The oldest continually operating law firm in the Upper Cumberland dates from the one-man practice started in 1932 by W. Keith Crawford. Mr. Crawford partnered with H.S. Barnes in 1948 to form Crawford & Barnes. With the addition of John E. Acuff, the partnership became Crawford, Barnes & Acuff in 1971. The firm became Barnes & Acuff in 1978 following the death of Mr. Crawford. With the retirement of Mr. Barnes and the addition of W.I. Howell Acuff, the firm became Acuff & Acuff, P.C.
