I would recommend Rocky McElhaney Law Firm to anyone that is in need of a trustworthy and caring firm. I turned to Rocky McElhaney Law Firm and Mr.Russell Belk when I was hurt at work and my employer was not looking out for my best interest. My Employer's Dr gave me a lot of restrictions so I could never return back to my old job but turned around and contradicted that by giving me a 0% rating basically looking out for the company not me at all. Mr. Belk and the firm made sure I was seen by a Dr. that had my interest in account not just my employers. If I would have went with my employers Dr. and never hired Rocky McElhaney Law Firm and Mr. Russell Belk I would have walked a way with no job and no settlement instead I walked with more than a fair settlement. The service I received through out the process was 5 star quality, Mr. Belk and Anna stayed in contact with me about the next steps along with answering my emails extremely fast. Do not let your employer make you feel like they have you best interest at hand because when it comes down to it they are going to do whats best for them so you should do the same thing and HIRE Rocky McElhaney Law Firm and Mr. Russell Belk.

I have been represented by Mr. McElhaney's law firm since 2006, I don't believe there is a better firm in the country. I and my health has always been put first by this firm, Mr. McElhaney and his co workers have actually made me realize there is one law firm that I can honestly say is practicing law for the good of its clients. over the years I have recomended Mr. McElhaney's firm to several folks and every one of them have come to me thanking me recomending an excellent experience. Mr. McElhaney is one of the most caring, kind and honest people I have ever known.I wish I could tell everyone about him, I see these attorney's advertising on tv and I know that most if not all aren't nearly as concerned about their client's well being as Mr. McElhaney. I dont have a case pending or anything like that, the reason I am posting this is just because I want everyone that need's legal help can get the name of who I believe is among the best there is. Please if you need legal help from someone that cares please call Mr. McElhaney, you wont be sorry. When my injury first occured I would have never guessed I would be fortunate enough to have the experience I have had. Do yourself a favor and give them a call, it's a lot like a good friend is also your attorney. I would never consider a different attorney if I ever had an injury again. I think this firm is the standard by which all firm's should be held. I started with a traumatic injury and ended up with me health care needs taken care of for life and a friend that contacts me just to see how i'm doing. I don't think there is a better person or a better firm than this one. I hope the best for everyone, I hope you never have an injury that would cause you to need an attorney but if you do there isn't a smarter thing you can do than to call Mr. McElhaney.

My only child passed away in a car wreck and I hired Rocky to represent me in a wrongful death suit. I could not have made it through everything if Rocky had not been so kind, caring, compassionate and sensitive to what I was going through. Honestly, before I met Rocky and his team of wonderful people, I assumed with him being a trial attorney that he would be just a person in a suit that didn't really care about me, my family and what we have gone through. Much to my surprise, Rocky was much more than I ever expected. He made what was the most difficult thing I had ever gone through manageable. He walked beside me the entire time through the process and always followed through. He helped us understand why legal action was needed in order to get the justice and protect my son's good name.

To whom it may concern: Rocky McElhaney Law Firm went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to handling my case. Rocky McElhaney and Russell Belk were there for me 100% of the way. When you walk into the firms office you feel a sense of ease and relief fall over you all at once. I have never met a team of people who truly cared and worked so hard for me and my family as the McElhaney team did. I was very comfortable with the way my case was handled from start to finish and will definitely use Rocky again if the need arises. I have and will continue to refer prospective clients. If you want an attorney that will work hard for you my advice is hire Rocky McElhaney Law Firm.

I was on 160 on a motorcycle and a car pulled out in front of me and I t-boned him. The insurance company was disputing liability even though I had the right away. I had broke my back, had stitches in my face, my wrist and had bad road rash- I was in bad shape. Called Rocky, he came right out to my house and got the ball rolling. He wasn't afraid to take on the challenge and I was thankful that he made it so easy for me with all I was going through. When we went to mediation he tore the other Defendant apart- really made him look like an unprepared fool. I was really surprised how good he is at what he does, it was just like I was watching a lawyer on TV. Dena, the paralegal I dealt with was great to work with and always responsive. I was really satisfied with the outcome and I'd definitely use Rocky again. In fact, I've got all these lawyers out here in Morristown but I'd still come to Nashville if and hire Rocky. I think that says a lot.

Rocky McElhaney and Steve Fifield worked a case for me a while back. I have never met two attorneys that seemed so genuinely involved in helping me and my family. Where as most attorneys I've dealt with leave you in the dark, he and his team are really thorough and they make solid attempts to help you understand what is happening in your case. I felt good about going to Rocky and God forbid I need to, I will use him again. Thanks RML!

I would highly recommend Rocky McElhaney Law Firm. I had work-related injuries and a co-worker referred me to Rocky. I have used other firms before and I will never go back to them. Rocky and Justin treated me with respect. They listened to what I had to say and made sure I understood exactly what was happening in my case . I am happy with the way my case was handled and I do not recommend anyone lightly. I have referred Rocky and Justin to other people and hope you are just as happy with them as I was. I will be using them again If the need should arrive.

I worked for Coca-Cola for 15 years, and all the pushing, pulling, lifting and tugging ended up getting to me causing a gradual injury to my neck and back. One day I woke up and I couldn't breathe and I was numb all over. The doctor said that my neck was so messed up that it looked like I'd been in a car wreck. Both the doctors said that I couldn't go back to work and if I did they said It was going to have to be at limited capacity. Work comp of course went on to deny my claim. Then I contacted *****, because I knew they were in the wrong and I wasn't. ***** said don't worry we're gonna take care of you and he did. He got the records, got my surgery approved, he also took care of getting my health insurance to pay for what they were supposed to before I made my claim to work comp. I ended up getting as much money by law that I could get to help set me up and more importantly I now get my medical treatment paid for life. ***** has got the skills in the courtroom and he did the work on the back end so I didn't have to do a thing. I've got friends that are lawyers and even they said that they couldn't have got me what ***** got me because it was a gradual injury and that they are hard to prove. ***** didn't give up, he didn't let up an he really went to bat for me. He's just awesome.

A very good experience for me dealing with a legal matter. I have the utmost amount of respect for Mr. McElhaney because of his passion for what is right and seeing that what is right is the end result in his cases.

I endorse this lawyer. I attended law school with Rocky at the same time, and since then have kept up with his rise to the top. There is a reason for all the well-deserved awards bestowed on Rocky. He represents working people and is extremely passionate about what he does. He is also hard-working, extremely knowledgeable in several areas of the law, and is both client-focused and success-oriented while always bearing ethics in mind. Rocky is well-known and highly respected in the Nashville legal community and commits a significant amount of his time to civic involvement. I highly endorse this lawyer.
