Introducing Michael Shope, Title Group’s In-House Attorney

Aug 3, 2017 | Featured Staff Members

Title Group of Tennessee is proud to introduce Michael Shope as our new In-House Attorney.

Michael joined Title Group of Tennessee in May of 2017. He graduated from the Webb School of Knoxville and he attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville for his undergraduate degree, where he majored in Business Administration. While attending UT, Michael was a member of the UT Water Polo Team and he was also a member of Sigma Chi fraternity.

Michael comes from a real estate family, so it’s no shock that he ended up in the business, too. His mom was a Realtor in Knoxville for many years.

Law was something that always fascinated Michael, so three years after graduating college he decided to go back and get his law degree. He attended the Duncan School of Law at Lincoln Memorial University.

While attending law school, Michael worked at 21st Mortgage for the first three semesters.  He then went on to be a law clerk for Steven G. Shope, Attorney at Law, for one semester, and then at Breeding & Dothard, LLC, for two years until he graduated. He also completed externships at Knox County Community Mediation Center and the 8th Judicial District Criminal Court for Tennessee.

Prior to joining Title Group of Tennessee in May, Michael served as Chief Financial Officer and General Counsel for Thunder Enterprises, where he worked on a 9,000-acre mountain top development in Marion County, Tennessee.

In addition to serving as Title Group of Tennessee’s In-House Attorney, Michael has his own law firm, Shope & Associates, PLLC, which specializes in real estate services and small business formation.

Michael is married and is a proud father of two kids, Zeb and Avalyn. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family. Whenever time allows, Michael enjoys going out on the lake and spending time in the  mountains.  He is also a diehard Tennessee Volunteers Fan.

Michael can be contacted directly by phone at 865-392-5805 or by email at
