am thankful that you were a part of the many help I received in my time of need. I recommend Attorney T. Leigh Hearn-Rushton for your legal needs. Additional Review: I used to know a preacher whose popular phrase was “It’s not over until it is over”. That phrase became more meaningful to me when I thought my divorce case was over, but my ex disputed and took us right back to court. Sometimes when you think you are done with something; it comes back rearing its ugly head. I hired attorney Leigh Rushton again to represent me in my post-divorce case and I was not disappointed. She and her team were phenomenal! Attorney Leigh once again with her unmatched experience, immediately went to work to strike the unjustified pleadings, and guess what happened in the end, she articulated my case and got me the desired and deserved favorable outcome. As the year is coming to an end as I ponder on what/who I am thankful for, Leigh Hearn-Rushton is one of them. I am thankful and count myself blessed to have a Leigh represent me in my post-divorce case. I now appreciate the phrase “It is not over until it is over” because now it is truly over. Do not hesitate to hire attorney Leigh for your legal needs. She is highly experienced, knowledgeable, efficient, empathizing and easily accessible, she will work with you personally and you are not just a number in her case files. Make sure you timely provide her with any info she requires of you for her to help your case, do not hold back any truth. I also want to mention that during my post-div case, I needed to enforce a decree out of state, and had no clue how. Leigh with her connection, linked me with a compassionate, experience and affordable attorney like her in another state who also got the work done. I strongly recommend attorney Leigh Hearn-Rushton.

Nashville's Finest Legal Gladiator
After my marriage of 24 years ended in divorce, Attorney Leigh as I fondly call her to consult in my divorce proceedings was my sound of reasoning. She has a brilliant legal mind in comparison to her Husbandn. She was my anchor throughout the entire process and I am forever grateful for her unyielding support and concern for my welfare. She has a strong work ethic and she is determined to obtain the best results for her clients. Her strategic plan in my divorce case was her secret weapon that provided the outcome I would have never anticipated. A settlement reached without a trial! Attorney Leigh is the absolute best and I am proud to have been blessed in allowing her and her staff to assist and service me with my divorce proceedings. As a superior litigator, she possesses the ability to relate to her clients. Thank you Attorney Leigh for taking my lemons and making sweet Lemonade.

Fair and passionate
In 2018 T. Leigh Hearn-Rushton took on my case for my divorce. I researched everybody I could and no one would answer. So this was my last hope and by the Goodness of God she took on my case. Leigh is more than a lawyer. She is a fair passionate woman who will fight tooth and nail for what's fair and right. I struggled to get through my divorce because of how my ex was but Leigh made sure to help keep my head up and faith in what we knew would be a great outcome for us both. I have to she is a wonderful woman inside and out and if I were to recommend someone getting things done she is the right one. I have to say from the bottom of my heart I'm grateful to her and all that she helped me with.

Best in the Business
I wish I could truly convey what Ms. Hearn-Rushton has meant to me these past few months. She helped get a wrongful Order of Protection against me overturned and dismissed and showed me the care and thoughtfulness that a true friend or family member would. She has gone above and beyond for me every time it was called for. I literally couldn't recommend her more. Thank you T. Leigh, thank you...

Thorough, Smart and Dedicated
T. Leigh is a wonderful attorney. I am so happy that she was able to bring closure to a long drawn out case. We had just moved to Tennessee from Illinois. A case that I thought was resolved, reared its ugly head shortly after we moved here. I found the Ruston law practice reviews on line and immediately felt I would like working with T.Leigh. Most of the time when she contacted me it was late at night or on the weekends. She works tirelessly and dilgently for her clients. The opposing attorneys were unresponsive so she hounded them with the facts they were trying to ignore. With much pushing from her they finally dropped the case. She is extremely dedicated and hard working. I am very grateful to her and highly recommend her.

Truly Dedicated.
I owe a lot to T. Leigh Hearn-Rushton. I was the subject of false accusations in a community setting and my accuser took me to civil court to get an order of protection against me. T. Leigh took one look at the paltry, disjointed allegations on the OP and accepted my case enthusiastically. In court, we heard a number of new allegations against me for the first time. My accuser almost seemed to be making them up on the spot. T. Leigh objected, but the judge chose to listen to my accuser, and ended up making a decision in her favor based on her emotional performance. T. Leigh wrote the word Appeal on a piece of paper in front of me, and we walked straight out of the court room and filed one. She said that what happened in that court room was up to the judge, but that it was wrong, and she slashed her retainer for me and I hired her straight away again for the appeal. We had a month to prepare, and we used it. Out of town all month, I spent hours going over and over the audio recording of the first trial, which, if she hadn't recorded, I don't know what we would have done. I made a seven page spread-sheet of every point of contention I had with my accuser's testimony. Meanwhile, T. Leigh was on the phone with me, asking me about everything, hearing me out, and guiding me through the process, and even helping reflect a clarity to me when I felt emotionally exhausted. As the appeal neared, T. Leigh dove in, burning long hours reading and making notes on everything I'd written, asking me for and poring over my evidence, having conversations with all my potential witnesses, and building her strategy for the trial. Here's what happened at the appeal. My accuser, the petitioner of the OP, gave her testimony for a little less than half an hour. She said all the stuff she said at the last trial, plus one new allegation, which we had been able to anticipate from evidence. Then, T. Leigh cross-examined the petitioner for two-and-a-half hours. Then, the judge threw the OP out. I didn't even have to testify. The cross-examination was one of the most brutal things I've ever seen. T. Leigh courteously extended the petitioner every invitation to contradict herself, to characterize things contrary to evidence (and then immediately presented that evidence), to show herself to be the guilty one we both knew her to be. T. Leigh was like a lion, playing with food. She was never mean or badgery... she was just completely authoritative and uncompromising, and the petitioner's case unraveled so thoroughly that by the end, she was just staring blankly at some low place, murmuring monosyllabic replies, and T. Leigh had to ask her to look at her. T. Leigh apologized to one of her colleagues who had been working in the courtroom that day after the trial when most people had left. She said she was sorry that she took so many hours to win the case... she could have done it in less time, but she wanted to make absolutely certain that the petitioner sabotaged every one of her own claims, and that she would have nothing left with which to come after me again. She did all this with a drastically reduced retainer, because she believed in me, and more importantly, because she believes in justice. Hire her.

Response from T. Leigh Hearn-Rushton December 12, 2020
Anon - Thank you for such a great review! And thank you for giving me all the information I needed in so that together we crushed it on the cross-examination. Even sweeter was the result - an award of attorney's fees and costs with a detailed Court Order that found that every. single. one. of Petitioner's allegations were false - meeting the higher clear and convincing standard of proof, along with the much-deserved expungement. Congrats on your sweet sweet victory!!

Great fit!
Leigh and her team worked diligently and effectively to close out my divorce. When bumps in the road happened, they were reassuring to me and assertive without being nasty or aggressive & did what needed to be done to close out my divorce much faster than I'd originally thought possible. I would recommend her in a heart beat- I spoke to quite a few attorneys before deciding without a shadow of a doubt that she was the one I wanted to have represent me. She reminds me of the cool auntie in the family!

Fantastic!
Leigh and her team took excellent care of me. From the beginning, she promised to ensure I was taken care of and she followed through on multiple occasions. Paperwork was simple and quick and everything went smoothly. I felt very comfortable with the Rushton team and would definitely recommend them to anyone! When I first spoke with Leigh, she listened to my case, made sure I knew that she was on my side, and then let me know that she would be charging significantly better pricing than anyone I had spoken with prior to speaking with her. I am very happy with the service provided and will gladly recommend Leigh to my friends and family. Thanks for everything!!
