At Bone McAllester Norton PLLC, we spend most of our days in pursuit of exceptional legal results for our clients. But every day we also come into contact with individuals, organizations, and corporations with whom we partner to reach the humanitarian needs in our communities. We strive to uphold a practice that simultaneously produces good work for our clients and our community. From the streets of downtown Nashville to our rural neighborhoods, we choose to create a culture at our law firm founded upon making a difference in our community for good.
One of the best ways to extend our services to the community is by fostering a philanthropic connection within our own offices. As a firm, we form teams to rally behind fundraisers and events that support non-profit organizations. Together, we have walked in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk, competed on bowling teams for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and have run in the St. Jude’s Rock "n" Roll Nashville Marathon and Half Marathon to support St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Gilda’s Club. We consistently find creative ways to remain united and passionate in our philanthropic efforts.
Once a year, Sam J. McAllester, Vice Chairman of Bone McAllester Norton and member of Nashville’s Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors, leads the firm in a weekend home “build” with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville. We come alongside a Habitat family, to help them create a quality, affordable home. By partnering with the Habitat family, we are creating “sweat equity,” allowing the family to own their home through their hard work and ours.
During the holidays, our firm selects non-profits who work with children and youth in our community and we provide gifts for these children and members of their families. Our conference rooms are filled with everything from bicycles and jackets to laptops and houseware.
Our lawyers support a wide range of community interests and activities. Most of our attorneys serve on boards of non-profit organizations. From the arts to religious organizations, mentor programs to advocacy groups, our attorneys use their legal and professional skills and personal beliefs to serve our communities. We are proud that all of our attorneys at Bonelaw choose to serve the Nashville community from inside and outside the walls of our law firm.
