Tess Severin Butler, JD

Chief Compliance Officer

Tess began working for the firm in 2016 as an investment adviser representative after graduating from The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!). From the start, Tess loved working with clients and became very involved with the firm's compliance. This inspired her to attend law school at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, where she graduated in the top 15% of her class. During her time in law school, Tess served as an Executive Editor on the Washington University Law Review. She also spent a summer working for the Securities and Exchange Commission in the Division of Enforcement as an honors intern. During her second summer of law school, she worked for a large law firm, spending much of her time working on securities law matters, estate planning, and general corporate law. After graduation, Tess brought her new legal experience back to the firm as Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel. In addition to working with compliance, Tess still assists existing and new clients, and sits on the firm's investment committee.

She spends her free time enjoying her new baby and occasionally finding time to play some tennis.
