Gary Adkins, Attorney
After completing his military obligation, Gary returned to UT and obtained his degree in Communications. For the following 10 years, he worked in radio and advertising in the Knoxville area. In addition to working for WOKI-FM and other area radio stations, he also booked and promoted large arena concerts for bands such as Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Blue Oyster Cult and others.
In 1982 Gary decided he was probably having too much fun and went back to school to pursue a law degree. He graduated with Honors from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1985. He has been practicing law in East Tennessee ever since. His practice has been primarily limited to representing people against big insurance and big business. All his life he has enjoyed sticking it to the man.
Gary has two sons, Greg (and wife Jessica) and Adam. He also has two wonderful grandchildren, Connor and Claire.
