Attorney Stevie Phillips, a Chattanooga native, has joined the law firm of Davis & Hoss.
She received her J.D. from UT Law in 2008 where she served as editor-in-chief of the Tennessee Journal of Law and Policy. Ms. Phillips received her B.A. in history and Spanish from Loyola University New Orleans in 2005.
After law school, Ms. Phillips accepted a clerkship with Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Janice M. Holder. Afterwards, she clerked for Judge Bernice B. Donald in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee.
In her short time with Davis & Hoss, she has brought her experiences to bear on the firm’s representation of criminal clients — from those facing minor sentences to those facing the death penalty. She is also actively engaged in the firm’s civil practice.
Phillips contributes to the work of a number of public and private organizations that are dedicated to advancing social justice locally as well as abroad, including the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission and the American Bar Association’s Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities.
Prior to joining Davis & Hoss, Ms. Phillips traveled through Central America. As a result, she has a working proficiency in Spanish — a skill that she looks forward to using in her representation of Hispanic clients.
Stevie Phillips is licensed to practice in Tennessee and California and has been admitted in federal district and appellate court.
