Attorney Profile

Josh Tillman has been recognized as an estate planning specialist by the Tennessee Board of Certification and Specialization and holds the Accredited Estate Planner and Estate Planning Law Specialist designations with the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils.  Josh focuses his practice to a great extent on estate planning and administration. He is a Partner at Russ Cook & Associates, PC, and he represents clients throughout the middle part of Tennessee from the firm’s offices in Brentwood. Mr. Tillman also handles a variety of business matters for entrepreneurs as well as established companies.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Tillman attended Miami University, majoring in international studies and receiving a Bachelor of Arts in 1998. After working for several years in the private sector, he decided to pursue a legal education and enrolled at what was then known as George Mason University School of Law, and he was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2013. Mr. Tillman then served as an assistant general counsel with the Tennessee Department of Revenue before joining his current firm in February 2015. He has been admitted to practice before all Tennessee state courts since 2013.

In his estate planning practice, Mr. Tillman works with clients toward a goal of protecting and preserving their assets for future generations. In addition to wills, he prepares and reviews complex trust documents as well as financial and health care powers of attorney and advance medical directives. Mr. Tillman also has extensive experience in probate and trust administration, guiding heirs, beneficiaries, trustees, and executors through the process and addressing whatever concerns they might have.

Many of Mr. Tillman’s clients are entrepreneurs who are launching a new business, and at the outset, he advises them on the most appropriate form of legal entity that the venture should operate under. Once it has been formed, he prepares and reviews appropriate contracts and works with them on regulatory compliance and other matters. For these and more seasoned companies, Mr. Tillman has prepared succession plans to take effect when an owner retires, becomes incapacitated or passes away.
