He really helps!
Wr used Mr. Lords for my brother on a probation violation. Mr. Lords was attentive, honest, and helpful. He actually listened to my brother's needs, spoke with the DA, and got my brother an amazing deal. He was friendly, curteous, and talked with my brother to let him know what to expect. Mr Lords is young, but he's hungry...and if he sticks around Nashville, he will continue to be a force to be reckoned with. We can.see him becoming one of Nashville's top attorneys. We HIGHLY suggest hiring Mr. Lords if you find yourself in a jam! He will do everything he can to help you out!

Very Knowledgeable and Professional
I was highly impressed with the Law Offices of Lords & Cate. They helped me review my case and explained to me all of the options that I had. Mr. Lords stayed in great communication with me throughout the entire process and helped me get the results that I wanted. I highly recommend these two to handle your criminal case no matter the charge.

Appreciative Patron
Finding an attorney who is a beacon of knowledge, has unparalleled determination and a heart of gold sounds like a joke; until you've met Jesse Lords. My family and I are forever grateful for all of his hard work and will always turn to him for legal advice.

Jesse is tha truth!
I was looking for a lawyer to represent me on a few charges so I drove by the courthouse and flagged down a sharp looking lawyer- his suit was fly!! That suit was Jesse Lords!! He has represented me and my family on several charges since I hired him last year. I know Jesse's got my back. I won't ever hire another attorney but him.

Worst lawyer pure scam.
I hired Jesse Lords for a child support/divorce process since in his career Bio it clearly includes that it is what he "specializes in". Total waste of money and time. Been in the process for over a year now and when we paid him the retainer which was very expensive it ran out super fast for barely nothing. I myself did most of the work and when he did do something it would takes months and months to even receive a clarification on what was going on with court ect. I can barely see my daughter with a temporary parenting plan. He even started the child support first when i clearly wanted to be divorced first. Im sadly still married to a women who i haven't been with in more than 3 years now all because this Lawyer decides to do anything in his power to take money from you. Every excuse there is he has it. Never hire him if you value your money and time. Specially if your case is important to you. He even bills you wrong which is a joke to me and find it very disrespectful. If you hire him it's your loss. Beware, i don't understand any of the "good reviews" there are.

He is terrible and rude
I hired him to represent my son for a probation violation and he did nothing. He just took our money and basically let the prosecution do whatever they wanted. It was only a technical violation. He was unprepared and didn't even know the law.
Response from Jesse Lords June 10, 2018
Yolonda, what is your son’s name? There is absolutely no way that anything you stated here is true. I never “let the prosecution do whatever they want” on any of my cases. What area of law regarding your son’s case do I not know?
