Since joining The Landers Firm, PLC, Mr. Wallis has worked almost exclusively on domestic and family law cases, including cases involving divorce, child custody, child visitation, alimony, child support, protective orders and child relocation. Before that, he worked at an insurance defense firm, handling personal injury and subrogation litigation defense.


Mr. Wallis was born in a small town in Missouri (his family lived on a pig farm at the time) but spent most of his life in Memphis. He enjoys spending time on the road with his family, movies, exercising and eating food prepared by others because he cannot cook to save his life. In his previous career, he performed with a professional theater company, traveling and performing in schools and libraries throughout New York, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Massachusetts and New Jersey and also worked as an actor at an outdoor theater company in Ohio.
