About this title


This is an overview of the legal community in Memphis, Tennessee from about 1820 when the first lawyers began to practice in Memphis to the present especially about how the practice of law has changed and who changed it. P General Andrew Jackson and John Overton two of the three developers who founded Memphis were lawyers and although neither of them lived or practiced in Memphis they were luminaries of the Legal Profession. P Both served as justices of the Tennessee Supreme Court and Jackson was the first Congressman from Tennessee and President of the United States. They along with James Winchester also possessed the vision and means to establish this city. P These stories and more are found in this handsome, beautifully illustrated, once in a generation chronicle of the Legal Community in a city that has been a vanguard in precedent setting cases and influence. P Read about the characters, the visionaries, and the pioneers of Legal History as well as the Attorneys and Firms of Memphis that are making history today and creating their own Legacy for future generations to enjoy. It will be time well spent.
