I knew I wanted to be a lawyer when I realized that progress is slow and victory is earned in inches. As a lawyer, you can only make a positive difference in the lives of others by listening to everyone’s stories. The work we do is important because, inch-by-inch and case-by-case, we chip away at the myths imparted to us by the powerful to reveal the truth.
Mr. McGraw concentrates his practice on the firm’s complex litigation cases.

Mr. McGraw is a 2013 graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law, where he won the College’s moot court competition his third year, the final round of which was argued in front of a panel of eight federal appeals court judges and Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.
