LawPay is pleased to introduce Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones, PLLC as a featured LawPay client. We’re proud to offer a versatile payment solution to fit the unique needs of the legal industry, and we believe this firm demonstrates how LawPay can be used to process any incoming funds securely.

What type of law do you primarily practice?

We focus our practice primarily on Labor & Employment Law for management, and General Liability and Workers’ Compensation defense for businesses and professionals as well as insurers and governmental entities.

Tell us the story of your firm. How and why did you get into labor and commercial law?

Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones, PLLC is a successor to the labor and commercial law practice of the former firm of Mitchell, Clarke, Pate, Anderson & Wimberly, which was founded in 1948 in Atlanta, Georgia, and known for its representation of the Mitchell family and its Gone with the Wind movie interests.

Which Bars are you affiliated with?

We have offices in Knoxville, Cookeville, Nashville, and Morristown, Tennessee, and maintain our affiliation with Wimberly, Lawson, Steckel & Schneider, P.C., in Atlanta, Georgia; Wimberly, Lawson, Daniels & Fisher, LLC in Greenville, South Carolina; and Wimberly, Lawson and Avakian, in Washington D.C.

Our firm’s attorneys maintain memberships in the American Bar Association, the Tennessee Bar Association, and local bar associations in those cities where we have offices.

What makes your firm unique?

At Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones, PLLC, we use a number of preventive and cost-effective methods. An example of our preventive philosophy is the review of our clients’ compliance posture in their employment practice and employee benefit programs. These reviews are designed to maximize employee benefit dollars as well as to avoid costly legal problems. While our lawyers remain successful in representing our clients’ interests in union organizing campaigns, employment law litigation matters, and immigration and nationality issues, our distinction rests on this preventive law philosophy.

Wimberly Lawson also renders more traditional legal services. In addition to the firm’s well-proven approach to preventive maintenance, its sophisticated litigation practice ranges from proceedings before state and federal governmental agencies, to trials at all levels of state and federal courts. The firm’s attorneys have successfully defended against all types of labor, employment, general, and professional liability claims. Our affiliated firms have successfully defended class actions, trade secrets, tax, pension, and benefit lawsuits.

Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones, PLLC, has been recognized for various coveted rating awards including: 2015 US Top Ranked Law Firms by Fortune Magazine; 2015 Best Law Firms by U.S. News & World Report; and 2015 Martindale Hubbell Peer Review Rated Award by Martindale-Hubbell (the leading independent legal-services rating entity).

In what ways has LawPay benefited your practice?

One of the most important aspects of our practice at Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones, PLLC, is the wide array of conferences and seminars we sponsor and present.

Last year, the event drew over 400 attendees, with business owners, managers, and H.R. professional coming in from all over the United States to join us in Knoxville, Tennessee, for a day-and-a-half program covering important legal decisions and societal trends affecting employment.

LawPay has been invaluable because it allows our registrants to pay registration fees directly by credit card at their convenience, using a LawPay link customized with the firm’s information. LawPay has been very popular — over 80% of our registrants now pay by credit card, rather than by check.
