Alberto Gonzales returns to legal practice

Former U.S. Attorney General joins a Tennessee law firm

Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is joining law firm Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis in Nashville, Tenn., as of counsel. 

Gonzales left his post as the country's top AG in 2007 amid controversy. He was accused of hiring and firing lawyers for political reasons during his tenure with the Justice Department. After an investigation into those accusations, charges were not brought against him.

Before becoming attorney general, Gonzales was a partner at Texas-based firm Vinson & Elkins. After leaving the DOJ, he began teaching at Texas Tech Law School. Now, he plans to split his time at Waller Lansden as well as teach constitutional law at a new law school at Belmont University in Nashville.
