Former Chancellor Daryl Fansler will join the Knoxville law firm Bernstein Stair & McAdams effective Nov. 1, the firm announced today.
Fansler served as chancellor of Knox County Chancery Court, Part II, for the past 16 years, before being defeated in the August election by Republican Clarence E. “Eddie” Pridemore.
Before his election to the bench, Fansler practiced law in Knoxville for 15 years as a trial lawyer and civil mediator.
“His years of experience as a trial lawyer and civil mediator, coupled with 16 years as a chancellor, make him uniquely qualified both to serve as a mediator and arbitrator and to litigate complex cases,” said Caesar Stair III, a partner with the firm.
Fansler serves as vice chairman of the advisory board of the Knoxville area command of the Salvation Army, chairman of the Museum of Appalachia’s board of directors and as a director of the Davis Center for Child Development.
Bernstein Stair & McAdams is a 12-lawyer, general practice firm that was founded in 1959.
