Martha Child has been my attorney for 15 years. During that time, I have recommended her to family, friends, and co-workers. Not one person has ever complained of Ms. Child's legal representation of them. I have always been pleased with Ms. Child's handling of my legal matters. Recently, she assisted me with the probate of my Mother's will. Ms. Child is painfully honest, dependable, her prices reasonable, and she explains your options completely. I LOVE not having to search for a place to park downtown every time I meet with her. Her assistant is pleasant, helpful, and conscientious. I know of no other attorney I would use or recommend to anyone I care about.

On the flip side...If you are looking for someone to be dishonest, lie, manipulate facts, and sugarcoat things in order to please you--Ms. Child is definitely NOT the attorney for you!

I highly recommend Martha Chil...

I highly recommend Martha Child. She was the only one who really listened to my situation with my daughter and the problems I was having with the court order for my weekend and holiday times I was to have my child. I went back and forth to court on several occasions, had many, many, sleepless nights worrying about my daughter and the problem I was having to see her and even talk to her. Ms. Child was the only one I feel really took my situation as serious as I did. As a result of Ms. Child's work, the way she presented everything to the court, and all, I was able to see my daughter and was also granted custody of her.

Thank you Ms. Child.

Martha has been my attorney for the last 30 years. She has handled all of my legal

issues. She has helped write wills for both myself and my wife. Martha helped my

family get a conservatorship for my father and name change for my grandson.

She has always been a professional and she personally knows all of the judges in

Nashville, As a result, she is well-respected by the legal community. I would

recommend Martha Child for any legal need.

I have used Martha's services a couple of times over the years (divorce, parenting plan, custody arrangements ect.) I have always found her to be up front honest and reasonably priced. Her administrative help is awesome, my phone calls always get returned and things seem to get taken care of quick. Small office is a big plus for me because i like people to remember my name when i come back in and i appreciate the personal face time.

Martha Child is a lawyer who knows the law! I highly recommend her. We have used her on several occasions, business and personal, and have referred many friends & family to her. Every single referral has reported an A+ rating back to me and commented on her fare price. Martha Child is powerful, assertive, trustworthy and reliable. She is prompt in returning our calls and responding to emails. This lawyer establishes knowledge, trust and confidence immediately. I highly recommend Martha Child to anyone!



Avoid this lawyer at all cost.

I’ve had the displeasure and misfortune of hiring this incompetent lawyer. In general a nice woman, but I’m sure the barely 30yr old court appointed defense attorney that ate her lunch thought so too. I was embarrassed to even think I paid for this level of representation. The judge himself stated, the next time I have a problem I should save my money and contact the court first. I walked into court with a friendly happy to get along attorney that was completely walked over by a younger more aggressive court appointed defense attorney. She talks a good game but in the court room, you are better off alone. If you are looking for a mediator that doesn’t like or know how to handle confrontation this is your lawyer.
