Grimmett Law Firm
Don’t Lose What’s Legally Your’s

Our Team

Passion. Experience. Diligence.


The Grimmett Law Firm began in 2005 when Mr. Grimmett graduated from law school and wanted nothing more than to become a trial lawyer. At the time, he only had enough money to rent a small one room office in downtown Nashville and the only furniture he could afford was a few bankers boxes, a laptop, and a small plastic chair. It was certainly risky, but he somehow knew that it would work.

Mr. Grimmett eventually tried his first case two weeks after passing the bar. In the next year, he would receive dozens of referrals from other attorneys who heard about the new young attorney that was willing to try anything and everything. Eventually, Mr. Grimmett built a reputation as an attorney who knew the law, was willing to go to trial, and who would do anything to help his clients. He did not do any advertising and received his clients strictly from other attorneys.

The Grimmett Law Firm would eventually grow into two offices—one in Downtown Nashville and one in Cool Springs. Mr. Grimmett still has the same old plastic chair which started it all. He keeps it in his office to remind him of his humble beginnings and remind him that EVERY client is important.

David R. Grimmett

David was born and raised in Clarksville, Tennessee. His mother is a retired elementary school teacher of 35 years and his father is a college professor at Austin Peay. With that kind of background, David always knew he would either become a teacher or a lawyer. Luckily, he learned that trying cases before judges and juries is very much like teaching.

David tried his first case two weeks after passing the bar and since that time he has tried hundreds of cases throughout Tennessee. Due to his expertise, David has served as chairman of the Nashville Bar Association’s Juvenile Court Section and chairman of the Tennessee Bar Association Administrative Law Section. He is also a member of the Tennessee Trial Lawyer’s Association. Due to these roles, David teaches other attorneys throughout the state how to try these types of cases on behalf of the bar. David is board certified in child welfare law and he has served as a special magistrate in severe abuse cases when the other judges were conflicted out.

David is married to his college sweetheart Erin and they have one daughter. When David is not in court or at the office, he is at home trying to answer the question which many fathers ask themselves—why is my entire house pink?
