About me

After graduating from Hixson High School in Chattanooga in 1989, Keith went on to study psychobiology as an Echols Scholar at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.  In 1992, Keith obtained a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction from UVA and returned to Tennessee to begin studying law at the University of Tennessee College of Law in Knoxville.  At law school, Keith focused his studies on trial advocacy and contracts, actively served as a Knox County General Sessions Court mediator, worked in both the civil and criminal clinics and volunteered his time by helping local high school students with their mock trial programs.  In 1995, Keith obtained his Juris Doctorate and remained in Knoxville to begin the practice of law.


Keith's volunteer work led him to begin the practice of law in Anderson County, Tennessee.  From 1995 to 2002, Keith worked for a Clinton law firm practicing both civil and criminal litigation throughout East Tennessee.  In 2002, Keith formed his own firm with offices in Anderson and Sevier County and served as that firm's managing and lead litigation attorney.  Keith’s practice included a wide range of matters including disputes involving landlords and tenants, real estate, consumer issues, debts and personal and work injuries.  From 2002 to April 2007, Keith’s practice expanded to include more areas of civil litigation including residential and commercial construction litigation, boundary disputes, partition actions and a wide range of contract disputes.  In April 2007, Keith joined his wife in the practice at a Blount County firm to help found that firm’s Loudon County office.  Keith again expanded his practice of civil litigation to include cases involving more complicated business disputes, sinkhole issues, contested wills, conservatorships, guardianships and matters involving breaches of fiduciary duty and trust.  Keith joined Holbrook Peterson Smith PLLC in 2015 to expand and oversee the litigation practice of that Knoxville firm long known for its excellence in estate and trust planning, probate administration and tax planning services.  Keith’s current practice areas include, but are not limited to, matters involving construction issues, conservatorships, contracts, fiduciary duties, contested wills, leases, business disputes and personal injuries.


Keith’s clients and cases routinely place him before courts throughout Tennessee and often in courts in Anderson, Blount, Bradley, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Knox, Loudon, McMinn, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Scott, Sevier and Union Counties.  Keith’s representative clients are individuals, businesses and families either located in Tennessee or with interests in Tennessee.


Keith currently enjoys a Preeminent AV® Rating for ethical standards and legal ability in Martindale-Hubbell’s rating system.  Keith also enjoys an overall Peer Rating of a 4.9/5.0 in the areas of litigation, personal injury and construction law as recorded by Martindale-Hubbell. 


Keith maintains an active membership in the Anderson County, Blount County, Knoxville, Loudon County, Sevier County and Tennessee Bar Associations.  Keith is a past President of the Loudon County Bar Association.  Keith is a current member of the Tennessee Association of Construction Counsel, serves as Vice-Chair of the Town of Farragut Board of Zoning Appeals, serves as Judge of the Municipal Court for the Town of Farragut, serves as a Hearing Committee Panel Member for the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Responsibility and serves as the Secretary of the Board of Directors for Legal Aid of East Tennessee.
