Firm Details

Frantz, McConnell & Seymour is an East Tennessee law firm that has proudly served the region’s business and personal clients for more than a century, dating back to 1902.  Over the last 100-plus years, we have actively represented individuals and corporations that have been an integral part of the stable growth and vitality of Knoxville, Knox County and the surrounding areas of East Tennessee. 

While our name has remained the same, as has our commitment to our clients, we are a forward-thinking firm, always growing and changing in order to meet the needs of those we serve.  Our firm maintains a tradition of excellence, taking pride in our reputation as one of the premier law firms in Tennessee. Our attorneys, many of whom retain Best Lawyers® and Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent status, regularly appear in state and federal courts and administrative agencies.  With wide-ranging experience and a powerful desire to meet our clients’ needs and goals, we provide them with seamless representation in extensive practice areas

Our attorneys are also extremely involved in the communities in which they live.  They are active in civic and school organizations and are leaders in churches and charitable organizations. We are also enormously proud of the veterans on our staff who have served our country during World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq.

We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to represent our clients and are dedicated to serving their legal needs by exceeding their expectations with excellence, integrity, innovation, respect and communication.
