About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

Born in 1957 in Columbia, Tenn., Bob Harlan was raised on his family’s farm in Hampshire, Tennessee in western Maury County. Harlan worked in the family businesses – learning the ins and outs of the agricultural industry – until he graduated high school and attended college at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Growing up on a working farm, Harlan has knows and understands, first-hand, the value of hard work and the importance of careful financial management. Today, Harlan still lives and works on his family’s farm where he operates a cattle-farming operation in addition to his full time law practice. This appreciation and respect for land and a rural way of life affords Harlan a special understanding of the unique needs of clients in the southern middle Tennessee region that he serves.
