The Nashville Children’s Alliance is a nonprofit agency that provides services at no cost to children in Davidson County who have experienced sexual or severe physical abuse. Some of these services include front-line forensic interviews to assist in determining if abuse has occurred, weekly therapy sessions, court support, crisis services to families and support groups for non-offending parents.
The Nashville Children’s Alliance, formerly the Nashville Child Advocacy Center, was founded in 1992 by a community task force seeking coordinated services and better outcomes for children when there were allegations of sexual or severe physical abuse.
Markham’s practice is focused on defending pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers in mass tort and individual cases pending in various state and federal venues throughout the country.
She is a member of the American Bar Association, Mississippi Bar Association, Tennessee Bar Association, Nashville Bar Association, Defense Research Institute and Nashville Children’s Alliance. Markham is admitted to practice in Tennessee and Mississippi.
Markham received her undergraduate degree from the University of Mississippi and earned her Juris Doctor from Mississippi College. She previously served as a law clerk for the Rutherford County Chancery Court for the Honorable Chancellor Robert E. Corlew, III.
