Sydney joins GriffithLaw as our Marketing Director and Case Manager keeping clients apprised of their cases and making sure they receive superior service!
Originally from Bristol, Tennessee, Sydney made the move to Nashville to pursue a degree in Music Business, graduating in 2013. While at Belmont, she created Raines Entertainment to cultivate branding and marketing strategies for local artists and classmates.
Upon graduation, Sydney employed her love of people and the industry working as Director of Client Services for Nashville's longest running CD duplicators We Make Tapes & Discs where she facilitated industry sponsorship opportunities and provided personalized service to a wide range of clients.
Sydney has always had a passion for people and fairness, but her interest in law was sparked after requiring back surgery at age 23 due to what at the time of the accident seemed like a minor fender bender. Witnessing first hand the havoc and expense that can result from a seemingly small accident, she recognized the importance of having an honest dependable lawyer you can trust.
Sydney enjoys volunteering as a mentor with Preston Taylor Ministries Breakfast and Bible each week. In her spare time she enjoys trying to improve her golf game, singing and playing piano, and spending time with family.
Sydney is currently a student at Nashville School of Law with an anticipated graduation of 2021.

When I was 23 I was in a wreck and ended up having back surgery. I didn't have the best lawyer, and now see how badly I was taken advantage of. That experience ignited my passion to further my knowledge and understanding of the law, so that I may be a champion for others in vulnerable times.
