Farrell A. Levy and Carolyn Levy Gilliam served as dream captains for a Dream Connection child, Lilly. She wanted to see the singing group, Pentatonix, in Atlanta. Not only did she get to see the group perform, but she got to meet them and spent about 15 minutes talking with them. To add icing to the cake, she arrived at the concert in a limo where she was taken through a balloon entrance constructed especially for her. She and her family have spent the last few days in Atlanta seeing sights and having fun. Thanks to all that helped make this dream come true and hats off to Pentatonix.

The recent tragic crash of a helicopter in Pigeon Forge draws attention to dangers of piloting a helicopter. We are proud of Chuck Taylor of our firm who was a helicopter pilot in the Tennessee National Guard for many years. Being a helicopter pilot took time away from his family and law practice, but Mr. Taylor performed a valuable service to our state and country. Chuck was not only a helicopter pilot in the National Guard, but a certified instructor for helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. He did all this while trying numerous complex jury trials, primarily in U.S. District Court.
