Junction Box


I'm redoing/adding lights and switches in my kitchen and hallway. The 15 amp feed that I will be using for the lights is up in the attic (easy access.) Is there a problem with bring the feed into a junction box in the attic then branching off to the four individual switch boxes from there rather then pig tailing in the switch boxes? Thanks

As long as the rules for accessibility and box capacity are met you should be fine.
