Who I Am
Reared in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Vakessha left her mid-sized town to attend college at Vanderbilt University. After graduating in 2003 and taking time to develop her skills in customer service and account management, Vakessha was accepted into Nashville School of Law, where she received her Doctorate of Jurisprudence in 2010. Since then, she has been in private practice with a focus on criminal defense. "To me, criminal defense is about leveling the judicial playing field by empowering the defendant citizen. I strive to get the best possible outcome for my client, and I'm not afraid to fight!"
