Legal Aid of East Tennessee hosted its Knoxville Pro Bono Celebration Tuesday honoring local attorneys who have donated at least 25 hours of their time and legal services during the past year to aid those who otherwise could not afford an attorney. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of three annual Pro Bono Project Awards. Ryan Gardner was recognized as the Donald F. Paine Law Student Volunteer of the Year, Richard L. Duncan was given the Pro Bono Advocacy Award for his donation of almost 100 hours of service and Paine, Tarwater, and Bickers, LLP was named the Law Firm of the Year.
