Steiner & Steiner LLC is one of the oldest established firms in Nashville.  It was founded in September 1989 by Francis Joseph Steiner and his daughter, Ann Buntin Steiner.  They made a great team trying discrimination and personal injury cases throughout Middle Tennessee. Steiner & Steiner fights diligently for its clients to obtain the best possible results.

Francis Joseph Steiner (1929-2010)

Frank Steiner, our founder, was a native of Chattanooga, TN. He attended Vanderbilt for both undergraduate and law school. After graduating he went to work at the United States Justice Department in Washington, DC and then settled into a practice back in his home state of Tennessee. He successfully tried discrimination and wage and hour cases across the country before forming Steiner & Steiner in 1989 with his daughter, Ann Steiner. He died in 2010 but his legacy of fighting for the uniquely American ideal of non-discrimination in the workplace lives on at the firm. 

Ann Buntin Steiner

Ann obtained her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Kentucky and her law degree from Vanderbilt University. After graduating she formed the firm of Steiner & Steiner with her father, Frank Steiner.  She has devoted her career to representing individuals subjected to work place discrimination.
