My name is Matt Hausman and I am an attorney with Martin, Heller, Potempa & Sheppard, PLLC. I was born and raised in the Nashville/Brentwood area initially going to St. Edwards school and then graduating from Father Ryan High School. After high school, I attended Auburn University where I graduated in 2012. To this day, I am still an avid Auburn sports fan and will talk about ad nauseum if you let me. I then attended law school at the University of Memphis where I was selected to be a part of the Law Review which publishes an annual legal journal. During this time, I formed a passion for the areas of estate planning and probate law.
After law school, I worked as a litigation attorney for two years before joining Martin, Heller, Potempa & Sheppard, PLLC where my practice focuses on estate planning and probate law. My focus in estate planning is helping clients protect their assets after they die and also help them have peace of mind that their hard earned property is distributed. Depending on the level and complexity of an individual's estate plan, ideally there will be no need to have to go through the legal process of probate. However, sometimes it is unavoidable and an individual is required to file paperwork with the court to open probate and receive legal authority to administer an estate. This is also a focus of my practice wherein I file a petition with the relevant court to open probate and allow an estate to be administered according to the deceased's wishes and the laws of Tennessee.
