About Weir & Kestner
When you’re hurting after an accident, you want to be sure the attorney you choose not only has an in-depth knowledge of the law, but also insight into how insurance companies operate.
Based in Smyrna, Tennessee, lawyers Joe Weir and Tony Kestner provide the legal expertise you need right here in Middle Tennessee.
Tennessee native Joe Weir received his undergraduate degree from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and his J.D. with honors from Drake University Law School in 2005. He spent the first few years of his career defending insurance companies against injured or wronged people. He saw firsthand how easy it was for the insurance companies to unfairly treat individuals who were only seeking justice. Today, Joe uses that experience to put himself in the shoes of his clients and apply effective strategies for maximizing results.
Joe’s philosophy is that every case (regardless of size) is important, because our Tennessee law office represents people, not corporations. Joe and his wife make their home in Rutherford County, right in the heart of Middle Tennessee.
A graduate of Tennessee’s own Vanderbilt University in 1997 and Arizona State College of Law in 2000, Tony spent over ten years working for insurance companies. Then, car accidents involving members of his own family gave him an up-close look at how insurance companies will try to take advantage of injured people. He decided to put his knowledge and experience to work for others in Tennessee, using the same professionalism, expertise, and tenacity that helped his own family members.
Tony has personally handled cases from beginning through jury verdict, including a multi-million dollar wrongful death action. Tony takes great pride in protecting the rights of individuals just like you, and he will approach your case as if he’s representing his own family and friends.
