Bass Berry & Sims Launches Pro Bono Program

Bass, Berry & Sims has announced the launch of a comprehensive new Pro Bono Program, which includes the BBS Fellowship. The fellowship will allow one or two attorneys across the firm’s four offices to spend up to six months serving full-time in a pro bono capacity within the community. The first BBS Fellowship placement began on April 22, when attorney Angie Bergman started a six-month fellowship at the Choosing Justice Initiative (CJI) to advocate for bail reform in Nashville’s criminal courts. The firm also created a Pro Bono Member position, allowing a partner of the firm to dedicate half of his/her work to pro bono activities and administration of the firm’s program. Attorney David Esquivel – a long-time advocate of pro bono and access-to-justice initiatives – will serve in this capacity.
