'Volunteer Attorney' Shows New Concept in Pro Bono

The spring 2012 edition of The Tennessee Volunteer Attorney provides news from across the state about the pro bono and legal aid work being done by you and your colleagues in the bar. This issue features a new concept in pro bono, the Pillar Firm Pro Bono Initiative, where law firms can choose a substantive area of law, train and develop expertise, and Legal Aid will direct those particular kinds of cases to them. For example in Nashville, Baker Donelson will focus on parenting plans in divorce cases; Bass Berry will focus on landlord tenant cases; Bradley Arant will focus on appeals of denials of Medicaid benefits; Miller & Martin will focus on divorces; Stites & Harbison will focus on appeals of the denial of unemployment benefits; and Waller will focus on debt clinics and debtor litigation.
