Law office honored by TBA at luncheon ceremony
NASHVILLE, Jan. 24, 2012 — The Knoxville law firm of Paine, Tarwater and Bickers LLP was recognized at the Tennessee Bar Association's annual public service luncheon Saturday for its commitment to pro bono legal service. It joins more than 40 firms across the state that have adopted formal pro bono policies calling on employees to do more for Tennesseans who cannot afford legal representation.
Firm attorney J. Scott Griswold accepted the award from TBA President Danny Van Horn of Memphis.
The Pro Bono Policy initiative is one element of a multi-faceted TBA campaign to educate the legal profession and the public on the need for increased free legal services in the state, and find new ways for lawyers to participate in pro bono service.
