Best of the Best Business Attorney
Alicia goes above and beyond for her clients to not only meet their legal needs but to help connect them with others in the community to help grow their business. I have personally used Alicia and refer her often. Always rave reviews -- there is no question in the value she brings!

The only person I'd trust, period
I was lucky enough to meet Alicia a few years ago in a networking group here in Knoxville. When it came time for me to create an LLC that required strongly worded, specific niche contracts I instantly knew who to hire. She's setting up our LLC, complete with all the specifics that were clearly explained in our initial consultation. She offered her advice, but was also a great listener. To be honest she's just a great person. If you're shopping around for the best bang for your buck for a business attorney I'd strongly suggest looking no further than Alicia. She's the only person I'd trust, period!

Professional, Excellent Response Time & Communication
Mrs. McMurray-Smith was our Attorney for our recent business sale. She was on top of it, quick to reply and assisted us in getting it done quickly. Alicia made sure we were protected and didn't back down during closing. We highly recommend Mrs. McMurray-Smith and will hire her again if needed.

Small Businesses Help
I met Alicia several months ago through a networking group. I didn’t think I’d need her services anytime soon but, sadly, I was wrong. A couple of our rolloff dumpster service’s decided they didn’t feel like paying their overweight fees - big problem for a small business. Alicia has been very helpful in showing us how where to tighten up our customer contract and in outlining ways we can recoup the money. She’s a nice person, clearly enjoys what she does, and charges a reasonable rate. I don’t know what more we could’ve asked for. We’re using her for all our future legal needs.

Very satisfied
It has been a pleasure to work with Alicia and see her results. I have used Alicia for my own matters and referred numerous clients to Alicia and her company. She handles all matters with professionalism and putting her clients first. Alicia is very knowledge about the business sector and I highly recommend reaching out to her when the times comes.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have had the pleasure of knowing this lawyer since her first year of law school. In short, she did everything, including winning school-wide competitions and getting to argue a moot court case in front of a US Supreme Court Justice, and I would not be shocked in the slightest if her legal career proceeds along this stellar path. I could tell you about Ms. McMurray's excellent trial skills, her participation in professional organizations, her volunteer work, and the list goes on, but all I need to say is that I would not hesitate endorsing her to my own family. That, to me, says it all."
