Our History

A century ago, William A. Vinson and James A. Elkins were brought together by a shared desire—to create an enduring partnership of outstanding professionals that clients could rely upon for their legal needs. As we reflect on our past and look forward to our future, we want to express our gratitude to our clients for placing their trust in us and to all members of the V&E family, past and present, who helped fulfill our founders’ vision.
