Inscription.  Wyatt Thomas Norman and William Harrison Shook, both Cherokee County natives, opened a law office on the Courthouse Square in 1898. George Gibson became a partner in 1918. He later moved to Jacksonville and opened a branch there. Wyatt T. Norman's son joined the firm in 1930, becoming a partner in 1932 and later maintaining the Jacksonville office. Throughout its history, the firm has retained the Norman name in its title. It remains widely known as the Norman Law Firm. The firm has contributed to Texas legal history, successfully representing both individuals and national corporations. The Norman firm has produced judges, politicians and local, county and state leaders. It continues in the traditions of its founders.
