Yarbrough and Little Join Bone McAllester Norton’s New Practice of Criminal Defense and Government Investigations

NASHVILLE – Charles W. Bone, founder and chairman of Bone McAllester Norton PLLC, today announced that attorneys Ed Yarbrough and Alex Little have joined the firm. They, along with current firm member James Mackler, are creating a new practice of Criminal Defense and Government Investigations.

“Our new practice has been created to serve individuals and corporate clients facing criminal charges, investigations by federal and state authorities, regulatory enforcement actions, internal investigations and compliance audits,” Bone said. “Ed is a seasoned veteran and a champion of the courtroom, and Alex brings extensive knowledge of criminal law and technology. Together, with James Mackler, their experience and proficiency will be essential to the strength of our new division.”

Ed Yarbrough is a former United States Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee appointed by President George W. Bush. He is an award-winning lawyer with more than 40 years of experience. He practices Criminal Defense and Government Investigations, Personal Injury Law and Litigation and Dispute Resolution.

Mr. Yarbrough has tried more than 150 jury cases to verdict, including more than 40 homicide cases. He has served as both prosecuting attorney and defense attorney in matters involving white collar crime, wrongful death, personal injury, public corruption and a variety of criminal charges at the state and federal levels.

A former infantry lieutenant in the United Sates Army, Mr. Yarbrough’s desire to be on the front lines has served him well in his civil and criminal law practice. He has been recognized on numerous listings among the nation’s top lawyers, like SuperLawyers and Best Lawyers in America. He has been elected a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and received the first Criminal Justice Section Service Award from the Tennessee Bar Association in 2011.

Alex Little is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, where he prosecuted cases involving national security, white collar crime, drugs and violent crime. As a former prosecutor, he draws on extensive trial and appellate experience in state and federal courts to aggressively represent clients facing investigations or defending against criminal charges.

During his time with the U.S. Department of Justice, Mr. Little developed a deep understanding of criminal law and technology, including the legal issues implicated by Title III wiretaps, GPS tracking, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), video surveillance and evidence obtained from social networking sites like Facebook and Instagram.

Before his time as a federal prosecutor, Mr. Little worked on a broad range of foreign policy matters in the United States and abroad. He has served as a law clerk and consultant to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), as an analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency and as an adviser to former President Jimmy Carter in the Conflict Resolution Program at The Carter Center. In those roles, he assisted in the development of the first indictments issued by the ICC for war crimes in Uganda, drafted intelligence briefings for senior U.S. policymakers and facilitated negotiations between governments and rebel groups in Africa.

Mr. Little also serves as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Vanderbilt Law School, instructing a course on “The Law of Secrets and Lies,” which covers everything from perjury, defamation and fraud to the Espionage Act, grand jury secrecy and the Fourth Amendment.

James Mackler, attorney with Bone McAllester Norton and a former Senior Trial Counsel in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps, is a member of the newly created practice of Criminal Defense and Government Investigations.

The practice, made up of a former U.S. Attorney, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney, and a former JAG Corps attorney, provides clients with the broad courtroom and trial experience of these attorneys, their first-hand knowledge of how state and federal agencies investigate cases and the reputation they have built as strong advocates of their clients' interests.
