This week Jim Romer and Melanie Lane announced that beginning January 1, 2015, their law firm name will become “Romer, Lane & Howard, PLLC.”  Amanda worked as a law clerk at the office while she attended law school and has been practicing law with them since her admission to the Tennessee Bar last May.  Papers were filed in December with the Tennessee Department of State making the name change official.

They stated, “We welcome her to the firm which has history dating back to the 1940s and was founded by Jim Blaine Reagan, William G. Craven, and Hollis Neal.”  Jim joined the firm in 1979, and Melanie in 2007.  Amanda, the daughter of Ruble Jr. and Vickie Upchurch, is married to Jeremy Howard. They have one daughter, Olivia, who turned nine months old on December 26th.
