How Can We Help?

Matt McFarland

“It's been my experience that no one ever comes to a lawyer saying 'My life is great, how can you make it better?', so you're usually seeing clients at one of the lowest points in their life. At that, helping them becomes my moral obligation.”

Matt is a Major in the Tennessee Army National Guard and serves as Judge Advocate General. He is currently deployed overseas. We’re eager for his safe return to Tennessee and the Hughes & Coleman family.

Matt graduated from Tennessee Tech cum laude with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering and a minor in math.  After working as an engineer with a global HVAC company, Matt realized engineering wasn’t his passion. He then went on to graduate magna cum laude from the University of Tennessee College of Law, spending his 3rd year practicing in court as a sworn Attorney General through the school’s clinical program.

Matt has spent his entire legal career representing injured people. Whether they were hurt on the job, in a car wreck, or injured through the negligence of another, Matt has taken their case to trial if necessary.

In addition to his law license, Matt earned the rank of Major in the Tennessee Army National Guard and serves as Judge Advocate General.   He serves as the Senior Defense Counsel for the entire state of Tennessee defending Soldiers accused of misconduct or misappropriating property.

In his spare time, Matt enjoys walking with his wife and two daughters, if he can get his daughters to stop playing “hoppy-scotch” long enough to walk a straight line.  Matt is a long-time Vols and Titans fan, and master of 3 dogs: Odessa, Independence, and Radar. His spirit animal is Ron Swanson.
