About Rebecca S. Montgomery

Why I Advocate for Families and Working Professionals in Nashville, Tennessee

Growing up on a farm in Ohio instilled in me a passion to fight for those who often feel overlooked, ignored, or discounted by the law.


I have represented people from all walks of life in the Tennessee legal system - including professionals, working-class families, the LGBT community, and Nashville’s diverse ethnic communities - who found respect, acceptance, and fierce compassion by choosing me as their lawyer.


As a blue collar warrior of sorts, I pride myself on being a fighter and an advocate with a genuine empathy for my clients. I get as much from my relationships with my clients as they do from my advocacy during their legal crisis.


While I won’t guarantee results (it’s irresponsible) - I will guarantee that you will have a passionate, experienced lawyer on your side working as hard as possible until your current conflict is over.


My experience:

  • Former magistrate (appointed judge) for juvenile court in Davidson County, Tennessee.

  • Previously in Tennessee state government as a General Counsel for the Tennessee Supreme Court's Administrative Office of the Courts; General Counsel for the Tennessee Department of Children's Services; Legal Counsel for the Tennessee Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges; and Assistant General Counsel for the Tennessee Regulatory Authority.

  • Represented numerous clients in divorce, child custody, visitation, child support, and paternity cases in Nashville’s courts.

  • Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 Listed Mediator for family cases (with specific training in domestic violence).

  • Advocate for clients from the LGBT community with an emphasis on their unique family law needs as well as preparation of powers of attorney, wills, partnership agreements, and other estate planning documents.

  • Advising and assisting clients in proactive estate planning.

  • Honors Graduate of the Nashville School of Law and Ohio Northern University.

  • Member of Tennessee Bar Association (Founding Member of LGBT Section); Nashville Bar Association; Lawyers Association for Women; Tennessee Association of Professional Mediators.
