Diligent Divorce Lawyers in Knoxville, Serving Residents of Tennessee


Divorce is a complex and emotionally charged process. From filing the divorce to the litigation process, the legal team at Menefee & Brown, P.C. puts in the time and effort necessary to ensure your satisfaction with the end result. Contested divorces that require mediation or litigation necessitate an experienced team like attorneys Michael Menefee and Mark Brown, who take the appropriate measures to resolve any issues that may arise. As each divorce is unique, we work directly with you to unravel all the relevant facts and provide a fair result, and we are attentive and available to directly answer your questions as they arise.

Child Custody, Support & Adoption Issues Solved

Tennessee law mandates that all court orders for divorces involving a minor child must establish the authority and responsibility of each parent regarding the child. Allocating decision-making authority, setting child support payments, establishing child custody or arranging for adoption can be emotionally trying decisions. We understand the Tennessee state requirements and are experienced with working to ensure the safety and well-being of your children. We facilitate your ability to work effectively with the other parent to establish a plan consistent with legal requirements and to provide for a healthy, happy environment for your child that meets your expectations. However, if such a plan is not feasible, we work with the court to secure an order better reflecting the best interests of your child.

Dedicated Attorneys Negotiate Distribution of Assets & Spousal Support

The duration of a marriage generally has an enormous impact on the complexity of the divorce. This is due to the higher value of the marital assets accrued over the years. Attorneys Menefee and Brown work with you to forge an agreement that ensures you receive your equitable share of the marriage when the time comes in the divorce process for the division of assets. However, in the event of a contentious divorce, we are aggressive Knoxville family law attorneys who are not afraid to go to trial and fight for your assets.

Emphasizing Communication throughout Your Case


Our Knoxville lawyers take a unique approach for each individual case we handle. We realize that our clients come to us during times of crisis, be it during a family matter or when they have been arrested or suffered injury due to another's negligence. We make it a point to set aside time to listen to their whole story and prioritize continued communication throughout their entire legal matter.

This allows the team at Menefee & Brown to get a full understanding of every client’s needs and expectations, helping us create a comprehensive strategy that works on behalf of their best interests. Our experience, insight, and knowledge allow our lawyers to guide clients through the legal process. We pride ourselves on communicating with our clients and making every effort to achieve your goals on your schedule and budget, no matter what your needs might be.
