Areas of Law We Practice

Personal Injury
& Medical Malpractice

If you suffered personal injuries in an accident or at the hands of medical or healthcare providers in Tennessee or Virginia, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Criminal Law

With two former District Attorneys on our staff, no case is too big or too small. We handle everything from Murder to Speeding Tickets in both Tennessee and Virginia.

Family Law

Unfortunately, the area of Family Law provides some of the most stressful and high-risk cases and litigation. During these stressful times, you should look to and trust our firm for your family law needs.

Probate & Estate Planning

Estate Planning includes the drafting of Wills, Trusts, Living Trusts and Power of Attorneys. Probate is the process by which the assets of the decedent (the loved one who has passed) is legally transferred to the rightful heirs.

    I have been practicing law for 30 years in Tennessee and Virginia. I have had the opportunity to observe Mr. Culbertson in and out of the court room over the years. I also obtained his services on a personal child custody issue. He is smart, honest, and hardworking. You will not find a more well respected, effective lawyer in the Tri-Cities.

    I have to express to any of those who may be wondering who to place your legal concerns with. Sam Hall who is part of this group is wonderful! He didn't rush me in the explanation of my case and did a thorough examination of the documents, going above and beyond what I expected for a consultation. As we all know "time is money" but this gentleman was so generous and kind with his time and genuinely concerned for my situation. I truly have to say he has restored my reliance in legal representatives.
