Demi Marks is a partner at McCracken Kuhn Marks PLLC. She works in close conjunction with all the firm’s clients, specializing in divorce, pre- and post-marital agreements, entertainment law, estate planning, and child custody.

Prior to moving to Nashville, Demi worked at a boutique family law office in Beverly Hills, California. She handled a variety of complex litigation cases involving high net worth individuals, from post-judgment enforcements of qualified domestic orders to child and animal custody cases. Her favorite part of the job was advocating for her clients and helping them develop creative divorce solutions.
Demi also has an entertainment law background, having worked at Amazon, NBCUniversal, and Sony in various capacities during her time in Los Angeles. While attending UCLA School of Law, she was the President of the Entertainment Law Society, Chief Articles Editor for the Entertainment Law Review, and Submissions Editor for the Journal of Law and Technology.
During her time at UCLA, Demi studied with the esteemed collaborative law professional, Forrest “Woody” Mosten. She soon realized her passion for family law and, through Woody’s mentorship, developed skills in mediation, collaborative law, and hybrid solutions to tricky family law situations. After graduation, Demi worked with Woody as a research assistant on his book Unbundled Legal Services: A Family Lawyer’s Guide.
When Demi is not at work, she can typically be found hiking the greenways with her husband, Lorne, daughter, Ryder, and their two pups, Riggins and Wild, riding horses, or exploring the globe. She is a passionate advocate for animals and volunteers with various organizations.
