Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Business Law Attorney in Chattanooga.

Helping clients locally in Chattanooga, and estate planning with clients virtually across the State of Tennessee.

How We Serve You

Attorney Ryan Smith is an estate planning lawyer in Chattanooga, an elder law attorney in Chattanooga, a business law attorney in Chattanooga, a personal injury lawyer in Chattanooga, and a family/divorce lawyer in Chattanooga.  Our physical office is located at 50 Frazier Avenue, Suite 300, directly off the Walnut Street walking bridge in Chattanooga's north shore.  In addition to our Chattanooga law practice, we also help clients with estate planning across the State of Tennessee - from Memphis to Chattanooga.  

Estate planning is the process of planning to effectively preserve, distribute, and dispose of an individual's estate after death.  This may include drafting a will, revocable living trust, irrevocable living trust, general durable power of attorney for financial affairs, advanced healthcare directive, and burial instructions.  The process of estate planning always begins with an initial consultation with an attorney, who walks through the planning process, and helps clients by asking questions and sharing experience and insight to make the process seamless and stress-free.

Whether you would prefer to come meet face-to-face in our office with an attorney to plan for the future, or have the initial consultation over the telephone, our practice is designed with our clients needs at heart.  We also offer flat fee pricing, which takes the guesswork out of legal fees.

In addition to estate planning, we also assist clients with estate administration.  Estate administration is the process of ensuring a person's wishes are followed after an individual dies - the administration of the estate either through probate or trust administration.  Estate administration attorneys make sure that the individual's wishes are carried out, and guide the executor, trustee, or administrator through the administration process.

As an elder law attorney in Chattanooga, we assist our clients in a range of areas, including veterans benefits, medicaid planning, conservatorships, and special needs planning.  If you or a loved one are facing the unique challenges that come with aging, including any of the above mentioned topics, we provide honest, compassionate, and individualized services dedicated to solving your problems and providing peace of mind.

If you are looking for a business law attorney in Chattanooga, our office assists clients in a variety of business issues. We help clients in all stages of their business.  Whether it is a new startup trying to decide on which legal entity to choose or which initial setup documents are necessary, or an existing business looking for assistance with contract drafting or review or compliance procedures, we provide holistic, comprehensive guidance and service.


In family law cases, we are responsive and accessible - two highly desirable traits for family lawyers.  When you hire us, the attorney you meet is  the attorney who will be handling your case.  We use our over four years  of experience as a family law advocate and Chattanooga divorce lawyer  to best serve you.  Whether you  have a contested or uncontested divorce, an adoption, or a child support  case, we will be there to advocate for you, answer your questions, and  make you feel at ease as your case progresses.

We  understand that not every client who suffers from a personal injury can  afford an expensive retainer fee and hourly rate.  That's why in  many cases we offer the option of a contingency fee.  With a  contingency fee, in the event that we don't recover anything on your  case, then we will not charge an attorney fee.  As a personal injury lawyer in Chattanooga, Ryan C. Smith uses his legal background and education to advocate for his client's legal interests, and to help make his client whole.
