Your Tennessee Connection
Gilreath & Associates works with attorneys in all types of serious injury cases. We value working with co-counsel and referring attorneys to sustain long-term relationships and build new ones. Whether you have a case to refer, or you seek local counsel in Tennessee on behalf of a client, Gilreath & Associates welcomes your referral. We do not charge fees for initial consultations, and we always welcome calls from other attorneys with questions about our practice or Tennessee law. We appreciate building relationships with attorneys as much as we do building relationships with our clients.
If you have a client you would like to introduce to us, please give us a call. We are available to meet with your client in your office or ours, at your convenience, and will work with you to structure the case in a way that best meets the needs of your client.
Tennessee is a diverse state. Depending on the circumstances, the choice of venue can make a significant difference in the outcome of the case. We are experienced in handling cases in all venues in Tennessee. Contact us to discuss the nature of your case to determine whether a Tennessee venue may be beneficial to how your case is handled. Certain special cases allow for application of Tennessee law to parties or events outside the state. Please contact our Tennessee attorneys to discuss how we may be of help to your particular case.
Whether calling to discuss a case, or just to discover a new destination to visit, we hope you will consider us your Tennessee connection. Feel fee to contact Chris Gilreath at 800-637-7024 or .
We look forward to working with you.
