Not Just Experience


About James L. Weatherly Jr., Attorney At Law

I am attorney Jim Weatherly, a member of the law firm of Weatherly, McNally & Dixon PLC.  Since my licensing to practice law in 1975, I have been continuously active as a licensed attorney in state and federal courts, and professionally in leadership positions in many legal organizations and in my community. My accomplishments have been recognized by my peers in the legal profession as well as by clients I have served. For more information about my background and qualifications, follow this link:

My legal career began with a focus on criminal law, resulting in my election as the public defender for metro Nashville-Davidson County, Tennessee, in 1982. While my practice in criminal law matters continues, over the years I have developed a strong concentration on domestic relations and family law. Today, practice areas of my law firm include criminal defense, divorce, custody and support of children, personal injury, and civil litigation.

Experience Combined With Awareness Of Current Trends

A strong legal education and a distinguished career matter a great deal. At the same time, an effective attorney must stay on the cutting edge to be ready to advise clients well. There is no substitute for experience. I have built my law firm and law practice on a long track record of client-centered representation and results. I have also made it a point to keep my practice nimble and up-to-date through continuing legal education and active membership and involvement in professional organizations.

Providing Individual Attention To Every Case

I never assume I know what course of action to recommend to a new client until I have a firm grasp of the facts. If I am your lawyer for your Tennessee divorce, we will collaborate closely. I will keep you well-informed and advocate for your interests at every turn to ensure the best results.
