Meet the Staff

Here’s our  Non-Lawyer Team

Tanya Rapavi.

Tanya is originally from New York.  During the summer she sometimes longs to be back, but when winter comes, with snow knee deep in New York, she loves East Tennessee.  She’ll be the first person you’ll meet when you arrive at our offices.  Her smile will make you feel welcome.  She also keeps the “candy bowl” in the lobby filled to the brim.

Tanya is key in our bankruptcy practice.  She help with questions during the initial process and as the bankruptcy proceeds to conclusion.  Tanya is raising two young children with her husband John.  So at the end of the day, she’s ready for the more important role of “mom.”

Donna Blaydes

Donna keeps Dan and Barry on track and insures they are where they’re supposed to be.  Her depth of experience shows as she gives support to them.

Donna assists in drafting pleadings and other documents in an effort to expedite delivery of our service to clients.

Faith Scott

Faith has been working for the firm since its inception in 1985.  Of course she’s married to Dan so she’s been with him in the hills and valleys we call business.  For about 25 years she functioned as a real estate paralegal abstracting titles from the documents found in the Register of Deeds’ offices in Knox, Sevier and surrounding counties.  Her role these days is administrative support in the office.

Her number one claim to fame is her role as “Mimi” to two young and rambuncious grandsons.  We don’t plan anything for Faith on “Mimi Day” except of course just loving on the two boys.

JD Scott

JD is Faith & Dan’s son.  He now has taken over the role as lead abstractor for the firm.  Around the office you will often hear, “Where’s JD today?”  He travels to nearly every county within 60 miles analyzing the real estate records there and preparing an abstract of title for Dan’s review.

JD’s easy to recognize because he’s the one in the hot truck.  His real passion is building custom trucks.  He’s had his ’95 Blazer in a full feature in both Sport Truck and Mini Truckin magazine.  He’s also following his dad’s love for motorcyles.  On a beautiful fall day, he’s often excited to get an “out of town” title so he can hop on a beautiful blue Harley Davidson Electra Glide and just “head to the next courthouse.”
