Mr. Kern started his career in Ohio. After completing a degree in Social Work, and then law school, he spent nine years working in public-interest agencies where he represented persons who couldn’t obtain an attorney on their own. In 1992 Ted moved to Knoxville, and spent the next seven years as litigation director for what was then known as Knoxville Legal Aid Society. In 1999 he left public service work to start his own practice. After ten years as a successful solo practictioner, he accepted an offer to join my current firm, Eshbaugh, Waters, Strange-Boston, & Kern.
