areas-of-practicdeAt the law office of Ken Phillips, we are dedicated to providing our clients with excellent legal representation in the areas of Family Law, Criminal Defense, and Wills and Advance Directives. Since Ken was recently voted one of the top attorneys in Gallatin, TN and Sumner County, you can be sure that our clients receive the most professional and caring legal services in each of the following three legal areas.

Family Law

We handle all legal matters concerning the family. These often include:


You need a divorce attorney who is devoted to defending you, your children, and your property. Divorces can be confusing and complicated, so it’s important to make sure that you have a divorce lawyer who is both competent and experienced.  Ken offers traditional divorce services as well as collaborative divorce.

Prenuptial agreements

We think that planning for your future with a prenuptial agreement is a mature decision. We are committed to creating legal agreements with our clients’ best interest in mind.

Child custody, child support, and adoptions

Not many lawyers work as hard as we do to ensure that children are protected in legal scenarios. The best interests of your children are our first priority when handling adoptions, child custody, and child support arrangements.

Orders of protection

If you feel physically threatened by a current or former family member, you must talk with an attorney about an order of protection. We have years of experience handling these matters, so rest assured that your safety is our first concern.

Criminal Defense

If you or a family member have been arrested or cited by the police to appear in court, it is very important to find a competent criminal attorney today.  The State has many resources at its disposal- police officers, detectives, laboratories and district attorneys- and you need an experienced and aggressive criminal lawyer to represent you at this frightening and complicated time.  I have handled many hundreds of misdemeanors and felonies in all types of criminal matters. These include charges related to:

DUIs and drugs

If you’ve gotten a DUI, it’s important to find a DUI lawyer with experience. I am a DUI attorney with years of experience, and I also help clients with drug charges which have been brought against them.

Thefts, burglaries, robberies and forgeries

If you have been accused of a theft, burglary, robbery or forgery, you know how intimidating the legal process can be. In your situation, it is important to remain calm and find a competent attorney as soon as possible

Assaults, domestic assaults and sex offenses

Being charged with any of these criminal acts can result in serious consequences. Contact me today before it’s too late to get help.

Vandalism and misdemeanors

While you might think that vandalism and misdemeanor charges are not too serious, my experience has shown me that these criminal charges are not to be taken lightly. Our office handles all sorts of misdemeanor charges with our clients’ best interests in mind.

Felonies and murder charges

If you or a loved one has been connected with a felony or murder charge, I don’t have to tell you how scary the legal process can seem. Before you do anything else, contact our office. We have the experience and the know-how to guide every step of the way.

Wills and Advance Directives

If you have made the very wise decision to plan ahead by getting your will and other advance directives prepared, I am here to take care of the entire legal process.
