The city is preparing for unprecedented growth as Ford’s nearby Blue Oval City progresses toward opening

Memphis, Tennessee, July 19, 2022 – Harris Shelton Hanover Walsh, PLLC, one of Memphis’ largest law firms, today announced that Amber Griffin Shaw, managing partner of Harris Shelton's Covington, Tennessee, office, has been appointed attorney for the Town of Atoka. The city of more than 10,000 citizens is located in Tipton County, just north of the Shelby County line.

“It is an immense privilege to serve as legal counsel for the Town of Atoka,” said Shaw. “And it’s equally as exciting to have a front row seat to the growth and forthcoming projects that will make a tremendous impact in this vibrant community.”

Over the last five years, Atoka has consistently been named the most affordable place to live in Tennessee by SmartAsset. In annual research studies, towns of more than 5,000 people are ranked on an affordability index weighing property taxes, homeowners’ insurance fees, and mortgage payments relative to income.

As Ford’s Blue Oval City electric vehicle manufacturing plant gears up to open just 25 miles from Atoka, Shaw is preparing for potential legal challenges and the increase in population and infrastructure it brings.

“I am looking forward to assisting Atoka as it continues to plan for more people to relocate, a variety of new improvements, and the development of standards that will provide a desirable place to live and work for many years to come,” said Shaw.

For 15 years, Shaw has honed her skills as a lawyer across West Tennessee, representing individuals, counties, and municipalities in a wide variety of circumstances. Shaw has been awarded membership in a variety of categories presented by The National Trial Lawyers including Top 40 Under 40, Top 25 Products Liability, and Top 25 Personal Injury. Shaw has previously been named Tipton County Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Woman of the Year and Memphis Area Legal Services Pro Bono Attorney of the Year.
