Nashville employment lawyer Curt Masker has dedicated his career to fighting on behalf of working people. Curt has a proven track record of successfully representing Tennessee workers in wrongful termination cases. He actively keeps his caseload as low as possible so he can tailor his legal services to address each client’s unique needs and goals.

Curt does not represent employers or companies; instead, he exclusively represents individuals. Curt is a relentless advocate for his clients and he strives to achieve the best possible outcome in each case. He provides assertive and highly responsive representation.

Curt’s approach to litigation is based on the firm belief that only vigorous trial preparation can yield the best results for his clients. He often hires expert witnesses to further establish employer liability and calculate the full scope of damages suffered by his clients. Put simply, Curt levels the playing field for working people who have been wronged by their employers.

Professional Background

After graduating from Vanderbilt Law School, Curt worked at one of the 200 largest law firms in the United States. He then worked for a small plaintiffs’ law firm in Nashville, where he spent his days learning the complexities of employment litigation. In 2020, Curt founded The Masker Firm, an employment law firm dedicated to representing individuals in wrongful termination cases.

In 2021, Curt was selected as a Super Lawyers® Mid-South Rising Star, a distinction limited to only 2.5% of lawyers in Tennessee. Most recently, Curt was recognized in the 2022 Edition of Best Lawyers® “Ones to Watch” for Labor and Employment Litigation.

He is a member of the Nashville Bar Association, the Tennessee Bar Association, the Tennessee Employment Lawyers Association, and the National Employment Lawyers Association. Curt has also completed extensive litigation skills training through the well-respected National Institute for Trial Advocacy.

Personal Background

Curt was raised on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. He stayed in Michigan for his undergraduate education but moved to Tennessee to complete law school, where he quickly felt at home thanks to Nashville’s small-town hospitality and natural beauty. Outside of the office, you can find him exploring Shelby Bottoms Greenway, reading a book on his back porch in East Nashville, or cooking dinner alongside his better half, Caraline, a native Tennessean and fellow employment lawyer.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Curt worked diligently and maintained excellent communication with my case. He made sure to keep us updated about any and everything. I highly recommend the Masker Firm. Would give more stars if possible. Jeffrey
★★★★★
Curt really came through for me when a previous employer had reported my job title and hire dates incorrectly, he got it corrected within 12 hours of speaking to him about it! I would recommend him for any of your legal needs as he is quite efficient! Renee
★★★★★
Curt was very responsive from the beginning. He made it a very easy process, and he provided excellent guidance in the review of my severance agreement. Due, in part, to Curt's thoughtful suggestions in regards to changing some key language in the agreement that would protect both me and my former employer, they agreed to the changes. To protect yourself during job transition, a review of a severance agreement is a smart thing to do, and Curt will do an excellent job on your behalf. Thomas
★★★★★
Curt handled a case for me and did an unbelievable job in getting a resolution and a great settlement. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Teena
