Our Story

Attorney Burton  landed in Nashville in the 80's and spent his time studying biochemistry at David Lipscomb University and attending local punk shows in his spare time.  After leaving for a short time to attend law school in Georgia, Attorney Burton returned to Nashville to focus more on his true passion of patent work and intellectual property law.
