Robert E. Lee Davies Named Senior Judge for Tennessee Supreme Court

Robert E. Lee Davies, who graduated from Washington and Lee University in 1979, has been named senior judge for the Tennessee Supreme Court. In this position, he will hear cases in which other judges cannot serve because of a conflict, or in courts where there is a vacancy.

Robert, a former judge and attorney, practices family law, personal injury, and business litigation in Williamson County. He served from 2000-2008 as a circuit court judge in the 21st Judicial District, handling both civil and criminal cases. He also has served as special judge for the Tennessee Court of Appeals.

“The people of Williamson County have received the benefit of Judge Davies’ experience and expertise and now these resources will be available all across Tennessee,” Chief Justice Sharon Lee said in press release from the Administrative Office of the Courts. As well as his legal practice, Robert teaches family law at Nashville School of Law and is a Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31-listed mediator.
