The Working Law Firm


Founded in 2006, the Working Law Firm quickly gained a reputation as one of the best law firms in Memphis for its successful defense of clients in both civil and criminal court. In 2014, the Working Law Firm moved to Cooper-Young in the heart of Midtown Memphis. We provide big city representation with small town neighborhood charm. When you need a Memphis lawyer who can provide quality legal representation with a personal touch, call the Working Law Firm.


Long ago, attorneys focused on their clients, not just legal issues. We still do. Rather than being a firm that takes a lot of cases in one particular field of law, the Working Law Firm provides a full range of legal services for their clients. When we represent a client, we want to make them a client for life. In the real world, it is not just gang members that get accused of crimes. Often, it is a small business owner that had a little too much holiday cheer and needs the best DUI lawyer in town. It is that same small business owner who needs a will or trust made to take care of his family and the business that he worked so hard to build. That same business owner may need an aggressive business attorney to protect his business by enforcing his contracts or defending him in a breach of contract lawsuit. Sadly, that same small business owner may one day seek a divorce and need a lawyer who knows how valuable his assets are.


The Working Law Firm provides quality legal representation in a boutique setting. We give our clients the personal time and attention they need in matters that are deeply important to them. If you are looking to establish a long-term relationship with a Memphis trial attorney, call the Working Law Firm today.


Criminal Defense


There are a lot of Memphis criminal defense law firms, but it would be hard to find one better than the Working Law Firm. Many Memphis attorneys work dozens of cases each day. We don’t, and we never will. At the Working Law Firm, we treat our clients like real people with real problems. How effective can a defense lawyer be who represents fifty people a week compared to a lawyer who only works for five? At the Working Law Firm, our clients never get lost in the shuffle. We don’t want to be the Memphis criminal defense law firm that represents the most clients. We want to be the best Memphis criminal defense law firm that gets the best results.


At the Working Law Firm, we offer the experience of some of the best criminal defense attorneys in Memphis, but give you the individual attention you deserve.

Nothing is worse than the loss of family, the loss of stability, and the loss of one's home and children. Divorce lawyers often see good people at their worst. At the Working Law Firm, we can guide you through this difficult process while pursuing your interests and obtaining the best results possible. Divorces must be done right, or they never end. Custody disputes, alimony and visitation rights can be re-litigated for years. Our goal is to do it right the first time, so that it is the only time. Going through a divorce can be one of the most emotionally challenging experiences in a person's life. At the Working Law Firm, our top Memphis divorce attorneys understand this, and we will help you obtain a divorce decree that protects your interests and the interests of your family.


The dissolution of a marriage can be tough for everyone involved, and we will work hard to settle all legal matters with your husband or wife in an amicable manner. Our Memphis family law attorneys are experienced negotiators, and we have helped many couples resolve their divorce-related disputes through mediation.


That said, the Working Law Firm is known for having one of the toughest divorce litigation teams in Memphis. If necessary, we do not hesitate to seek justice for our clients, and we will zealously protect their right to receive the proper divorce agreement and/or settlement.
