Thompson Burton, PLLC, has launched an Administrative Law practice with its announcement that Alex Scarbrough has joined the firm as an associate and will lead the firm’s administrative law practice. Alex’s knowledge and experience as a law clerk to the administrative law judges of Tennessee will expand Thompson Burton’s ability to serve its clients by providing quality defense services before healthcare related boards, including the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners and Board of Nursing.
Alex comes to Thompson Burton from her tenure as a law clerk with the Honorable William J. Haynes, Jr., Chief Judge of the Middle District of Tennessee, U.S. District Court.
Walt Burton added, “We’re very excited to welcome Alex to the firm. She is a talented attorney and was highly recruited by numerous law firms. We think she fits our culture perfectly.”
In addition to Alex’s focus on advocating for her clients in administrative law, Alex will be assisting in the firm’s existing Litigation and Employment Law practice groups.
Thompson said, “Alex is a leader. She’s got the right mix of skill and humility, which is hard to find in the legal profession. She’s got a bright future ahead of her.”
Alex received her J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School, where she was a Dean Scholar. She received her undergraduate degree from Union University, where she graduated magna cum laude. While in law school, Alex interned with both May Karl Dean and the Nashville District Attorney’s Office, and served as a research assistant on the “Law and the Brain,” course developed by Vanderbilt Professor Owen Jones, which combined neuroscience and legal issues in an innovative course.
She lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her fiancé, Jason, and their dog, Rayne.
