White & Polk




GEORGE H. WHITE

George is a native of Murfreesboro who has spent his entire life here with the exception of his time at the University of the South and later Vanderbilt, where he received his legal education.

White jokes and says “my reason for going to law school was I didn’t think I could get into medical school.” A laid-back and kind-hearted person, White enjoys meeting people from all walks of life and helping them with their legal needs in a courteous and polite manner. “I try to avoid drama and create a pleasant but productive work environment,” he said.

When he’s away from the office, White enjoys spending time with his family in Orange Beach, Al — his wife is Marimae, his children, Mary Elam Polk and Elisabeth Vaughn, and their families. He especially loves movies and sporting events with his two grandsons and playing with his three young granddaughters. His other hobbies include reading, walking, fishing and playing golf with his friends.

MARK A. POLK

Mark, a Florida native who moved to Tennessee in 1988 when his father began practicing medicine here, has planted deep roots in Murfreesboro over the years and is grateful to be raising his two sons, Jackson and Bradley, alongside his wife, Mary Elam, in such a wonderful community. Mark is actively involved with the St. Thomas Rutherford Foundation and Middle Tennessee Christian School.

“Murfreesboro has been good to my family,” he said. “The community welcomed my family here with open arms and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.”

A desire to help others is the primary reason Mark was driven to pursue a career in the legal profession.

“My father, T. Allen Polk, always shared the importance of helping others in their time of need,” he said. “People meet with a lawyer for a number of reasons, but most often they have some kind of problem that they just don’t know how to address without someone who understands the law or the court system to achieve the relief they need.”

There’s a common misconception that equates being a good lawyer to being someone who can win arguments, but Mark is quick to clarify this misconception. Mark says being a good lawyer isn’t about being the best arguer, but rather, being a good listener, and therefore an effective advocate for clients during their time of need.
