Bert W. McCarter, of both Savannah and Gallatin, Tennessee, is a founding partner of McCarter, Catron & East, PLLC, established in July 2009.

Bert completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Tennessee, cum laude, in 1992, after previously attending the University of Tennessee at Martin and Aquinas College, where he played basketball until 1994. During his tenure at the University of Tennessee, Bert was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. After his graduation, Bert attended law school at the University of Dayton from 1997 to 1999, where he was on the prestigious Walter Rice Moot Court team. From 1999 to 2000, he completed his law school education at Vanderbilt University.

In 2000, Bert served as law clerk for the Honorable Judge Don R. Ash of the Circuit Court for Rutherford County. In 2001, Bert joined the firm later to be known as Dotson, Dotson & McCarter in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and remained there until McCarter, Catron & East was formed in July 2009.

Bert understands the unique challenges of a Murfreesboro criminal defense case. He began his practice of law, concentrating in the areas of domestic relations (i.e., divorce, custody, post-divorce, etc.), criminal defense, personal injury, and has argued multiple times before both the Court of Appeals and Criminal Court of Appeals. Additionally, Bert is certified as a Rule 31 Mediator. Our Murfreesboro divorce lawyer has represented numerous individuals and businesses in both the prosecution and defense of contractual litigation and personal injury issues.

Bert has worked on several high-profile domestic and criminal cases. His unique approach to the practice of law has led to numerous dismissals, a satisfied client base, and made him one of the most respected attorneys offering criminal defense in Murfreesboro.

Bert is an active member of the Tennessee Bar Association, Rutherford/Cannon Bar Associations. He has assisted youth as a soccer coach and as a local businessman offering services for the development of gross motor skills. Bert founded the 100 Club of Rutherford County, and serves on the Board of Directors and on the Advisory Council for CB&S Bank. When not advocating on behalf of his clients, Bert enjoys golf, reading, and spending time with his wife and children. Understanding the needs of modern families allows him to offer experienced Murfreesboro divorce advice and Murfreesboro divorce help.

In June 2011 Bert was appointed by Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey to the Judicial Nominating Commission for the state of Tennessee. In this capacity, Bert is proud to serve the state of Tennessee by working with the other members of the Commission in making judicial nominations to state appellate courts and the state Supreme Court when vacancies arise.

Bert is married to Kathryn Lischke McCarter

    I hired Mr. McCarter in the Summer of 2011 to handle my very contentious custody case with 3 children involved and coming out of Juvenile court going to Circuit Court. Essentially he fought for me on two different battlefields with two different judges and stood up to a difficult opposing counsel showing great charm and patience. He showed great instinct in guiding me thru a difficult emotional time and was professional and encouraging even when i lost my composure.We finished the case well.

    Bert provided excellent service and value for the money. My ex's attorney was based out of Nashville and chose a mediator in Nashville. Bert's name preceded us to the mediation and in turn resulted in me leaving the entire process very satisfied. Bert gave sound advice throughout the entire process and was always available to talk. I have and do recommend his services to anyone I know needing council.
