About the Firm

It seems impossible now: when I started practicing law in 1996, the attorneys at my firm did not have computers on their desks. Since then technology has radically changed things, empowering attorneys to greatly eliminate overhead and transform their business models into client-focused, hyper-efficient systems. T McKee Law is one such result, consciously created to provide clients with personalized and accessible legal solutions at fair, transparent and affordable rates.

As the principal attorney, my delivery model is not the only thing that distinguishes me from most other attorneys. The diversity and breadth of my experiences are rare, if not unique. The path of my two-decades-plus career has been:

  • eight years as a litigator handling complex commercial and employment litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts;
  • ten years as in-house general counsel of Meharry Medical College and an international aid nonprofit;
  • seven years of
    • private practice representing businesses and individuals in matters of employment, nonprofit and general business law; and
    • developing and teaching courses at various institutions, including Lipscomb University, the Center for Nonprofit Management, and Vanderbilt University School of Law.

I love being a lawyer. Not only has it forged me into a problem-solver, but it also has provided me with the skills and abilities to be a problem-avoider. If you have a legal emergency or crisis, I can be your fire extinguisher. If you are trying to navigate through stormy seas of rules and regulations, I can be your lighthouse. There is nothing more personally satisfying to me than to help people, and the law empowers me to do so. There is nothing more gratifying than to have a client feel that they have found in me a trusted advisor: one who can simplify seemingly complex obstacles and free them to address matters with confidence. I value all opportunities to serve clients — no matter how big or small the matter, or the client.

I have been blessed with opportunities to serve my community as a volunteer and director for various nonprofits. I currently serve as a director and committee chair for Siloam Health and as a director for Achilles Nashville. For fun, I play and build guitars, build furniture, and raise backyard chickens.
