Sydney Raines


Sydney Raines is a personal injury attorney specializing in cases involving motor vehicle accidents.  She was born and raised in the East Tennessee mountain town of Bristol--home to NASCAR's "fastest half-mile" and the self-proclaimed "Birthplace of Country Music."  Her pursuit of a career in entertainment brought her to Nashville, where she earned her bachelors degree in Music Business from the renowned Belmont School of Music. 

Just before graduating from Belmont, Sydney was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident when she was just 23 years old.  Due to the carelessness of the at-fault driver, Sydney sustained serious spinal injuries requiring her to undergo a complicated surgical procedure.  Unfortunately, the attorney she hired to represent her interests in the personal injury claim that followed was not as skilled or experienced in handling such matters as they led her to believe.  Although Sydney had to learn that lesson the hard way, she resolved to dedicate herself to ensuring that other personal injury victims wouldn't have to.

Invigorated and impassioned, over the next five years, Sydney attended law school at night and worked her full-time job during the day.  Her tenacity and dedication paid off, as she graduated from Nashville School of Law and earned her juris doctor.

Today, Sydney takes getting clients the justice they deserve personally, because it was personal to her when she was in their shoes.  

Sydney spends her free time on the golf course with her fiance, listening to live music, and chasing her Australian Shepard, Lulu.
