About Us


Client service is our central focus.

Our lawyers understand that each file we handle could be your biggest challenge, and it’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly. One of the first things we tell new clients is, “You can stop worrying so much now. Your problem is now our problem to solve.”

On every engagement, we

endeavor to:

Focus on achieving the best result, in the most direct and cost-efficient manner.

The initials “AW” stand for Anthony Watson, but they also mirror a frequently repeated motto: “Always Win.” We have too much litigation experience to believe that a lawyer can win every case, but we also know that victories in legal matters can come in a variety of forms, including a smart, well-negotiated resolution. 

Work harder, and smarter, than the other side

We each have more than 20 years of experience, but knowing the law is only part of being a good lawyer. What sets us apart is unique insight when it comes to the law, and our ability to get our clients to their goals with less hassle and frustration.

Make our legal work align with your business objectives.

We provide creative, strategic advice that furthers your larger business goals.  Our law firm is built on repeat referrals from long-term clients who have worked with us for our entire careers. These clients know that we will handle their immediate legal issues with an eye toward our future relationship.

Communicate transparently, honestly and authentically.

We handle complex legal matters in a straight-forward way. Many first-time clients are surprised by the level of candor, directness and efficiency with which we approach our work. Legal issues don’t need to be more difficult than necessary, and, if a direct path to resolution (or to avoid litigation altogether) exists, we will make sure clients are presented with that option.

Be the lawyers you enjoy calling.

If we’re doing our jobs well, we are more than just the lawyers you call when you have a big legal question. You’re calling us when a small issue comes up, or we’re calling you to check in and follow up on an issue from last year. Our clients appreciate this, and we serve an essential role as “trusted advisor” to many clients, who seek our opinion on routine business issues.

- Christopher Jackson, president, Nashville African American Healthy Marriage Initiative

Glen is the lawyer you want on your side. He is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He took the difficult legal jargon and transformed it into practical terminology for an ordinary guy like me to understand.

- Jeremy McCoy, Tennessee entrepreneur

I worked alongside David in a complex Chapter 11 Bankruptcy trying to save a struggling medical company. Even though he represented the primary creditor, he recognized that the best outcome for all involved was to help the company to continue to operate. Without his contributions, we would not have succeeded. I’d recommend David without hesitation.

- Dan Rexford, Equity Partners, Inc.

I use Glen Watson as my corporate and personal legal counsel. No matter how complex the issues, Glen is always a good teacher and can clearly explain the technicality of the issues and our available options.
