Oscar Smith “Kav” Spivey, III attended the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee where he became a member of the Gamma Sigma Phi Fraternity and obtained a B.A. in Spanish after a tenure studying abroad in Mexico.
He continued on to Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law in Macon, Georgia to obtain his Juris Doctorate where he was awarded Best Appellate Oral Argument during his second year of study. Over the course of his education, Kav also clerked for a reputable trial firm in Nashville, honing his skills within the fields of criminal defense, family law, and plaintiff’s personal injury.
Born and raised in Middle Tennessee, Kav spent his formative years on his family farm, where he was ingrained with the importance of hard work, persistence, and dedication to one’s passions — these values first manifested themselves in the athletic realm, where Kav proved himself a formidable athlete in baseball, basketball, and competitive horseback riding.
During his high school career, this same dedication played out on the court, where Kav scored over 1,000 points as a member of his varsity basketball team. In college, he further developed his athletic career, playing collegiate basketball at the University of the South in Sewanee, TN.
Outside of the courtroom, Kav maintains a variety of extracurricular activities as well as an array of fitness pursuits, including weightlifting and running. He equally enjoys attending live sporting events (the Tennessee Titans and Nashville Predators, in particular), live music, hunting, and spending time on his family farm.
