After his graduation from law school at the University of Tennessee in 1984, Jack had a general practice of law in Crossville until entering the construction field. In 2008, he once again took up the practice of law, focusing on construction related clients and cases. Jack represents builders, sub-contractors, material suppliers as well as home and project owners. He also assists business owners with organization (corporation, LLC, partnership), contract issues, account collections and their personal legal needs.
Jack represents clients in litigation involving construction contract and construction defect issues, as well as disputes over real estate transactions. Additionally, Jack represents clients in consumer transaction litigation. Also, he has training and experience in construction dispute mediation and arbitration.
With first hand experience of the busy schedules business owners keep, and the usual need to personally inspect construction in most cases, Jack goes to where his clients are to meet and discuss their legal issues.
