Spragins, Barnett & Cobb is one of the oldest law firms in Jackson, dedicated to serving our clients so that they can achieve their objectives. The Firm represents many of Jackson's most creative business people and is a dominant force in the region's legal community.

The roots of the firm date from 1897, when R. F. Spragins commenced the practice of law in Jackson, Tennessee. After his death in 1923, his son, R. Hearn Spragins commenced practicing law in 1926 and T. L. Spragins, another son, joined that practice in 1929. Sidney W. Spragins began practicing with his father, R. Hearn Spragins in 1956. In 1975 Sidney W. Spragins and Franklin Murchison combined their practices and Mr. Murchison's father, Carmack Murchison became 'Of Counsel'. In 1994, the Firm merged with Butler and Rheney, combining the two practices. Over the years, the firm has been home to attorneys who have gone on to become Circuit Judges ( T. L. Spragins and Franklin Murchison), Bankruptcy Court Trustee (William L. Guy), City Attorney (Sidney W. Spragins and Lewis L. Cobb), Mayor of the City of Jackson (Charles H. Farmer), and Chancery Court Judge (James F. Butler).

Spragins, Barnett & Cobb has a diverse client base and professional talent. Lewis L. Cobb currently serves as the City Attorney for the City of Jackson and the Town of Medina. Charles H. Barnett, III is General Counsel for the Health, Education and Housing Facilities Board of the City of Jackson.

Dedicated to growth and change, Spragins, Barnett & Cobb acquired and moved to our current location in 1997. We consistently meet our clients needs by increasing efficiency through technology and keeping pace with the trends and changes in today's legal and business climate.

Currently Spragins, Barnett & Cobb has fourteen (14) highly skilled attorneys and a highly competent team of paralegals and support staff. Our Summer Associate Program is one of the most important elements of Spragins, Barnett & Cobb hiring efforts. We actively recruit second and third year law students from area Colleges of Law. The Program is designed to provide the law student with a realistic view of how a law firm operates and how to actually practice law. Each summer associate is assigned a mentor who is a member of the Firm. The Firm also hosts social events to provide additional interaction with the associates and their families. The relationship benefits the associate and also allows the Firm to evaluate the associate as a possible hire. Many of the summer associates have been offered employment after graduation.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
