Prenuptial Agreements

Our attorneys negotiate, draft and review prenuptial agreements that help couples enter into marriage with their eyes open and on the same page regarding each other’s finances and what they should expect in the event the marriage dissolves.

Full-Service Law Firm Serving Brentwood and Franklin, Tennessee

Although family law is our main area of practice, clients often return to us when they have legal needs in other areas of the law. We are happy to apply our skills and expertise as experienced negotiators, mediators and litigators to resolve disputes and provide assistance in any of the following areas:

Criminal Defense and DUI

If you’ve been charged with driving under the influence, domestic violence, sex crimes, drug offenses or other Tennessee misdemeanor or felony offenses, we’ll work to resolve your matter in a way that achieves the best outcome. Our team is prepared to attack the charges or negotiate a plea for an excellent outcome like diversion or probation. We’ll also defend you in court when it’s in your best interests to fight the charges and seek a Not Guilty verdict or acquittal from the court. We’ll protect your rights and make sure you are treated fairly by the police and prosecution from arrest all the way through trial.

Personal Injury

If you’ve been hurt because of the negligence of another person or business, we can help you prove your case and get the appropriate amount of compensation from the insurance company for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other legal damages that flow from the accident. If we can’t negotiate a fair settlement because the defendant and their insurer say they aren’t to blame for your injuries, that your own negligence caused the accident, or that your injuries aren’t serious, we’ll take them to court and let a jury decide who’s right. Our comprehensive personal injury practice includes car wrecks, dog bites, slip and fall cases, defective products, and wrongful death. If we can’t get a recovery for you, we won’t charge you any fee.

Business Services & Litigation

Whether you are just starting out in business or running an established company, we provide a range of business legal services including entity formation, contract drafting, employment agreements, legal compliance and other assistance to help your business grow and thrive. When disputes arise that can’t be resolved without legal help, our team of experienced courtroom litigators are ready to prosecute or defend your interests in Williamson and Franklin County courts. Our litigation practice includes breach of contract and business tort allegations, partnership disputes, regulatory compliance and more.

Estate Planning and Probate

Our family law clients often visit us after a divorce, adoption or other family life event that causes them to revisit their estate plan or recognize that creating an estate plan is long past due. Count on Beal, Nations & Crutcher to draft the right set of wills, trusts, healthcare advance directives and powers of attorney to make sure you and your family are cared for and looked after during your lifetime and after you are gone.
