The first question many people ask is what does the name of the firm mean and it is the perfect segue into allowing me to explain what the Vision, the Values and the Mission of the firm is.  

The word Amicus is of latin origin and is a noun defined as an impartial adviser, often voluntary, to a court of law in a particular case. The word Amicus is synonymous with what sets our attorneys apart and truly defines the weight we place in our relationship with our clients. We are here to serve as friends, allies, loyal and trusted advisors during what is often a difficult time for our clients, their families or their business. The definition embodies the Vision, the Values and the Mission that this firm was founded upon and that each of our attorneys operate under.

Our Vision
impartial adviser

Before we can successfully and prudently represent our client’s interests, we must first assess their concerns with impartiality. Knowledge is power and that is what we are able to provide to our clients because their trust in us is of the utmost importance. As friends, allies, loyal and trusted advisors we are here to inform, prepare and advocate for you. We are not afraid to litigate when necessary, but we intend to first rely on our communication skills and creativity to respectfully resolve matters with minimal friction, time expended and expense for all involved.

Our Values
often voluntary

“To whom much is given, much is expected” has and will always remain a core value for our attorneys. As a boutique firm we are able to practice with passion and purpose. The same integrity, excellence, service and teamwork that has earned us our clients respect and appreciation is the same values that drive our desire to educate and to give back to our community.

Our Mission
to a Court of Law

Our profession is rooted in the privilege of advocating for others with intent, principle and honesty before a tribunal. Unfortunately, many people have become jaded by their previous experiences with the judicial process. Our attorneys are determined to provide cost efficient and effective representation to our clients. The goal is that we provide them with peace and clarity through our diligent efforts which in turn should restore their confidence in the judicial process and the integrity of our profession. We will not stand down when it is deemed necessary to go that extra mile for our clients. Our firm has a Special Counsel specifically selected for experience in the Appellate Court practice. Our Special Counsel is here to ensure each client's case receives the priority it deserves.

She fights for what’s right!
After struggling through the court system and meeting with one roadblock after another trying to get the courts to see that my child’s father was not a fit parent, I found Ms. Patel. She took the time to listen to what I had been dealing with and recognized and affirmed my concerns. She gave me the facts and an honest assessment of my case. I immediately trusted her and we then began our journey to terminate my child’s father’s parental rights. We succeeded and I couldn’t be happier!!

Knowledgeable and easy to talk to
My husband and I hired Ms. Patel to do our Estate Planning (will, living will, power of attorney, etc.). It had been a struggle to get my husband willing to discuss this information just due to the nature of the topic. We both felt at ease when talking to Ms. Patel, she answered all of our questions thoroughly, was very knowledgable about what we needed/didn't need, and explained each step of the process. Would highly recommend for anyone needing to make sure their family is protected and will definitely use her again in the future!

Great advice on legacy planning
I attended a virtual presentation where Ms. Patel offered free advice on legacy planning. I was impressed with the detailed knowledge.

Very Knowledgeable
I have called Mital Patel for advice for an aging parent and she was great and told me what we needed to do. I have also referred others and she was able to help them too.

Passionate and Intelligent
I worked with attorneys for years, but when it came to starting my own business and needing help with setting up my business and making sure I was protected while giving me the best opportunity to succeed I picked Ms. Patel! I cannot thank her enough. I am two years into my new business and couldn’t have done it with her. My fiancé recently went to her after working with other attorneys for his lawn care business for years and was beyond grateful to have met her and he now says she won’t go anywhere else.

Passion is Key!
My wife and I retained Ms. Patel’s services to help with a custody situation in early 2019. From the very beginning her knowledge/passion for the law, specifically for fathers’ rights, was apparent and refreshing. She has continued to help us through the custody situation and is taking on additional family law related actions on our behalf as well. She even went out of her way to correct a previous attorney’s error through the Rule 60 process, which was a tremendous relief to me and my family! Ms. Patel’s tenacity and willingness to fight for what’s right is truly a blessing and anyone who has so much as a consultation with her will see it immediately. If you are seeking legal help or advice, I highly recommend taking the time to speak with Mital Patel.

Thank you for being dedicated to what is fair and just.
Ms Patel worked on my child support and visitation case and she was of great support from day one. I tell people if it wasn't for her understanding of the law and her nerve to speak up for me I could have been treated very unfairly. You can't go wrong with consulting or hiring her.

Best Attorney in Tennessee!
Mrs. Patel is the best of the best! Our case was VERY difficult, with a lot of different dynamics and VERY complicated, Mrs. Patel was 100% on our side, she put herself in our shoes and fought till the end! I wish I met her 10 years ago! I highly recommend her! She isn’t just attorney, she becomes part of your family! She knows the law, and then some!

A Wealth of Knowledge and Experience
Mital brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her practice. She listens well to her clients and I'm glad to be working with her. Her proposed solutions are much better than any of the automated online plug and chug services. I feel so much safer and protected with the comprehensive plan that Mital laid out for me.

Consummate Professional
Mrs. Patel is detail oriented in each case, dedicated to her clients, patient with the process, poised and confident in court. She exhibits the highest degree of professionalism in every area of her profession and I was beyond blessed that she accepted my case. Well respected by her peers and feels like family for her clients. Working with her was a breath of fresh air in a difficult season of my life. She made each step of the legal process clear and concise which gave my family peace of mind. I would recommend her to my friends and family and without question reach out to her in the future.

It is my privilege to recommend Mital Patel
I was facing a difficult Probate issue two years ago and needed an attorney who had the skills to handle unique problems and situations. I chose Mital Patel, and I am so glad I did! Ms. Patel was invaluable in helping me navigate the Probate matter, and I recently retained her again for an unrelated family law case. She has not disappointed. With two successful outcomes, I feel as though I have finally found counsel who actually listens to me, and on whom I can trust and depend. Ms. Patel's strong values, her passion for compliance with the law, her calm demeanor, and her “no nonsense” approach to problem-solving have enabled me to confidently hand any and all of my legal issues over to her. It is my privilege to recommend Mital Patel to anyone needing quality legal representation!

Great Attorney! Great Advice
Ms. Patel helped us with our estate planning needs. She gave us all of the information we would need to make decisions for our future and answered all of our questions during the consultation and on a later phone call. Her preparation of our Wills, Power of Attorney, etc. was exactly what we had discussed with her and she accommodated all of our needs and requests. Her fees were more then affordable and honestly surprising considering the great legal advice and service we received. She was also very helpful with a Probate matter we had been dealing with for a long time. Once Ms. Patel was involved with that it was closed in a timely manner (this case probably would still be sitting on our old attorneys desk if we did no hire Ms. Patel). We have since recommended several of our close friends to her and will continue to do so.

Efficient, Affordable, Friendly, and Knowledgeable! An Attorney works hard for You!
I retained Mital D. Patel to represent me in an immigration matter. I was reluctant at first since I was out of state but Mrs. Patel came highly recommended and so I decided to go with her rather than a local attorney. I am glad I did because my case was handled with prompt attention by a detail oriented and knowledgeable attorney. I was able to get quick results at an affordable price. I also appreciated the friendly manner in which I was treated and the attorney’s willingness to answer all my questions and give me detailed explanations when requested. I have and will continue to recommend her to family and friends with the utmost confidence.

Mital has handled estate planning for me in the past and is now handling my divorce. I will certainly go back to her to do my estate planning post divorce. She is knowledgeable, honest & extremely dependable. She understands your needs and can deliver what she promises. She has her clients best interest at heart and will provide you with the best advice for your situation. She quickly makes you feel comfortable and at ease when meeting with her.
