Located in Bedford County, the town of Normandy, Tennessee covers just a quarter of a square mile. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Normandy Historic District, the town had an estimated population of 147 residents as of 2019. The town was first settled in the middle of the 19th century (1852) as a railroad town along the old Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad Line which would later become the Nashville, Chattanooga, & St. Louis Railroad.
The County of Bedford was once part of Rutherford County; however, in 1807 Rutherford County was split into two smaller counties and Bedford County was born. Named after Thomas Bedford, an American Revolutionary War officer and prominent landowner, Bedford County was later carved up to create Coffee, Moore, Lincoln, and Marshall counties.
Normandy Dam and Normandy Lake are popular attractions for both residents and visitors to the town of Normandy. In fact, Normandy Lake is one of the most popular fishing spots in the entire county.
If you are a first-time defendant, trying to navigate the criminal justice system while dealing with the stress that accompanies an arrest can seem impossible. The good news is that as an accused you have several critical rights guaranteed to you by the U.S. Constitution. One of the most important of those rights is the right against self-incrimination, or the right to remain silent. An important benefit of retaining the services of a criminal lawyer is that your lawyer can be your voice, making it easier for you to remain silent. Until you have spoken to an attorney, however, it is imperative that you decline to speak to anyone (including law enforcement and even your own family) about the details of your case. At Bennett, Michael & Hornsby you will find the best criminal defense lawyers near you who are ready to aggressively protect you and your future.

Probate is the name given to the legal process that is typically required following the death of an individual. Because probate can be time consuming and costly, probate avoidance is a common estate planning goal. Using a trust, instead of a Last Will and Testament, to distribute your property and personal items is a popular and simple way to avoid probate with your own estate. If you recently lost a loved one and find yourself in charge of the estate, you may be wondering “How do I find the best trust and estate planning attorney near me?” Whether you need help administering the estate of a loved one who recently passed away or you want to make sure that your estate avoids probate, we urge you to consult with one of our experienced trust and estate planning attorneys at Bennett, Michael & Hornsby.
