David R. Grimmett

David was born and raised in Clarksville, Tennessee. His mother is a retired elementary school teacher of 35 years and his father is a college professor at Austin Peay. With that kind of background, David always knew he would either become a teacher or a lawyer. Luckily, he learned that trying cases before judges and juries is very much like teaching.

David tried his first case two weeks after passing the bar and since that time he has tried hundreds of cases throughout Tennessee. Due to his expertise, David has served as chairman of the Nashville Bar Associations Juvenile Court Section and chairman of the Tennessee Bar Association Administrative Law Section. He is also a member of the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association. Due to these roles, David teaches other attorneys throughout the state how to try these types of cases on behalf of the bar. David is board certified in child welfare law and he has served as a special magistrate in severe abuse cases when the other judges were conflicted out.

David is married to his college sweetheart Erin and they have one daughter. When David is not in court or at the office, he is at home trying to answer the question which many fathers ask themselves, “why is my entire house pink?”
