Public Figure Divorce
Tennessee High-Profile and Public Figure Divorce
With more than 100 years of combined trial experience, we dedicate our professional lives to the fight for justice and to protect the quality of life for you and your loved ones, through highly personalized service and an unwavering commitment to excellence.
Although the same statutes and rules of court apply to divorcing celebrities as they do to any other citizen, the fact of celebrity by itself can present a complicating factor in a high-profile divorce. Because the documents filed in a divorce case are public records, tabloid media access to the personal details of a famous person’s marital difficulties can also generate problems. Contact an experienced divorce lawyer at Hollins, Raybin & Weissman, P.C. in Nashville if you’re concerned about the complications, annoyances, and threats to your career that a high-profile divorce case can present.
The four members of the law firm who practice in family law each average more than 20 years of practice, and we have the experience and strategic sense necessary to minimize the personal discomfort and damage to reputation that a celebrity divorce can sometimes cause. We have represented civic leaders, corporate executives, recording artists, entertainers, and professional athletes in divorce cases all over Tennessee.
As well as serving our high-profile clients’ interests with respect to issues such as asset protection, alimony, enforcement of a prenuptial agreement, or arrangements for child support, we can help manage the public perception of your case through productive media relations and strategically timed statements or releases. Our sophisticated and cooperative approach to public image maintenance, and when necessary, repair, can relieve a great deal of the additional strain that a public figure divorce can entail.
There is seldom much we can do to prevent any embarrassing details of your personal life from becoming public information, particularly if your divorcing spouse is determined to exploit the media as a vehicle for gaining tactical advantages in a property division or child custody dispute. At the same time, however, we can do quite a lot to reduce the damage of any public revelation might cause in your divorce case and in the broader context of your career and reputation.
Just as you are outstanding in your field, we have established solid reputations for excellence in our own. Of the five members of our firm who represent divorce clients, several attorneys are listed among the Best Lawyers in America and have been elected to leadership positions in the Tennessee Bar Association and the Nashville Bar Association. Four of us are AV-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review system, while the other is a former Circuit Court judge.
