Committed to Serving Your Diverse Legal Needs

At Mathis, Bates & Klinghard PLLC (MBK Legal), our clients are the most important aspect of our work. We make it a priority to return client communications within 24 hours, and we make ourselves available during evening and Saturday hours to accommodate our clients' work schedules.

Our Clarksville attorneys represent civilians in Tennessee and Kentucky, and we represent military service members throughout the world. The professional legal representation from our Clarksville law firm handles a wide range of legal issues — including divorce and family law, criminal defense, bankruptcy, immigration and military law, to name a few — we take the same dedicated approach to every case we handle.

Client Commitment

When we started discussing opening our own firm, one issue continued to resonate more than any other: client service. As a small team of dedicated, experienced attorneys, we are committed to providing our clients best-in-class service. From your initial consultation to the close of your legal matter, we will remain available to help you through every step of the process. That is our commitment to you. Mathis, Bates & Klinghard PLLC

A Team of Like-Minded, Forward-Thinking Attorneys 

Our Clarksville law firm provides professional legal representation to the surrounding communities. At MBK Legal, we are a group of like-minded attorneys who decided to join together to give our clients a more progressive approach to representation. This progressive approach can be seen in our up-to-date knowledge of modern technology, which is a tremendous benefit for streamlining our communications systems to provide the best possible customer service and helping our clients understand how communications technologies can impact the outcomes of their cases. For example, many criminal defense matters and family law matters such as custody can be drastically altered by careless use of texting and social media.

Our attorneys started MBK Legal to give our clients the very best. Our Clarksville law firm meets with our clients personally and gives each case the attention it deserves.
