I graduated from East Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in 1993, then attended Law School in Memphis, Tennessee and graduated from the University of Memphis, Cecil C.

I have represented consumers and small businesses in Bankruptcy Court against their creditors since 1996. I also worked for a United States Chapter 7 Trustee for two years.

I grew up in Oliver Springs, Tennessee and graduated from Oak Ridge High School in Oak Ridge, Tennessee in 1987.  I am married to Don and have a boxer named Floyd who comes to my office every day.  Floyd and I would love to see you.

    I have known Cynthia Lawson for over 10 years and am quite familiar with her legal background and experience. She and I have had occasion to assist one another in several bankruptcy cases and, on occasion, we have been on opposite sides of a case. I can say without hesitation that Ms. Lawson's colleagues, myself included, consider her to be one of the most capable and well respected bankruptcy attorneys in Knoxville and the surrounding areas.
