Burgett joins Spears Moore as associate


Attorney Martha Burgett has joined the firm of Spears, Moore, Rebman & Williams. As the firm’s newest associate, Burgett will be focusing her practice on insurance defense.

Burgett earned her J.D. at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. While attending classes on a full scholarship, she served as a law student ambassador, assistant to the dean of admissions, business editor of the Law Review and treasurer of the Student Bar Association. Burgett was also a member of her school’s Duberstein Moot Court team, which won first place in a regional competition in Las Vegas.

After graduating law school in 2015, Burgett worked for two years at the Memphis firm of Apperson Crump. She and her husband, Ryan Burgett, moved to Chattanooga late last year when he took a position with Husch Blackwell’s local office.

Burgett hopes to become an active member of Junior League of Chattanooga and the Young Lawyers Division of the Chattanooga Bar Association. She and her husband are also looking forward to warmer weather so they can raft on the Ocoee River and hike on Lookout Mountain.
