About Russell Whitt Adkins

Attorney Biography

I consider myself a trial lawyer, and not just a litigator. This means that I begin preparing for trial as soon as I open the file. I believe that favorable settlements are best negotiated from a position of strength. And when trial is necessary, my goal is to be the best-prepared lawyer (with the best-prepared client) in the courtroom. But results matter most, and I am proud of the outcomes that I have achieved for my clients.

My areas of experience include personal injury cases, professional liability defense, commercial, probate, employment and workers' compensation litigation, and governmental liability.

Most disputes are best resolved privately through the mediation process. I am designated by the Tennessee Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission as a Rule 31 listed general civil mediator. I am available to help individuals and businesses resolve issues economically, and on their own terms.
