Client Reviews
Alex H. February 24, 2023
Trustworthy, quick, and competent Seamus has assisted my company in a number of legal matters, including writing employment contracts, researching investment laws, and reviewing vendor agreements. He communicated clearly and honestly and made himself available as needed. I'd recommend him highly.
Ryan O. February 22, 2023
Knowledgeable, Empathetic and Responsive Services I have been lucky to retain Seamus Kelly of Music City Law as my legal counsel. Seamus brings an exceptional knowledge of law and unique ability to quickly identify a course of action. Seamus does an excellent job of meeting timelines and setting expectations. Seamus is courteous and professional. He takes the time to understand the full scope of our needs as a business. We have utilized Seamus primarily for employment law, contract negotiation and drafting service agreements. Additional legal advice was provided for trademarking, starting a business and generally navigating legal jargon. Seamus makes himself available on OUR time and is very generous with his time. I highly recommend Music City Law and Seamus Kelly.
Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial MediaResponsive Law

Seamus received a bachelor's degree in Business and Political Science from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland and his law degree from Vanderbilt Law School here in Nashville. While at Vanderbilt, Seamus received several awards for leadership in the Nashville community, clinical work, and academic achievement. Seamus also served as Editor-in-Chief of Vanderbilt's environmental journal ELPAR and coauthored an article about environmental legal scholarship.

In between Trinity and Vanderbilt, Seamus spent several years managing, launching, and closing down restaurants throughout the Greater Philadelphia area, all while writing and performing music.

Prior to forming Music City Law in 2019 with David Goldman, Seamus spent six years working for a civil litigation firm in Nashville where he worked on a vast array of national and local cases and handled legal issues for many Nashville clients and organizations.

Seamus lives on Music Row with his rambunctious dog, Cully, and when he's not at work can typically be found at the dog park, a live music venue, or enjoying the ever-blossoming Nashville restaurant scene.
