Divorce & Family Law:
Divorce & Division of Military Retirement:
There are numerous misconceptions about the division of military retirement pay in event of a divorce. For example, many people believe that the couple must have been married for at least ten years with ten years of military service (the “10/10 rule") in order for the non-service member spouse to be entitled to any portion of the military retirement pay.

Military PCS; Tennessee’s Parental Relocation Act & Your Custody Rights:
Relocation is a way of life for our military service members.

This is addressed in the Tennessee Parental Relocation Act codified in Statute as T.C.A §36-6-108. This article is intended as a brief overview of the law.

Is There a Limit to a Vehicle Search By Consent?
It is rarely, if ever, in your best interest to allow a search of your vehicle by consent. However, we realize that this is a stressful situation and you may consent for many reasons: fear of the consequences of refusal or belief that the officers cannot possibly find anything illegal in your vehicle, for instance. So, if you willingly give consent for an officer to search your vehicle in Tennessee, and you are subsequently faced with criminal charges as a result of that search, are you simply out of options? Tennessee case law tells us “not necessarily.” If a person does give consent to search, an officer’s search can still be challenged if the search exceeded the scope of the consent. Click for more
How Is Bail Amount Determined in Tennessee?
According to the American Bar Association, the purpose of bail is simply to ensure that defendants who have been released will appear for trial and all pretrial hearings for which they must be present.

"Ryan has represented me for over 10 years and I have never been disappointed with the outcome of my cases. He is a smart guy that knows how to win."
MSG Sumner, Wayne
"I've had the pleasure of having Ryan represent me on a case and filing my divorce. I have been beyond pleased with the results of both. He is extremely professional, reliable and meticulous. I would highly recommend his services.."
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know of my experience with Ryan. Far too often, people are eager to write letters or make a phone call to complain, but I wanted to take the time to write you and tell you that I am VERY pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination of Ryan. Throughput my case he was always very quick to respond, made himself available during most times that most would consider after hours and always patient and explaining the status and details of my case.
Ryan, we can never thank you enough for all you have done for me and my family. You made a stressful time in our lives less stressful. If anyone is looking for a lawyer who cares about his clients, goes above and beyond and wins. Then Ryan is your guy.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
