William T. Ramsey


Bill Ramsey joined Neal & Harwell in 1981. The primary focus of his practice is complex civil and criminal litigation. He also has a significant entertainment law practice representing artists and entertainers. He is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, all federal and state courts in Tennessee, and many other federal circuit courts of appeals.

Bill has always been interested in technical issues and applies that experience to the practice of law. He and his friend, Philip Hampton, started the “Bill and Phil Show.” They travel to various organizations and trade shows to share the latest tech gadgets for work and entertainment. They also write a monthly article for the Nashville Bar Journal and many other legal publications.

Bill owns and operates his family’s farm in Viola, Tennessee, and he applies the wisdom he learned from his father and other farmers to all aspects of his life, including the practice of law.
