Senior Litigation Attorney

Knoxville divorce attorney Emily B. VowellDivorce and custody litigation is often the most stressful time in a person’s life. Knoxville divorce attorney Emily B. Vowell understands how frightening this transition can be and is committed to doing whatever she can to help her clients through each step of the process.
