Tennessee Bar Association leaders joined more than 350 of their colleagues from across the country for 2014 ABA Lobby Days in Washington, D.C., April 8-10. The annual event provides legal leaders the opportunity to meet individually with legislators and their staffs to cut through the noise of other special interests on Capitol Hill and successfully educate Congress on issues of importance to lawyers. In addition to urging the legislators to support funding for the Legal Services Corp. (LSC), TBA leaders urged lawmakers to reject Tax Reform legislation that would tax certain law firms using accrual rather than cash accounting. Photos courtesy of the American Bar Association.
