About the Event
Connie Allison grew up in Nashville taught at St. Pius X and St. Ann before becoming a full-time, homeschooling mom. She majored in elementary education at Vanderbilt, and later earned my law degree (J.D) from Nashville School of Law.
"I wish I could say that I was drawn to law for lofty reasons, but as my children grew, I realized I needed another challenge in my life, and I chose law school over other graduate schools," Allison said. "I am extremely fortunate that I truly love my work so much, because my decision wasn’t really that well thought out!"
"I began my legal career in litigation (courtroom work), with a primary focus in family law. I have always loved the feeling of being able to rescue people in unhappy situations, help parents have more time with their kids, and help prevent my clients from being taken advantage of,' she said. "However, litigation and especially family law can be extremely stressful. I returned to law school two more times, earning one LL.M in Taxation and another LL.M in Business transactions."
She still takes a select few family law cases, but today her practice is mostly focused on trusts and estate planning, tax planning for individuals and businesses, IRS negotiations, contract work and business consulting. Allison was invited to join NCBWL by my long-time friend Cora Newcomb and attended the open house at Debbie Lassiter’s home.
"I enjoyed the friendly, kind, and welcoming women I met there so much. It is difficult for me to make the monthly Wednesday meetings in Nashville traffic, but I have loved every meeting I have attended," she said. "The sense of community in our church and within NCBWL is important to me; community was a big part of what attracted me to the Catholic faith when I was 21."
Allison has three grown children who are now in Nashville, Indianapolis and St Louis. She lives with a snobby elderly cat, and a very large two-year-old rescue dog who attends doggie school frequently and still has to be bribed with treats whenever she has company.
