As a long-time resident of Tennessee, I love this Tri-Star state. I grew up in the small town of Greeneville, starting my education at the early age of three from my grandmother, a retired school teacher. I attended Doak Elementary School in Tusculum from kindergarten through eighth grade and graduated Valedictorian from Chuckey-Doak High School. My early years were filled with sports, family time, and fun on the farm. After high school, I enrolled at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2006 with a degree in Mass Communications. I went on to earn my doctorate of jurisprudence from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where I earned the award for Outstanding Achievement in Legal Writing, was a member of the Negotiation Team, served as the student American Bar Association Representative for the law school, was the Founder and President of the Sports and Entertainment Law Society, and held other leadership roles with various organizations in the law school. Upon graduation in 2009, I returned to Johnson City, married my husband, and began practicing law.
Life in the Sandos house is busy and always entertaining. We have three children, a daughter and twin boys, one cat and one fish. With three young kids, our days are consumed with Kindergarten homework and potty training twins. Our family is filled with avid sports fans and we spend most evenings either at a field, in a gymnasium, at the park, or in a studio. If anyone gets how valuable time is, it is me! Aside from my children keeping me busy, I am employed as the lead planned giving officer at a university, serve the City of Johnson City in multiple volunteer capacities, and try to remain active with my church. With so much life happening every day, the web-based format of Sandos Law allows me to continue to do what I love and meet the needs of so many in Tennessee.
Through my experience over the years, I have come to see a great need in our community, region, state, and nation for a more convenient way to establish an estate plan. Failure to establish an estate plan is not due to a lack of resources or available attorneys, it is due to scheduling issues, misconceptions, discomfort with the topic, and simple procrastination. The goal of Sandos Law is to break down the barriers and create a convenient way for Tennessee residents from Memphis to Mountain City to have access to a licensed, experienced attorney at their convenience, whether that be on a Sunday morning after church or a Thursday night in their pajamas. Having practiced in small to mid-sized firms, I know first-hand how expensive maintaining a traditional brick and mortar firm can be, and how those expenses have to be passed along to the clients. The unique quality of Sandos Law being entirely online allows for exceptional service at a fraction of the cost, with the convenience my clients need.
