How Can We Help?

R. Joshua McKee

“I have been blessed to be able to represent individuals that were injured, or forgotten, the voiceless, and the defenseless, and protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression. I am proud to stand up and speak for those that need a hand in our system.”
During his 22 year legal career, Josh has fought for the rights of individuals that deserve more than the system wanted to give them. These experiences have given him the passion to continue his advocacy for the injured.

Having been born and raised in Athens, Tennessee, Josh’s small-town conservative values have been motivation in achieving his goals of being an attorney and being a zealous advocate for individual’s rights.

Josh attended McMinn County High School where he played football and baseball and graduated in 1990.  In 1995, he earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Middle Tennessee State University. While attending college, he served as President of the MTSU chapter of Sigma Chi and is still an active member of the organization’s alumni association. After graduation, Josh attended Nashville School of Law while working full-time for the State of Tennessee as Ginseng Coordinator, at various Law Firms around Nashville, and also at Averitt Express. Josh earned his Juris Doctor in 2000.  He has also attended the prestigious Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning conducted by the University of Miami (FL).  Most recently, he attended Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyer’s College in Dubois, Wyoming.

He managed his own firm for a number of years in Athens, Knoxville, and Nashville, Tennessee focusing on Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, Civil Practice, Estate Planning, and other general practice areas.  He brings a vast and diversified legal background to our firm and can handle a wide range of legal issues.

Josh enjoys playing golf, hiking and being outdoors. He is married to Mandy McKee and has a son, Hayden, and step-son Caleb.  He is the son of former State House of Representatives Member Robert S. McKee and Marion ‘Honey Bee’ McKee.
