Attorney Brent R. Laman saved my family thousands!
I can not express what an excellent job attorney Brent R. Laman did for me on a recent legal matter. I had a corporate entity place a substantial burden against me and my wife. The entity was placed the burden outside their legal rights. Brent Laman took my case an handled it just like he was handling something for a friend of family member. His communication skills are excellent and the end result was that my wife and I won our case. If your looking for the BEST attorney in Knoxville in civil matters, I'd recommend you contact Brent immediately. If you have any questions about what an excellent job he will do, I give Brent my permission to give my number to anyone shopping for an attorney.

THE Best Attorney I've Worked With
Brent is everything you could ever want out of your representation. Clear, reliable, available (even when he shouldn't have to be). He is upfront, honest, and better at managing time, dates, deadlines, and follow-ups than any defense I've had. Constantly impressed with his ability to keep a case on track for settlement. As far as insurance defense goes, Brent is who you want in your corner.

Very helpful!
I have a landlord-tenant case. Brent took the time to help guide me in the right direction. I will definitely consider hiring him if I need to take the case further!

Good Counsel
Brent has assisted our firm in numerous Landlord related matters. His expertise included a successful real estate tax appeal which reduced the new assessment by 50%. He has also assisted us in Landlord Tenant matters, not only helping to settle disputes but also assisting on lease language, etc. I would recommend him highly.
