Cheyanne Kinghorn has established a reputation as a highly knowledgeable, skilled, and conscientious litigator. By encouraging communication and staying accessible, she remains dedicated to client satisfaction. She measures her success not only by the number of cases she wins, but by her high rate of referrals and return clients.
Cheyanne’s approach is very client-centered. She includes her clients in every step of the representation, from educating them on the law and the legal process, to collaborating on strategy.
She is also highly sensitive to clients' needs, recognizing the financial and emotional stress that often accompanies litigation. With this in mind, she strives to reach cost-effective resolutions.
Cheyanne recognizes that not all problems are created equal, and even clients facing the same problem often have differing values and goals. For this reason, Cheyanne strives to learn what is most important to each client and to understand his or her ultimate end goal. She also tries to explore and discuss alternative resolutions with her clients when appropriate.
Before opening her own law practice, Cheyanne worked for a business and civil litigation law firm located in Nashville, Tennessee. While there, she represented businesses and individuals in connection with business formations, commercial lending disputes, employment matters, commercial real estate disputes, fraud claims, consumer protection actions, contract drafting, and a variety of other civil matters.

Cheyanne has a high standard for thoroughness and a strong attention to detail. While some lawyers stretch themselves thin with huge caseloads, Cheyanne does things differently. She believes that even the smallest matter deserves her full time and attention. As a result, she maintains a reduced caseload at all times. This ensures that she can devote more time to your case than your opponent's attorney can devote to his.
