Trevor F. Atchley
Trevor is a fourth generation lawyer. He began practicing law in 2008, when he joined his father and Bill Dietzen, his father’s long time law partner, at the firm Dietzen & Atchley, where he spent his formative years as a young attorney and benefitted greatly from the mentorship his father and Mr. Dietzen provided. Unfortunately, Mr. Dietzen passed away in March 2015. Trevor joined McKoon, Williams, Atchley & Stulce, PLLC, in December 2015.
Trevor engages in a general practice of law, which includes general civil litigation, estate planning, probate administration, conservatorships and guardianships. He has developed extensive trial experience in cases involving will contests, as well as the alleged misappropriation of assets or undue influence by a fiduciary. From his experience litigating will contests and cases of alleged malfeasance by a fiduciary, Trevor is able to advise and counsel clients on the responsibilities, duties and requirements of fiduciaries serving in Tennessee.
Trevor received his B.S. from Barton College, where he graduated with cum laude honors in 2002. He received his J.D. from the Appalachian School of Law, where he graduated with cum laude honors in 2008.
