He has practiced before Tennessee trial courts throughout the State of Tennessee, Federal District Courts in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Tennessee and Wisconsin, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth and Eleventh Circuits. He is also a Rule 31 recognized Civil Mediator in the State of Tennessee.  A highly evaluated public speaker, Luther has spoken before numerous industry groups, professional associations and clients across the country on topics ranging from implementation of employee discipline to the Employee Free Choice Act.  His 1995 Law Review Article, Who?s Black, Who?s White and Who Cares: Reconceptualizing the United States?
