Attorney, Founding Partner

Russell Belk

I was born and raised in Sweetwater, Tennessee. I have a beautiful wife who has a superstar son. They are my world.

I come from a family of hard workers. When I was growing up, both of my parents ran successful small businesses. My maternal grandparents also owned a small business in Sweetwater. My father’s mother raised 6 kids while his dad worked for the railroad. I was able to learn first-hand the value of a hard day’s work.  My family taught me important values that I use every day of my life. I am who I am today because of them.

After high school, I attended Cleveland State Community College where I played basketball in 2001 and graduated with an Associate’s Degree in 2002. I completed my bachelor’s degree at the University of Tennessee Knoxville in 2004. I graduated with honors from the Nashville School of Law in 2009 earning induction in the Honorable Society of Cooper’s Inn.

Since 2009, I have tried and assisted at trial in several injury cases in Tennessee.  I am admitted to practice in all of the federal courts in Tennessee. I have been a member of the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association since 2008. In 2012, I was appointed as a Presidential Nominee to the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Board of Governors.  I have been a member of the Nashville Bar Association since 2007. Beginning in 2012, I served on the board of the Nashville Bar Association Young Lawyer’s Division. 

I was fortunate to be recognized as “Best of the Bar” for 2014 in the Nashville Business Journal.
