Law Offices of Francis King
Francis King received his B.A. in Government and International Relations (cum laude) from Clark University in 1978, and earned his J.D. (magna cum laude) in 1981 from New England School of Law, where he was a Law Review Editor.
Mr. King has been practicing law since 1981. Since moving his practice to Nashville, in 2009, most of his professional time has been devoted to representing individuals in family law and criminal defense matters throughout Middle Tennessee. His success in those practice areas has been informed and enhanced by many years of prior, broad-based experience in the rough and tumble world of New York City business litigation. Mr. King has handled many complex, commercial litigation matters, involving such diverse areas as federal securities fraud, civil RICO, fraud, breach of contract, partnership and corporate dissolutions, consumer class actions, professional liability defense, bankruptcy and real estate. He has represented banks, insurance companies and numerous other companies and entrepreneurs in a wide variety of industries. All of that experience informs and strengthens his skills as a lawyer who has the ability to “think outside the box” and advocate for individual clients who are facing very difficult personal legal challenges. Every client is important. Every client is accorded dignity and respect. Every client’s calls, emails and text messages are returned promptly, and personally by Mr. King.
