Jean Crowe Honored for Service
Legal Aid attorney retires after long and influential career
The Nashville Coalition Against Domestic Violence honored Legal Aid attorney and domestic violence prevention advocate Jean Crowe at a recent reception. Crowe retired this September after 28 years of service in the Nashville office of the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands. Her nearly three decades with Legal Aid included 15 years as managing attorney of the Family Law Section, where she crafted a program centered on holistic advocacy and helping clients become self-sufficient.
The many speakers at the reception included fellow public-service lawyers and members of the private bar as well as social service providers and members of the judiciary. Each one detailed Crowe’s profound impact on the family law community, both locally and nationally. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean spoke of Crowe's significant role in crafting Nashville's response to domestic violence and presented her with a Mayoral Proclamation.
The reception was held at Waller Law and sponsors for the event included the Tennessee Bar Association and former TBA President Jacqueline Dixon, among many others in the middle Tennessee legal community. Photos by Liz Todaro
