Commitment to our community.
At Bone McAllester Norton, we spend most of our days in pursuit of progress and fair solutions for our clients. Therefore, it is impossible to ignore the civic and humanitarian duties outside of the law that correspond to our personal goals of bettering our community. We strive to make our law firm’s culture synonymous with good works for our clients and our community and are honored to see these efforts recognized by those around us.
Our lawyers support a wide range of community progress and activity, with many of them serving on the boards of non-profit organizations.
In May of 2011, Community Nashville named Charles Bone an honoree for the 40th annual Human Relations Award Dinner, one of Nashville’s most important events to reflect an outstanding devotion to human rights.
In October of 2011, Stacey Garrett was elected as chairman of the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, after having been re-appointed by former governor Phil Bredesen to serve in the agency until 2015. In addition, multiple attorneys in the firm have been selected as members of Leadership Nashville, helping to connect the different areas of the city and address crucial community issues.
Our lawyers support a wide range of community progress and activity, with many of them serving on the boards of non-profit organizations. These include everything from Habitat for Humanity of Middle Tennessee, Nashville Cares and Conexión Américas, to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts Foundation, the Actors Bridge Ensemble and the Belcourt Theatre. We are proud that all attorneys at Bone McAllester Norton use their passions, whether it is in the arts, for a religious affiliation, or as a mentor, to promote and execute change.
Change starts on the inside.
We find that one of the best ways to extend our services to the community at large is to foster a connection within our own office, so we often rally behind fundraisers and events that support non-profit organizations. On Fridays, five dollars will buy a staff member or lawyer the right to wear jeans, with the funds going to a specific charitable organization. Together, we have walked in the American Heart Association Walk, bowled on a Bowling Team for Big Brothers Big Sisters and run the Country Music Marathon to support Gilda’s Club. We consistently find creative ways to remain united and passionate in our philanthropic pursuits.
