Made a Heartbreaking Experience Easier
Mr. Brinson helped me so much through my divorce. It was not something I ever thought I would go through, and Mr. Brinson was kind and understanding throughout the process. He answered my questions in a way that helped me understand some complicated things, but never made me feel dumb. I was also in contact with Mr. Brinson often because of my many questions and concerns, and he never got impatient with me. He always took the time to talk to me without seeming to rush. I felt like he truly cared about my situation and that he did his best to get me the best outcome possible. I couldn't recommend him any more highly.

Pleasantly surprised
The whole divorce process is so daunting. I was referred to Mr Brinson by a friend of mine who recently utilized his expertise in her divorce and all I can say is WOW! Mr Brinson was so genuine and honest the whole time and helped me understand the ins and outs of the process. He made everything so easy! And while nobody wants to go through a divorce, Alex is the one to reach out to when you have questions. Thank you so much Mr Brinson!!!

Great work!
Mr Brinson was the answer to my prayers. My son had ended up in some serious trouble and we called Alex. He was professional and understanding from the first phone call until he shook our hand after court. He kept me updated and eliminated the worry you have when your child is in trouble. I just knew he was going to work hard for my family. He went above and beyond expectations and I would refer him to anybody. Thank you so much Mr. Brinson

Best ever experience with an attorney. Use this guy.
I hired this attorney from Ohio to represent my best employee that had an outstanding warrant and case in his former town of Knoxsville. He got us a better than expected result, explained everything in easy to understand language and handled 90 percent of case before we even showed up from Ohio. We basically walked into court and poof he worked his lawyer magic. Could not ask for anything more. Alex will handle whatever situation you are in, in the best possible manner without judgement.

Excellent Professional for anyone needing quality legal representation
Mr. Brinson represented my grandson on a probation matter recently. I am impressed with his professionalism, knowledge and care for his clients and their families. He kept me informed every step of the way and responded quickly to all my questions. He is a fine gentleman and goes beyond what is required of most attorneys.

Mr Brinson represented my fiance in a criminal matter
Mr Brinson did an awesome job representing my fiance. He cares about his clients. He contacted me on a daily basis to keep me updated on the case, always answered my questions patiently. He is a rare lawyer in the fact that he actually has concern and his clients and the family. Being a lawyer is not just a job to him, he actually enjoys the research and work that goes into doing the job well.

Best lawyer I've ever encountered.
We hired Alex for a custody hearing about our granddaughter and he is an absolutely excellent lawyer! What really impressed us is the genuine caring he showed for our case. Our case became very complicated and he never stopped fighting for our granddaughter. You could do MUCH worse if you need a lawyer.

Great Lawyer
I knew Mr.Brinson for years, made a wrong choice in my life and instantly wanted him as my lawyer. He is very knowledgable about a wide variety of different case types, he is quick to respond, he tries extremely hard to get you the best results that he can possibly get, he is very friendly, very straight forward, and he doesn't look at his clients as criminals no matter if they may be. If you are ever in need of a lawyer for any reason, I highly recommend this up and coming young lawyer, I think he will do extremely well in his law career. Thank you Mr.Brinson for all your help, thoughtfulness and kindness.

Not Impressed-unprofessional
I am disabled and Alex Brinson was assigned to me for divorce on a 30 year marriage from a husband that was controlling and abusive. When Alex told me he was dropping me because couldn't get husband served (even though husband in military) I didn't know what to do so I tried to find him myself (with backup assistance of course). When Alex found out he was extremely rude and told me I didn't act like an abused spouse and was a stalker. I cannot believe how rude and unprofessional this attorney was to me. He has no idea what I have been through and how controlling my husband was. I just want a divorce!!! Alex has no clue about military divorces nor what all was required when filing paperwork with the court. Don't expect him to go above and beyond for you or be professional. I don't even know why he works through legal aide if he doesn't plan on providing appropriate services. With his limited knowledge on divorce and rude demeanor I would never recommend him to anyone!
