About me

Stacey A. Garrett is a founding member of Bone McAllester Norton PLLC and chair of the firm’s Board of Directors. She concentrates her law practice in the areas of higher education, corporate transactions, healthcare and government affairs. Stacey is also the Vice President of Online and Professional Studies at Cumberland University.


Stacey represents several institutions of higher education. She also serves numerous clients in various corporate transactions. In the area of health care, Stacey represents physicians, medical practice groups and other health care entities and counsels clients in matters concerning contracts, fraud and abuse and compliance issues relating to carriers and intermediaries.


In 2003, former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen appointed Stacey to serve as a Commissioner on the Tennessee Human Rights Commission through 2009. In 2009, he reappointed Stacey to serve on the commission through 2015, where she currently serves as the chair. Bredesen also designated her to serve on a Judicial Redistricting Study Committee and the Committee to Study the Administration of the Death Penalty.


Stacey was formerly Deputy Chief of Staff for Congressman Harold Ford, Jr. of Memphis. She served as Associate General Counsel for Background America, Inc. and AMICUS Staffing Inc. and as Director of Legal Affairs for Corrections Partners, Inc.


As a founding member of Bone McAllester Norton, Stacey believes the law firm is one of her most personally satisfying accomplishments, and says she is driven by her law partners and the firm’s staff who truly embody the firm’s motto, Law. Life. Passion. She believes that the energy of the firm’s attorneys and staff is the reason the firm forges extraordinary client relationships.


Stacey believes deeply in community investment through charitable and civic activities. She began her commitment to community service at the age of 14, volunteering in a nursing home. There she learned the value of service to others and continues to participate in charitable activities throughout the state.


Stacey is a native Nashvillian and loves all things Southern. She is an avid runner and is well on her way to completing her goal of running a half-marathon in all 50 states. She also loves to play the guitar and read; Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring is a favorite in her collection. She finds each morning’s sunrise her greatest inspiration and never misses the opportunity to watch the sun rise each day. Even though she says she’s afraid of heights, Stacey has rappelled down the side of a 27-story office building to benefit the Special Olympics Tennessee. Twice.
