Amaobi Enyinnia brings a versatile, perceptive and comprehensive approach to problem-solving and litigation.
Amaobi’s practice focuses on commercial litigation, transportation, personal injury and product liability cases. He applies his experience working in business, government, e-discovery and clinical settings to advance a client’s goals and develop efficient solutions that “move the ball forward.”
As the second child of two Nigerian immigrants living and working in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Amaobi has always appreciated the perspectives of people from every walk of life. Since every case is different, he knows that finding the best answer to a problem requires knowing even the smallest details, understanding the needs and characteristics of all parties and a willingness to work tirelessly toward the best solution. As Theodore Roosevelt once said, “We cannot do great deeds unless we are willing to do the small things that make up the sum of greatness.”
Amaobi graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in political science before attending the University of Tennessee College of Law, where he repeatedly made the Dean’s List, graduated magna cum laude and was invited to join the Order of the Coif. In his third year of law school, he was admitted to practice in the school’s Non-Profits Legal Clinic, where he served numerous clients and was recognized as a Distinguished Student Attorney. He was also an articles editor and served on the Editorial Board of the Tennessee Law Review. Today, Amaobi serves on the firm's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee.
Outside the office, Amaobi enjoys enthusiastically cheering on the Memphis Grizzlies, Vanderbilt Commodores, Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Braves, Nashville Predators and Nigeria’s Super Eagles. He’s also an avid student of U.S. history; enjoys traveling (to Nigeria and beyond); reading; and keeping up with current events, foreign affairs and the latest advancements in the tech world.
