Meet Our Team

The attorneys at HMC Civil Rights have dedicated their careers and their practices to fighting for civil rights in Tennessee. Located just outside of Nashville, we are well-situated to serve the rights of our clients throughout the state of Tennessee.

We focus our practice exclusively on the representation of employees who have experienced harassmentretaliation, or discrimination in the workplace; students who have experienced sexual harassment or discrimination; and persons who have been mistreated and suffered at the hands of law enforcement. Whether your case is related to your race, sex, disability, religion, medical leave, nationality, age, or LGBT status, we will stand up for you.

Our Active Trial Practice

We have an impressive record in State and Federal courts. We routinely try cases before a jury in Federal District Court and have successfully argued appeals at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

While other law firms choose to settle out of court for less than what you deserve, our team is prepared and has the skills to go to trial. Your rights are extremely important to us and we work diligently to help you obtain your day in court.
