About Thomas J. Drake

Attorneys used to paint their name on a board and hang the board in front of their house to advertise.  The board was a shingle, so "Hanging out my Shingle" meant starting a law practice.  I hung out my shingle in 1988.  I started my law office by going to court to help people who were arrested on drug charges, DUI charges, any other charges.  Since then, my practice has expanded into divorce law, business law, will and estate planning, business collections, and a number of other areas that allow me to help individuals, businesses and other organizations throughout Nashville and Middle Tennessee. 

With that growth, I continue to believe that my greatest service is a committment to be of help and to offer the best legal advice possible.
