The Best
My wife and I retained the services of MIles Mason’s Group recently for child support and parenting plan issues. We were very happy with the services that MMFLG provided. We were represented by Morgan Stanford who handled every step of our case, and Miles Mason provided his valuable insight and advice at every crucial point. Both Morgan and Miles listened to our concerns and took the time to understand our family dynamics. We couldn’t have been more happy with their services and the results.

Best lawyer for the job
I used Miles for an adjustment to my child support. When I went to the office, the staff was very professional and personal. Miles was attentive and caring. He has a great understanding of the law and process in divorce and child support process. He and his staff worked with me and my case in a way that exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend them and will use them again.

Outstanding Attorney
My son retained Miles Mason and is extremely pleased he did. He utilized another attorney for several years, as he had ongoing issues with visitations and related problems.with the mother of his child. He became dissatisfied with his former attorney, as the conflicts continued without resolution, and he came to realize this man did provide the expertise to resolve the issues he faced. Upon a strong recommendation from a client of Miles, he switched attorneys. It became quickly evident Miles and his team had the expertise and experience needed. After familiarizing himself with the case, Miles clearly articulated the options and made recommendations. His recommendations demonstrated he is a strategic thinker. Miles and his team did not over promise. Miles is the coach, and each team member provides a specific expertise. They were always accessible and a pleasure to work with. Miles was always involved but let his team perform their tasks. In the the end, the team approach was much more cost efficient and effective in obtaining results than dealing with a sole practitioner. Miles knows the legal system and how to operate within it to obtain desired results. Our family highly recommends the Miles Mason Law Group. Team members are highly skilled and extremely professional. Miles is a great advocate for his clients, and he gets results.

Trust without reservation
As an attorney, I am keenly aware of the importance of having the best lawyer you can get, as well as the admonition that a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client. When I've needed legal assistance for myself or my family, my first call is to Miles. I've grown in respect of his incisive legal mind ever since we were classmates in law school. Miles has alwys been extremely responsive to any questions I have, quickly focusing on the the core issue and coming up with a focused response. I have sought Miles' legal services on several personal/family matters. Not only did he give wise counsel and direction, he directed me to top quality adjunct professionals (for example, a forsensic psychologist) from a network he has developed over his years of practice. I have trust in Miles' counsel without any hesitation or reservation, and would call him again for legal representation should the need ever arise .

Completely Satisfied!!
I walked into the office of Miles Mason at a very difficult yet crucial time in my life. I was emotional and confused about the entire process because I never thought I would need a divorce lawyer. Miles Mason and his wonderful staff comforted me and assured me they would guide me through the process. He does not sugar coat things and I liked that about him. He is knowledgeable, confident and reassuring and I would recommend him to anyone.

Still an Involved Father
I can't begin to express my gratitude to Miles Mason and his team ! I was extremely uncertain of my future parenting role and was fearful of becoming a mere visitor in my child's life. Through careful and deliberate action by Mr. Mason, I was able to achieve the parenting time I desired, against the odds! I could not be more pleased at the outcome that Mr. Mason and team were able to attain for me. Thank-you Lynn for your counsel and friendship through the most difficult time in my life. I highly recommend the Miles Mason Family Law Group to guide you through the storm of divorce.

Best of the Best
A divorce is a trying time for anyone but Miles Mason walks you through it methodically, from start to end, laying out the overall plan and showing you the options at every turn. Anticipating where it could be problematic and how to most efficiently and effectively get it done. Experience counts and Miles is the one to turn to if you want an experienced professional. There are times in every divorce where you will wonder what your soon to be ex is doing and Miles already has a plan, has seen it before, and is well aware of the next steps you need to take. The closest comparison I can make is to a NFL Coach. Do you want one that is trying new ideas and is new to the scene or do you want the one who has won the Super Bowl five times already? Miles would prefer the comparison to Bear Bryant, I am sure but you get the idea. In closing, I would simply say that Miles was all I wanted but, more importantly, needed in an attorney. His staff and he are simply the best in Tennessee.

Unique advantage over other A-list family law attorneys
Miles knows the law and the system as well as the other 'A-list' family law specialists. However, he has the unique advantage of being a CPA as well. I saw first hand how this benefits his clients in multiple ways. Divorce is always difficult emotionally and Miles (and staff) handles this facet very well. However, contested divorces almost always come down to dollars. Miles always seemed to be a step or two ahead of the other side during negotiations without having to consult an outside CPA (which would have resulted in higher fees for me.) His fees were reasonable and I felt that I received value for all of the time I was billed for. Professionally, I have served as a court appointed special master many times and have worked with most of the 'A-list' family law attorneys in this area. Based on that experience, I chose to hire Miles. Based on how he and his staff handled my case, I recommend him to any friend who needs a family law specialist.

By far the best divorce attorney in Memphis
Mr. Mason represented me in a two-year long divorce battle. When I came to him, I was emotionally devastated by the dissolution of my marriage - in particular the detachment I was experiencing at the time from my ex-husband, who had been my life for nearly 20 years. Mr. Mason methodically worked my case, step by step, through a long process of transition. I went into his office a scared, "emotionally dependent upon a man" woman, blind to all of the legal maneuvers of my ex-husband. Mr. Mason educated me. His knowledge and foresight led me down the path of transformation. Facing a man I once saw as life itself who was now seeking to abandon me and his financial duty to provide for our children, I struggled early in the litigation to be strong and fight. When I was weak, Mr. Mason and his staff fought for me. When I was blind to the manipulation and legal maneuvering of my ex-husband, Mr. Mason was on top of it, doing his job. I credit Mr. Mason and his entire staff for helping me to gain control of my life - bolstering both my emotional ability and my legal position in the litigation to fight for what was right, and ultimately achieve it. TOP-NOTCH, PROFESSIONALISM: Having observed and interacted with multiple attorneys throughout the duration of my case, I had the opportunity to appreciate the stark contrast between other attorneys and mine. I was consistently impressed with the level of professionalism I encountered with every interaction I had with Mr. Mason and his entire staff. Every time I was in court with Mr. Mason, I thought to myself, "There's no other attorney I would want by my side" as I observed him confidently and aggressively representing me. My observations in court affirmed my impression that Mr. Mason is the cream of the crop. He demonstrated to me that his assertive poise (engaging with the judge and other attorneys) was grounded in formidable legal acumen. My ex-husband's comments about Mr. Mason probably provide the most significant review of all. After the divorce was finalized, he said to me, "If I had the kind of representation you had, things would have gone a lot better for me." I highly recommend Mr. Mason. His representation was at the core of transforming me from helpless victim to empowered conqueror. He not only got results, he turned my situation around 180 degrees...and my children reap the benefits.

Smart caring advocate for you
I have practiced family law in NC for close to 20 years and found myself in the position of needing to hire a TN attorney. Miles did everything I know from experience you need when dealing with a family law issue. He was caring, responsive, very smart and knew the judges and TN law thoroughly. He was aggressive when we needed it and helped us to see the big picture when we needed that. I would highly recommend Miles for any issues related to divorce and separation, including child custody.

Incredible Professional and Individual
Miles Mason is an incredible individual and professional to have on your side when life becomes very difficult. He is warm, compassionate, brilliant, strategic, and intimidating to the opposition. For instance, during my divorce, the opposition attorney became so flustered by Miles' scholarship, publications, and courtroom reputation that he succumbed to pitching a tantrum in front of the judge and later in front of mediators. In addition, Miles' staff share his compassionate and capable qualities making a very challenging and daunting process handable. I have used Miles on more than one occassion and will do so again, if the need arises. I cannot stress enough how insightful, compassionate, and incredibly capable Miles is! You will not find another like him!

Review/rating of Miles Mason
I was introduced to Miles Mason several years ago by a long-time business associate who had met Mr. Mason at a prior seminar. I employed Mr. Mason for a particular family legal matter. He was always extremely responsive to my concerns in a kind and instructive manner. He was almost always available when I called or quickly returned my call, and provided me keen insight into the legal process we had to go through. Not only did he represent me well, but he always made me feel like he really cared about my situation, and not just another client to make money from. We are friends today, and I would not hesitate to seek his help and advice in the future should I need it!

They care about you!
Miles Mason Family Law Group helped me when I needed an attorney for a custody case. They were compassionate as well as effective. I was very pleased with their staff and how I was kept informed as to how my case was proceeding. I would highly recommend them for any family law case.

Review for Miles
My now ex-wife was taking money out of my business and tried to cash in my investments. I had an attorney that really didn't know how to help me and so she sat on my case. My accountant recommended Miles Mason because he had worked with him in another case and knew he is also a CPA. Miles understood my situation, took charge and guided my case to the end.
