Ortale Kelley is announcing the opening of a new office in Memphis, Tennessee.
The Memphis office is located at 2670 Union Ave, Suite 1122, just east of downtown Memphis.
Ortale Kelley Law Firm (www.ortalekelley.com) was formed in 1971. Its primary office is located in downtown Nashville, Tennessee and is home to 26 lawyers. The firm represents a diverse range of clients in both transactional and litigation matters, from physician and hospital malpractice defense, government liability, personal injury cases, insurance coverage, and employment law to commercial real estate, banking and finance, and corporate representation.
The motivation behind the opening of Ortale Kelley’s satellite office is to service the firm’s existing business, as the number of Memphis clients and litigation arising out of Shelby County has steadily grown over the past two years, according to Managing Partner Richard Sebastian. “Our entry into the Memphis market allows us to provide local support for our longstanding, key clients doing business in West Tennessee, as well to strategically broaden our reach in this area,” stated Sebastian.
Memphis-based attorney, Charles M. Weirich, Jr., has joined Ortale Kelley as of counsel and will head the Memphis office.
With over twenty-seven years of trial experience, Weirich focuses his practice on personal injury, business, and probate and estate cases. Weirich earned his J.D. degree from The University of Memphis, Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. He holds a B.B.A degree in Accounting from The University of Memphis.
“Weirich’s experience and dedication to the practice of law in Memphis is extensive, and he will be a vital member to our team,” said Sebastian. “We see a great opportunity to expand many of our firm’s practices into the Memphis business community and believe Charles is a great asset to represent our firm and our clients.”
Weirich is married to Amy Weirich, Shelby County District Attorney General, with whom he has four children.
