Not my best side. I think. (I took this pic a couple of years ago....it still looks like me, though I have a bit more gray in my hair now.)

James R. Hickman, Jr.

Attorney at Law

I grew up in East Tennessee and have lived here my whole life, but for a couple of years in college. My family lives in this community and my kids go to school here. Sevier County is home.

I did my undergraduate work at the University of Tennessee. GO VOLS!  and then attended the University ofMemphis, Cecil C. Humphries School of Law.

I took and passed the Tennessee Bar Exam in June of 1999 and began my one-man practice in Sevier County on November 15th, of that year. Since then I have been a solo attorney, a partner in a large law firm, and am now back to being a solo lawyer again. The one thing I have not been as a lawyer is "someone else's employee," I work for my clients, not for someone else.

i am licensed to practice in any State or Federal Court in the State of Tennessee.

From the very beginning of my tenure as an attorney, I have practiced "open-door" law.  In other words, whatever walks in the door.  I pride myself on being able to serve a variety of legal needs, from adoptions to divorce, and from criminal defense to child support.
