Zach Jones

Zach devotes his practice to meeting the needs of his clients, most of which are in the real estate development, design, and construction industry--as well as companies that do business with municipalities, states, and the federal government. He is admitted to practice law throughout Tennessee, Kentucky, and before the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Court of Federal Claims.  In addition, Zach spends time advising clients and litigating cases which further the public good, including veteran organizations, religious institutions, and organizations dedicated to preserving life at all ages.

Zach has litigated cases with multi-million dollar consequences to successful conclusion--including favorable results in mediation, arbitration, and before governmental agencies.  In addition to claims for monetary damages, Zach has helped many clients navigate the complexities of administrative red tape, including bid disputes, status protests, and licensure issues.  Prior to becoming a lawyer, Zach was a construction professional and is a combat infantry veteran who served on active duty with the 101st Airborne Division.
