Brenda Clark’s passion and life’s work is helping people through their toughest times in life.

Brenda has over 40 years of experience as a trial lawyer and was voted one of the 10 Best Family Attorneys in Nashville because of her deep experience, knowledge of the law, and aggressive advocacy for her clients.

Brenda Clark was named one of the best family lawyers in Nashville.

Brenda has over 40 years of experience as a trial lawyer. She is a former Senior Counsel for the Office of the Tennessee Attorney General where she handled high profile, complex cases, including representing 3 Governors.

Brenda is deeply experienced in every aspect of the trial process and understands the law inside and out. This makes her an effective and aggressive advocate to help you get the outcomes and resolutions you deserve.

In her time at the Attorney General’s Office, Brenda was often assigned to rescue cases in trouble just weeks before trial. She was known as an attorney who, according to their Chief Deputy Patsy Cottrell, was not simply a heavy hitter, but as someone who could be given an impossible case and “knock the ball out of the park.”

Why Brenda’s mission is to fight for people in their most difficult times in life

I was the first in my family to graduate from college. My grandmother always told me that with a good public education and hard work I could do anything I wanted. I saw my father with a second grade education achieve success through hard work and dedication to his family.

My parents taught me to work hard, always be honest, and never forget where I had come from. They taught me to give back to the community, serve others, and help people in need. Through my father, I saw that helping another in need was one of the most gratifying experiences of life.

That is why I have focused my legal career on first representing the people of Tennessee with the Attorney General’s office and now in representing people going through their toughest times in life.

“I pride myself on caring deeply about my clients and on being an aggressive advocate for them, who they trust and know in the bottom of their hearts will fight for them and work hard to get the outcome they deserve.”

Brenda’s Story
After leaving the Attorney General’s office, Brenda’s experiences, opportunities, and challenges led her to love helping people through the most stressful and difficult times of their lives.

Why Brenda helps people dealing with family law issues

When I began private practice, I had a lot of divorce cases come to me and quickly realized I had a real knack for working with people who were going through a traumatic situation, whose home life was broken. I had just separated from my husband, so I went through those feelings you have when going through a divorce, and it helped me do a better job because I had a different way of listening to people. And I found myself having a real ability to help those people land on their feet as well as they could after dealing with traumatic family issues.

Why Brenda helps people through the will and probate process

When I left the attorney general’s office, my neighbor Joni Twitty was in the middle of the disputed estate of her father Conway Twitty, the country music legend. I listened to her talk about what was happening and it seemed like it was really off track, so she asked me to come on board and help their team. I learned how important it is to family members left behind to know their loved one’s wishes are being honored in a way they wanted and the family is being taken care of. And we not only saved her father’s legacy and his music, but advocated with the state legislature to modify the law so other families wouldn’t have to go through what she and her family went through.

Voted one of the best lawyers in Nashville for Divorce, Child Custody, Wills & Probate, and more.


The goal in a divorce is to hopefully resolve it without going to trial, because trial is costly, stressful, and uncertain. But if you do go to trial, Brenda’s goal is to be an aggressive advocate on your behalf and fight for you to get a positive result, so that you don’t just survive this but thrive afterward.

Child custody and parenting plans

Disputes over legal custody of a child are about which parent has the legal right to make decisions about a child’s upbringing. Sometimes legal custody of a child needs to be changed as circumstances in the child’s life or in a parent’s life or actions warrants a change in the child’s best interest. Brenda cares deeply about making sure the best interests of a child are enacted.

Child Support Modification and Enforcement

If one parent has a significant change in income, either positive or negative, or a child’s needs drastically change, the amount of child support owed to the primary custodial parent may need to be modified. Or if a parent who is obligated to pay child support stops payment, Brenda can help you take legal action to compel the parent to pay the support.


A Will is a legal document that reflects your wishes about what should happen to your assets and property after you have passed away. Brenda will help you make sure your Will is valid, clear, legally sound, and will ensure your wishes are followed correctly.


Probate is the court-supervised process every Will goes through after the person who made it passes away that determines if the Will is valid and legally sound and then acts according to the Will’s wishes. Brenda works to make sure wishes are honored and that you get what you are entitled to.

Family Mediation

Mediation helps people resolve their disputes without going through the stress of a contested court case, the time that it takes, and the money that it costs. When you go to court there is a lot of uncertainty and the risks are high of not getting the outcome you want. Brenda has a good track record of settling cases, and helps people eliminate a stressful situation, fashion their own outcome, and saves them money.

Why clients say Brenda is “who you want fighting for you in court.”

Brenda is the best attorney that ever lived. She has seen my family through some really tough times. She is our angel. My son absolutely adores her. I’m pretty crazy about her myself. She is who you want fighting for you in court.

Through it all she never quit fighting for my child. She is a defender of those who are in need of a defender. She is dependable, loyal, unwavering in the face of adversity and has a compassionate, caring nature. These are just a few of the many attributes she has. One other word sums Brenda Clark nicely: WINNER!

Carrie Y.

In the end we won and our kids won. Brenda stood by us, guiding and fighting for us every step. She is an amazing person and a great attorney, and she was our Guardian Angel. Without her knowledge of the law and the compassion she has, we would not have won our case. We had been trying for years to win our case with no luck, until we found her… She saved our kids. Attorneys are not cheap so you don’t want to waste your money on just any attorney, Brenda Clark is a great attorney and someone you need to speak to before choosing an attorney, you can count on her to work hard for you.
