Tressler & Associates, PLLC is pleased to announce the promotion of Turner Smith Evans to associate attorney.
On November 16th, Tressler & Associates, PLLC celebrated Turner Smith Evans as a new member of the Tennessee Bar Association. He took the oath in a swearing-in ceremony among family and friends at the Rutherford County Judicial Center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Judge Darrell Scarlett presided over the ceremony and administered the oath.
Evans took the bar exam in July 2022. In total, 458 test takers were successful on that exam. The exam had a 62.36% pass rate of 736 individuals — 622 first time test takers and 114 repeaters.
Todd Tressler had no doubt Evans would succeed.
“We are so proud of Turner on this milestone accomplishment,” said Todd A. Tressler, II founder and CEO of Tressler & Associates, PLLC. “Turner is and has been an integral member of our team. He is a dedicated steward in our community and a giver at every level of his life. Now with a law license to back his efforts he will continue to make a positive impact throughout the community.”
Evans has worked as a full-time legal assistant at Tressler & Associates since May 2019. In this role, he has cleared title for real estate cases, and handled a high-volume caseload, including probate and suits to quiet title. He plans to continue his work in the firm’s estate planning and probate services.
Evans is excited to set new goals and shift his focus from studying to helping those in need.
“Getting my law degree is a culmination of my entire life’s work so far,” said Evans. “Now that I am an attorney, my focus can now be on helping others work through life’s challenges and achieve their goals. I am so grateful to the people who have supported me along the way, especially my family and Tressler team. I am honored to serve in my community as an agent for others.”
Evans is from Lebanon, Tennessee. He attended and graduated from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville with a BA degree in political science; he then graduated summa cum laude from the Nashville School of Law with a JD degree in 2022.
