MEET FOUNDING / MANAGING ATTORNEY

JOSETTE M. CHAMBERS, ESQ.

I earned a B.A. degree in economics from Fisk University, and a J.D. from the University of California’s Hastings College of Law where I served as an editor of its Constitutional Law Journal. I also am licensed to practice law in three states: Illinois (inactive), Georgia, and Tennessee.

I have over 25 years as a transactional attorney and as a litigator in the state and federal courts of each state in which I am barred, and I’ve taken on the tasks of lawyering as personal adventures. As examples, I first- and second-chaired rate hike cases involving Commonwealth Edison and other Illinois public utility companies, and developed / implemented the City of Springfield, Illinois’ City Sales Tax Division. In Atlanta, in addition to representing several City Council members and their departments, I served on Mayor Maynard Jackson’s Advisory Team during negotiations of several contracts including those involving the construction of the Olympic Stadium for the 1996 Olympics. I also served as in-house counsel for a Korean-owned corporation servicing L.A.’s Korean community, and, for fun, have helped music and film artists structure airtight deals.

Since relocating back to the ‘Ville, as I call Nashville aka Music City, I’ve represented plaintiffs in housing discrimination matters.

I’ve now streamlined my practice and advocate for my plaintiff clients in wrongful foreclosure matters. Beginning May 2013, my offerings will expand to include the Veterans and Disability Rights Legal Services Program (i.e., disability rights for soldiers and their spouses) in honor of my late great father, a personal hero who just so happened to be both a Korean War and Viet Nam Veteran.
