TVA’s attorneys come to the law from vastly different backgrounds but share a passionate commitment to excellence and professionalism in everything we do for our clients and the legal community.  We respect and revere the law and seek to be faithful stewards of the legacy created by those who came before us.  Our goal as attorneys is to follow the advice of that simple country lawyer from Kentucky:

“The leading rule for the lawyer, as for the man of every other calling, is diligence.  Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today.  Never let your correspondence fall behind.  Whatever piece of business you have in hand, before stopping, do all the labor pertaining to it which can then be done…

There is a vague popular belief that lawyers are necessarily dishonest…Let no young man choosing the law for a calling for a moment yield to the popular belief – resolve to be honest at all events; and if in your own judgment you cannot be an honest lawyer, resolve to be honest without being a lawyer.  Choose some other occupation, rather than one in the choosing of which you do, in advance, consent to be a knave.”

– Abraham Lincoln, July 1, 1850
