By the numbers: Chattanooga, Tennessee's vibrant legal community

The number of active attorneys in Chattanooga and Hamilton County, Tennessee more than doubled between 1979 and 2014 and stands at 1,334 lawyers. And counting.

That’s one of the interesting statistics about Chattanooga’s legal profession in a recent Times Free Press story.

Here are others:

  • The number of active lawyers in Tennessee increased by more than two and a half times during that same period -- from 8,267 active lawyers in 1979 to 21,537 active attorneys last year.
  • The average lawyer in Chattanooga was paid $117,540 in 2013, compared with the U.S. average of $131,990, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • The Chattanooga Bar Association includes 800 active local attorneys.
  • The Chattanooga Bar Association was founded in 1897 after a disastrous fire destroyed the downtown building where many lawyers then had offices.
  • The fire destroyed thousands of volumes of valuable law books which had been shared among the lawyers in the building.
  • Chattanooga also is home to one of the oldest law firms in the South, Miller & Martin PLLC, which began in 1869.
  • Miller & Martin is Chattanooga's biggest law firm with 130 lawyers in three cities.
