Christian & Small LLP was established in July of 2000 by Thomas W. Christian and Clarence M. Small, both of whom were partners with Rives & Peterson (est. 1936), Christian & Small’s predecessor firm. The founding members thought it appropriate to emphasize the broad base of the firm’s practice and the technological efficiencies and investments that had allowed the firm formerly known as Rives & Peterson to grow to one of the preeminent firms in the Southeast.

While Mr. Christian and Mr. Small are no longer with us, their legacy lives on in our continued commitment to excellence and client service. We acknowledge the firm’s roots and celebrate the firm’s longstanding commitment to our clients, our community, and our profession. This important history is the foundation upon which we move forward to continue helping our clients seize opportunities and meet the legal challenges they face.

Mr. Tom Christian
Mr. Clarence Small
