Summary

Maximizing your compensation for injuries caused by someone else's wrongdoing is my top priority. Making you "whole" is not enough.

Brandon D. Fersten files lawsuits on behalf of individuals and small businesses that suffer serious physical or economic injuries due to someone else's negligence, recklessness or intentional conduct. Brandon successfully negotiates settlements on behalf of clients involving car accidents, slip and falls, negligent shootings, contract disputes, invasions of privacy, anti-wiretapping, consumer protection, prisoner rights, construction disputes and real estate disputes. Brandon will negotiate with insurance companies and opposing counsel on your behalf to ensure that you receive the compensation and relief that you deserve.

Brandon regularly appears in juvenile court, general sessions court, criminal court, circuit court and the court of appeals for juvenile defense, criminal defense, DUI defense and appeals. Brandon has successfully drafted and argued an appeal in Criminal Court that resulted in a reversal of the trial court's ruling, and he has received numerous dismissals of criminal and delinquency charges in General Sessions and Juvenile Court.

Brandon graduated Magna Cum Laude with a concentration in Advocacy & Dispute Resolution from the University of Tennessee College of Law. During law school, Brandon was awarded the prestigious Jerry. P. Black, Jr. Student Clinic Attorney Award and CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Advanced Criminal Law, Advocacy Clinic and Negotiation. Prior to law school, Brandon received his undergraduate degree in Political Science with a minor in Economics from the University of South Florida.

When Brandon is not practicing law, he enjoys playing softball and golf, watching sports and hiking in the Great Smokies with his fiance, Taylor. If you see Brandon somewhere on the weekend, you will most likely see him accompanied by his first daughter Lilly, an English Golden Retriever puppy.
