Meet the new lawyers fighting for justice for you and your loved ones

Michael Fisher, personal injury and workers’ compensation crusader

Michael has a long history of doing the right thing. The son of a DEA agent, Michael thought he wanted to work in criminal justice – and then one of his sisters started studying law. He shifted to the legal system and fell in love with justice system during his time with the Rutherford County Public Defender’s office. He became the tough crusader he is today through working on behalf of injured employees who struggled to get help through our difficult and complex workers’ compensation program.  At Rocky McElhaney Law he has expanded his specialization to help all injury victims across the personal injury spectrum.

Sam Wright, the escapee from “the dark side”

Tennessee-lifer and young Jedi Sam Wright started his law career working for an insurance defense firm too, but quickly realized that wasn’t where his heart was.  His genuine compassion and his longing to help  make a substantial difference in the lives of his Volunteer State neighbors is what led him to our door.  As a Junior Associate, Sam’s fresh perspective helped us build a new, smoother intake process for clients.    Sam’s role is divided between meeting with potential new clients in the home or hospital, helping answer questions and ease burdens, filing and handling motions, and conducting vital investigations and legal research.

Zack Smith, the Renaissance man

Zack is more than just a lawyer: he’s a scholar, a sportsman, a film buff, a volunteer, an ally, a philosopher, and an overall Renaissance man. Zack is a Junior Associate and a member of our intake team, which means we can add another title to his impressive list: your first point of contact and the person (and voice!) you can trust.  Zack’s passion for the law is palpable and his fervor for helping others is remarkable.  Welcome aboard Zack!

Meet our new paralegals

Merilyn Hale, the Medical Records Coordinator

Ginger Ecton, the extra set of hands we all wish we had

Ginger plays a very important and specialized role at the firm as our new Floating Paralegal.  She is the extra set hands we all wish we had- and now we do!  Ginger provides direct legal and administrative support to our paralegal team and to each one of our clients. The role demands that she constantly be on the same page which the paralegal she is assisting, and that she demonstrates unquestionable flexibility, versatility and communication skills.  We are certain that Ginger’s 7 years of paralegal experience and background in business operations and customer relations will help her easily “sync” into her new position within the department.

Does hiring all these new people have an effect on my case?

Yes.  A good one.

“The way I see it,” says Rocky McElhaney.  “’The Best Attorney in Nashville’,” can’t live in the past.  In order to create a better future for our clients: We must make big, bold moves.  We must recognize quickly where we could be better, employ new methods, hire new diverse talent, and make our services more convenient.  We must keep lunging whole-heartedly toward tomorrow with the understanding of what our clients are facing, and what their needs are, well before they do.”

Some personal injury law firms don’t look that far ahead, but that foresight is just one of the things that make us ‘The Best” choice for legal representation.  We are continuously stocking our legal arsenal with the right staff, the right resources, and the right technology needed to get our clients through the tunnel and to the light at the end of it, as quickly and as smoothly as possible.
