Calculating the new Child Tax Credit into a client's parenting plan is complicated but necessary. Read "Who Gets the Credit" in the March Tennessee Bar Journal for help. TBA President Jason Pannu gives support to criminal justice reform, pointing out that lawyers are in a unique position to add to that discussion, finding ideas and common ground to improve the system. This issue also has the YLD CASA Volunteer of the Year, ethical issues in estate planning, the checkered past of Gov. William Blount, apologies for your client, a review of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's book, plus a little fun at the end. Don't miss it!


Keep up with the achievements and moves of your colleagues across the state and beyond with the TBA's new online Success! feature. The print edition of this service will continue in the Tennessee Bar Journal, however, the legal community and general public will now be able to find the same information online and search by Success type as well as the recognition by name and location. Attorneys and firm representatives also may now submit items for Success! through a new online submission form.
