Bone McAllester Norton Attorneys, John Branham, Will Cheek & Sharon Jacobs, Named to "Nashville’s 101 Top Lawyers"

Bone McAllester Norton is pleased to announce that three of its attorneys, John Branham, Will Cheek and Sharon Jacobs, were recently selected by their peers and clients for inclusion in the Nashville Post’s "Nashville’s 101 Top Lawyers."


After months of confidentially hearing the frank opinions of local lawyers, judges and businesspeople about members of the local bar, the Nashville Post identified Nashville’s top lawyers. A special effort was made to identify attorneys who are not necessarily very good self-marketers but whom peers hold in high esteem.

John P. Branham for Litigation
William T. Cheek III for Corporate
Sharon O. Jacobs for Environmental
