Clarksville, TN – Katy Olita, an attorney with Batson Nolan Law Firm, has been approved as a Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 listed mediator in general civil cases by the Tennessee Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission (ADRC).

Mediators who are attorneys must also be in good standing with the Board of Professional Responsibility and not be the subject of three or more open complaints made to the Board.
In 2006, Katy and her family moved home to Clarksville, and she joined the Batson Nolan firm. Her practice has been in Civil Litigation, with an emphasis in Governmental Liability, Education Law, Employment Law and Business Litigation.
