Tennessee & Virginia General Practice Attorney
Personal injury, family law, criminal law & litigation lawyer
When you are facing a legal crisis, you want the comfort and peace of mind that comes from knowing that your attorney has the experience and skill necessary to resolve the issue. Since 1981, I have done exactly that for my clients. I have represented individuals and businesses in a range of legal matters throughout Tennessee and Virginia. I am known for aggressively protecting my clients' interests — both in the courtroom and across the negotiating table. It is a reputation I have earned.
Integrity. Tenacity. Results.
When you hire E. Lynn Dougherty, Attorney at Law, you hire a fighter. I know you have a lot on the line, so my excellent staff and I take the time to build a solid case and put in the work to obtain the best results possible in your case. If mediation is the right avenue to a favorable resolution, I am prepared to guide you through the process. If you are better served by litigation, I am always ready to represent you in a courtroom.
I moved my practice back home to the northeastern Tennessee/southwestern Virginia area in 1990. Prior to that I served in the U.S. Navy JAG Corps and worked in a large litigation firm in Norfolk, Virginia. Now, after practicing continuously for 30 years, I have a unique breadth and depth of knowledge and experience that I apply to each and every case. I am an AV® PreeminentTM Peer Review RatedSM attorney by Martindale-Hubbell® — the top ranking available and one reserved for attorneys who demonstrate the highest level of professional skill and integrity.
