Dodson Parker Behm & Capparella PC, Names New Managing Partner

The law firm of Dodson Parker Behm & Capparella PC, is pleased to announce that Tyler Chance Yarbro has been named managing partner of the firm.
Of Yarbro’s election to the position, founding member Margaret L. Behm said: “For 30 years, the bedrock principle of our firm has been that lawyers should be community-minded problem-solvers. Tyler typifies that model. She has earned the respect and admiration of our firm, our clients, and the Nashville community, and we are delighted to have her fill this role.”

Behm previously served as managing partner and will continue her full-time practice of law as Yarbro assumes administrative responsibilities.

Yarbro represents businesses and individuals in a wide range of employment matters. In addition to employment and business law, her litigation practice involves disputes relating to personal injury, criminal, and probate matters. She joined the firm in 2011, from the Metropolitan Nashville Public Defender’s Office, where she represented thousands of clients and handled numerous jury trials. Yarbro also teaches trial advocacy at Vanderbilt Law School.

In 2017, she was appointed by the Metro Council to the Greenways and Open Space Commission. Previously, she served on the Community Corrections Advisory Board for nine years. She also serves on the YWCA Advocacy Committee and on the board of directors of Rooftop Nashville.

A three-time Nashville Business Journal “Best of the Bar” honoree, Yarbro has been selected by her peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2018 in the fields of employment law (management and individuals) and litigation—labor and employment. Each year since 2014, the Tennessee Supreme Court has named her an “Attorney for Justice,” signifying that she has devoted at least 50 hours a year to pro bono legal work.

“I am honored by the trust my colleagues have placed in me,” Yarbro said. “Our firm traces its roots to some of the city’s most respected law firms and legal leaders, and as we embark on our 30th year, I am excited to help continue the firm’s heritage of professionalism and commitment to public service. Dodson Parker Behm & Capparella will always aim to provide expert legal counsel and common sense advice.”
