About John Aaron Vaught, Senior Litigation Attorney

Knoxville divorce attorney John Aaron Vaught began practicing family law because of his desire to engage with clients. Guiding clients through divorce and other family law matters gives him a kind of personal interaction that he finds stimulating and gratifying.

“Helping someone out during a stressful time is rewarding,” he said.

Mr. Vaught considers his defining characteristic to be his relatability. That helps tremendously as he works with clients on their cases as he is able to listen and understand the dilemmas they are facing.

“Trust and patience are key in resolving family law issues,” he said, “but I will work my hardest to make the experience as quick and easy as possible.”


Mr. Vaught is licensed to practice in Tennessee, as well as the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee


Mr. Vaught earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Tennessee where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
