Kate Yeager Delk

  • Attorney at Law
Franklin, TN





I am attorney Kate Yeager Delk, and I have been working in Tennessee's justice system for more than 11 years. I represent individuals defending their rights and protecting their futures. Prior to opening my own practice, I prosecuted cases in the 21st Judicial District (Hickman, Lewis, Perry, and Williamson counties) for 10 years. I tried numerous cases over those 10 years and know what it takes to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt. Also, as a former prosecutor, I negotiated thousands of cases, and I know how the other side thinks. This unique perspective means I can help protect my clients - both today and in the future. My experience means I know how hard it is for defendants to protect themselves and their rights and how important an experienced attorney is. In my year of clerking for the Court of Criminal Appeals, I researched numerous criminal law issues and drafted opinions on behalf of Judge Tommy Woodall. I also attended oral arguments and observed discussion amongst the Judges.
