Mr. James Thomas Amburgey


My name is Thomas Amburgey, and I was born and raised in Johnson City Tennessee. After graduating from Appalachian School of Law in 2007, I moved to Asheville North Carolina and began my career in the Buncombe County District Attorney’s Office. While working as an Assistant District Attorney for the past seven years, I have handled thousands of cases ranging from speeding tickets to first degree murder, and everything in between.

Now that I am in private practice, I believe my clients benefit from the training and experience I have had in the courtroom and my extensive knowledge of the law.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending my time with my friends and family. In the fall, you will find me in Knoxville cheering for the Tennessee Volunteers.
