Attorneys Help Locally, Statewide on Pro Bono Front

The Daily News

Author: Rebekah Hearn

Doing pro bono work is not a new concept for Memphis attorneys.

But recent efforts by law firms and individuals have brought the need to the forefront. The recent induction of George T. “Buck” Lewis as president of the Tennessee Bar Association, for example, should spark a renewed effort across the state. (See today’s Law Talk on Page 3 for more.)

Locally, two nonprofit organizations are most known for providing pro bono work to those who need legal help but can’t afford it. But those groups, Memphis Area Legal Services and the Community Legal Center, can’t do it all.

That’s where local attorneys and firms are stepping up to take on referrals from these two organizations and walk-in pro bono cases, as well as participating in local pro bono clinics.
