Client Reviews
Donald B. February 8, 2024
Absolute Legal Expert!! Honest, Caring, One of the Divorce and custody cases are painful, difficult, and seemingly hopeless. Mr. Barnett took my extremely complex and difficult case and achieved what I never believed possible. He has built a team of talented professionals that help you navigate this gut-wrenching journey with compassion and understanding of what you and your family are struggling to get through. He is a well-respected expert amongst other lawyers and members of the legal field, yet he never forgets to keep his client aware of what is transpiring and answers countless emails and calls in ways that help the average person understand what is occurring. He understands what everyone is going through and never stops trying to do what is right for the family. Because of him and his team's devotion and expertise, my sons are now thriving, and the trajectory of their lives has been changed for the better. I will never even consider any other lawyer to represent me. I could not ask for more from a lawyer. He has strong character, solid values, and an unrelenting work ethic that is not matched in his field. We owe him more than money could ever repay.

I practice primarily Divorce and Custody law throughout East Tennessee. This field allows me to make a real difference in the outcome of a client on a daily basis.

I give direct and realistic advice to each client based on their personal scenario and work very hard to ensure that each maximizes the circumstance they find themselves facing.

My attorneys and staff work as a team to tackle your issue. I help each client develop specific understanding of their legal issue to provide the knowledge to make an informed decision.

I am a native Tennessean and proud Graduate of Lee University and The University of Tennessee Law School. I was very fortunate to be mentored by great women and men throughout my life and strive to guide my clients in that same caring way.
