Supreme Court Honors Rutherford County Lawyers For Remarkable Service

Mar 03, 2021 at 01:59 pm by WGNS

The Tennessee Supreme Court and the Access to Justice Commission recently recognized seventeen Rutherford County lawyers as 2020 Attorneys for Justice, an honor awarded to all attorneys who provide at least fifty hours of pro bono service to the community and those in need.

"The passion and commitment that comes with doing pro bono service are what we needed in the difficult and uncertain times of 2020,” said Anne-Louise Wirthlin, Director of the Access to Justice Initiative. “The attorneys being recognized as Attorneys for Justice helped their community connect with much-needed resources. Their dedication to serving Tennesseans in need is remarkable."

The Access to Justice Commission was created by the Supreme Court to develop a strategic plan for improving access to justice in Tennessee, which includes education of the public, identification of priorities to meet the need of improved access to justice, and recommendations to the Supreme Court of projects and programs the Commission determines to be necessary and appropriate for enhancing access to justice in Tennessee.
