We are excited about the launch of Carter Shelton. Collectively, we bring over 25 years of tax experience from two of Nashville’s most prominent law firms – Bradley Arant Boult Cummings and Waller Lansden Dortch and Davis. Suffice it to say that we would not be in a position to provide the tax advice that we do today without the mentoring and training that we received from some of the finest tax practitioners in Tennessee and the Southeast. They are all still practicing, so this is not a eulogy, but we owe them all a special thank you. The list includes Joe Gibbs, Charlie Trost, Mike Yopp, Bruce Ely, Leigh Griffith, Pat Moskal, Chris Grissom, Mike Stewart, Richard Johnson and numerous other tax attorneys who worked alongside us for most of our careers.
While Carter Shelton is not a big law firm, we bring a big firm approach to solving our client’s problems, and for that experience, we will be forever grateful to our mentors. That said, my guess is that each one of these fine mentors would be quick to say, that they taught us everything that we know but not everything they know.
