David Marshburn, former Law Clerk:

I worked as a law clerk at Miles Mason Family Law Group for two years during law school, which provided me with an incredibly valuable opportunity to turn the knowledge I gained in the classroom into wisdom through the practice of law. During my time as a law clerk, I learned the fundamental building blocks necessary for becoming a skillful litigator, all while building lasting, professional relationships with colleagues both in the firm and beyond in the greater Memphis legal community.

Tucker Osborne, former Law Clerk:

I want to thank for you allowing me the privilege to have clerked for your firm the past year. I am incredibly grateful to have had such an opportunity. On top of any legal knowledge or experience I have gained, I enjoyed learning from you as a leader. Observing you handle relationships with clients, employees, and family was powerful. I admire how you managed each genuinely but also with intent and purpose. I am glad to have worked in an environment that valued personal and team growth.

Kelly Wojciechowski, former Associate Attorney:

I worked for Miles Mason as a young associate.  What I appreciate most about my time at Miles Mason Family Law Group is Miles’ knack for teaching the practice of law.  Unlike many firms, he actually teaches young associates how to put what is taught in law school into every day practice. Whether it is deciding which motion to file or what advice to give to clients, Miles is willing to answer any questions and explain the reasoning behind his advice.  What I learned at MMFLG gave me a firm foundation in which to be confident in Court and with clients.

Lara Lynn Massey, fomer Senior Paralegal:

I worked for the firm over 10 years, and I would have continued to work for them if I had not moved to another state. It was easy to become loyal to a firm that believes in building a team environment and recognizing that employees are a valuable resource. A large part of the firm’s success has been because of its well-chosen staff. If you work for this firm, expect to be challenged to meet or exceed your potential, and to never stop learning. Also expect to have a group of loyal and supportive people around you, with a great sense of humor. That was the rewarding experience of my working for Miles Mason Family Law Group.
