Knoxville divorce attorney Amy R. Smith practices family law because of her belief that family is the bedrock for all of our experiences and our frame of the world.

“Family law issues are typically charged with emotion and fraught with uncertainty,” Ms. Smith said. “It is an honor to assist clients with navigating those turbulent waters, protecting their interests, and obtaining the best possible results in the end.”

Divorce typically involves a lot of emotional highs and lows. With that being the case, Ms. Smith focuses on bringing a balanced approach to each case.

“I try to approach each case with the perfect blend of top-notch skill, understanding, advocacy, efficiency, and professionalism,” she said.
