Attorney Ethan Hargraves

Ethan joined the Massey & Associates team in 2017 as his first full-time employment after law school. However, he spent two years as a law clerk working for justices on the Alabama and Tennessee Supreme Courts. This experience honed Ethan’s understanding of how cases are handled throughout the legal system and the importance of doing things right from the very beginning.

Ethan is married to his high-school sweetheart, Alanna. The two of them met at a Valentine’s dance in Chattanooga when they were in High School. They have five beautiful children. They also have a Blue Tick Coonhound (Tennessee’s state dog) named Gus, as well as various chickens, guineas, and goats. Ethan and his family are followers of Jesus Christ. They are members of Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Red Bank.

Ethan was born and raised in the Chattanooga area. He spent his entire childhood on his family’s farm in Harrison. Even today, when Ethan is not in court, he enjoys raising poultry, growing crops, and hunting deer and turkey to put food on the table. He also likes to pick around on the banjo every chance he gets. Ethan also loves growing and eating the hottest pepper on the planet—the Carolina Reaper. Ethan took first place in the Extreme Hot Pepper Eating Contest at the 2022 Bristol Pepper Fest in Bristol, Tennessee.

Ethan attended Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee, for his undergraduate and then earned his law degree, magna cum laude, from Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg, Virginia. Ethan served as Editor-in-Chief of the Liberty University Law Review. His essay on how the United States Supreme Court should rule in a certain case won a national award delivered at a reception at the United States Supreme Court.

As part of the Massey & Associates team, Ethan has focused his career on helping working people who have been injured or wrongfully discriminated against by their employers. Ethan knows that being mistreated and tossed aside can be incredibly painful, and so Ethan works hard to represent all his clients with honesty and compassion.
