Snyder, J. I graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1987. Upon graduation I clerked for the Honorable Joe D. Duncan, Presiding Judge of the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals until his retirement on September 1, 1990. On September 1, 1990, I joined the District Attorney General's Office for the Fifth Judicial District (Blount County, Tennessee) until I went into private practice on September 1, 1996. Six years later, on September 1, 1996, founded the Law Office of James H. Snyder, Jr., and at the same time was honored to be appointed the first Juvenile Court Referee (now called "Magistrate) for Blount County, Tennessee (the position was a part-time position). Since 2003 and have devoted my practice to handling difficult domestic cases (divorce, post-divorce, custody, etc.).and related matters.
