Devon Landman Named Speaker for Lawyers’ Association for Women (LAW) Annual New Bar Admittee Event
LAW is a proud association of over 400 legal professionals (men and women) whose purpose is to address issues of concern to women within the legal profession and those legal issues affecting women. For over 40 years, LAW has hosted a breakfast to celebrate recent admittees to the Tennessee Bar. This popular annual tradition typically draws a crowd of 300 lawyers, federal and state judges, government officials, bar association dignitaries, new admittees and guests from across the State of Tennessee.
This year Devon was asked to be a guest speaker to welcome new bar admittees to the practice of law, to provide insight on her involvement on LAW’s Mentoring Committee and how she achieved a board/committee position in her first year as a LAW member, and the impact LAW has made on Nashville’s legal community.
IBM's So-Called "Uncapped Commissions"
For years, IBM has promised its software sales representatives that they can make as much money as they want to at IBM – even a million dollars in a year! – because IBM’s sales commissions are “uncapped.”
In reality, after they’ve closed a blockbuster deal for IBM, sales reps find out that their commissions really aren’t uncapped. IBM routinely caps and retains hundreds of thousands of dollars in earned commissions from its sales representatives. We are proud to represent the workers of IBM.

Whitfield Bryson LLP
Whitfield Bryson LLP is a civil litigation firm representing plaintiffs who, in a nutshell, have been injured or harmed due to the negligence of a person or company. Within that category, the types of cases we handle are wide ranging and include personal injury matters such as vehicle accidents and medical malpractice, class action suits for large numbers of people harmed by defective products and environmental disasters, and families whose homes were built using defective construction products.
Here are a few things we are looking into now:
Class action suits are often national and highly complex. We go toe to toe with corporate giants to protect consumers' rights.
As consumers, we assume the products we purchase are safe and as advertised. Unfortunately, many times that isn't the case.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is in place to protect workers from employers failing to pay for overtime work and other wage and hour violations.
Bad Faith Insurance
Insurance is supposed to provide a safety net in times of needs. When an insurance company fails to fulfill their promises, you may have legal recourses.
Accidents are a common, everyday occurrence most of the time. But some accidents can have devastating consequences requiring help from an experienced lawyer.
At the risk of sounding boastful, we’re compelled to say that we’re extremely proud of our legal team. Each and every attorney was carefully chosen for a particular skill, unique knowledge or experience in a specific practice area. Together, they make Whitfield Bryson LLP a well rounded, reliable and respected civil litigation firm. In fact, we have been recognized for ethical and effective practice by organizations such as Martindale-Hubbell, Super Lawyers, and Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite.
