THE BEST!
If I had three words to describe John Haines, it would be professional, knowledgeable and blunt. Divorce is always a sticky situation, but John navigated it like it was child's play. He's been doing this for a long time and if you think the retainer is too much to pay, it isn't. He chews gum and shoots from the hip. This does not mean he's cocky. He's just confident and that's what you need in a lawyer. Just listen to him, do what he tells you to do and it will be all over before you know it. He really isn't one of these sleazeball lawyers who is looking to overbill for every e-mail or call. I saw my ex's financials and he got billed 3-5 times a month. I never got a bill until the very end. He's there if you need him, but check your problem at the door to make sure you really need him. Divorce is emotional. He's not Dr. Phil. He's there to get you out of the predicament you're in and if it goes to court, fight for you. I appreciated his demeanor and when you hire him, you will too. The work was exceptional, the price was fair, the stories were hilarious and I'd give him and the boys in the office 5 stars any day of the week. Outstanding work!

Great Advocate
Jed represented in my divorce. Despite my best efforts to sabotage his excellent work he was able to achieve a fantastic result. He came highly recommended by another attorney which I had used previously. I would recommend him to anyone needing legal counsel.

Best family Attorney.
I heard about Jed through a family friend who also used him as her divorce attorney. So I figured I would have a consultation with him. After our consultation, I was VERY satisfied and knew that I wanted to hire him. This was back in 2018. He required the retainer, which was expected, and used that retainer towards the expenses. He was very professional, listened to my needs, had my sons best interest in mind, and maintained his integrity throughout my entire case. Not only did he handle my divorce, custody, and parenting plan case, he also handled my personal injury case, got me the most that he could, and knowing full well that he would get his share, so he made sure after giving him what was owed, I still had more than enough to cover costs. I don’t like saying I have an attorney “in my back pocket”, but I enjoy having the relief of knowing I have an attorney or any legal matters. Jed comes HIGHLY recommended by me, and will be the only attorney I use.

Best Lawyer Ever
Jed was without a doubt, a blessing during a very stressful time. He was honest, forthright and did everything he said he would. He walked me through everything, explained all so that I understood it, stood by my side through out my divorce and treated me like family. I can only say in this review to all, that I would highly recommend him to anyone. But to Jed, thank you my friend!

He truly means "he will be honest with you even if it hurts your feelings and his wallet"
I spoke with Jedidiah on A possible contract violation by another party we were dealing with. He was respectful, took the time to really listen for the truth and facts and then told me his truth about the matter. This meant he wouldn't be taking our money and making empty promises; knowing it would not be to our advantage! An honest, caring lawyer can be EXTREMELY hard to find but Jedidiah's character changes those rules for his profession! If we ever need an attorney; Jedidiah WILL BE our first choice!!!

Very appreciative
We needed an attorney very quickly. We appreciated a prompt phone consult with Jed, where he took his time to answer all of our questions. Jed advocated for us effectively in court. He has an attentive law clerk who took his time on the phone with me to help me prepare, and when one of our court dates conflicted with Jed's calendar, Luke, one of his partners, filled in and also did a great job for us. Thank you to the whole team. Would use their services in the future if needed.

Mr.
I'm a resident of Alabama. While a student in TN in 2019, I faced conviction for a crime - nervous, didn't know what to do. Didn't know any TN lawyers; my mother found an attorney on the Internet with an impressive resume. He highly recommended, & connected us with Jed McKeehan. After speaking to Jed, it was smooth sailing. Jed was friendly, easy to talk to, knowledgeable of TN law, honest, dependable, and very thorough. After going to court, Jed was successful in getting all charges dismissed. Thanks to Jed, my record is clear, and I can continue trying to be a success story. "Thank God" for Jed! If you want an attorney who will get the job done for you, contact Jed McKeehan!

Excellent Attorney
As a landlord, I experienced the first time needing to evict a tenant for not adhering to the contract and not paying rent. I had previously used Jed to create the contract I use with tenants, so I went back to him for help. Evicting someone is a much more complicated process than I would have thought, and he helped every step of the way. The tenant was evicted within 10 days of our hearing! He did a great job, and I would definitely hire him again!

Great Lawyer, very responsive!
I contacted Jed to be represent through email and received a call back first thing in the morning. He immediately went to work on my behalf, contacted the DA that day. Negotiate a deal far better than I hope closed the case in 5 days from when I contacted him. I never had to call, as he emailed me daily to keep me informed of the progress. His rates for service we're very affordable. Was very honest, fair, stight forward and reassuring. Thank- you so much!!
