Anne C. Martin was sworn in as a judge on the Davidson County Chancery Court, Part II, on September 1, 2018. Previously she practiced with the Nashville firm of Bone McAllester Norton, PLLC, where she concentrated her practice in the areas of commercial litigation and employment law, representing both employers and employees.
A preeminent Nashville employment lawyer, Anne has been widely published in the areas of employment law as it relates to matters including discharge, disability leave, discrimination, harassment and non-compete agreements. She also served as a guest lecturer at the Belmont University Center for Entrepreneurship during the fall 2009 and spring 2010 semesters, applying her expertise to a Venture Management class.
Anne loves being a lawyer, and attributes that to excellent mentoring by lawyers who taught her how to provide good client service, how to appropriately and effectively communicate with her clients, and what was expected of her by judges before whom she appears.
Anne is proud of the clients she has helped over the years, and of the recognition she has achieved for her leadership among her peers (see awards). She looks forward to taking that experience and knowledge to the bench.
Anne is also active in her local community. She recently served on the Mayor's Advisory Council on Early Childhood Development and Education, and is currently on the board of First Steps, Inc. Previously she has served on the boards of a number of nonprofits that help the poor and children. As much as Anne enjoys her profession, she feels an obligation to give back to the community and to use the special gifts she has developed as a lawyer to help others who cannot help themselves.
