Our Approach

Legal solutions are as varied as the individuals, families, businesses and organizations that experience legal needs. At Papa & Roberts, we understand that clients expect insightful, balanced legal guidance and advocacy and that every client does not fit into the same mold. We also know that too often lawyers can make the problem worse instead of better. As a result, we tailor our legal and consulting services to respond to the specific needs presented by our clients in ways that makes good business, emotional, and financial sense.

This approach to the practice of law means we consistently provide our clients with top quality traditional legal services, including business advising, representation in adoption, and probate. Other times our lawyers use more innovative alternative dispute resolution methods such as business/ civil or family mediation or collaborative divorce to solve the legal problem parties face. Still other clients are more interested in preventive services, including trainings, workshops, and coaching that are designed to minimize conflict, and move through it productively when it occurs.

The attorneys at Papa & Roberts, PLLC have a great deal of experience assessing clients’ legal needs, educating them about their options, and guiding them through disputes with as little stress and expense as possible. We are particularly adept at assisting clients who wish to maintain a healthy relationship with the party with whom they are in conflict after the dispute is resolved. For divorcing families, that means a solid focus on positioning parents to co-parent well after the divorce so that the children’s needs are addressed in a constructive way. For businesses and organizations, the focus on relationships allows companies to have the option of continuing to do business following the dispute in ways that are profitable or otherwise mutually beneficial for both sides.

We encourage you to explore our site to see if our approach to family law, business law, probate, mediation, and organizational development can be of use to you or your organization. We serve clients in Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, and surrounding counties. To schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys, please call 615-767-5900 or email us.
