ANTIOCH, Tennessee – Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennessee’s largest nonprofit law firm, today announced the launch of a new free monthly legal clinic taking place at the Southeast branch of the Nashville Public Library in Antioch.
The clinic will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 1, at the library, located at 5260 Hickory Hollow Parkway, Suite 202, Antioch, TN 37013. It will be held the first Saturday of each month through June at the same time.
Volunteer attorneys will be on hand at the clinic to assist attendees with a range of civil legal matters, such as such as landlord/tenant disputes, family law, estate planning and debt collection. The attorneys are not able to assist with criminal matters.
“Our monthly free legal clinics, staffed by Nashville-area attorneys working on a pro bono basis, are designed to supplement the efforts of our staff attorneys to provide access to legal services to low-income clients across the Middle Tennessee area,” said Jordan Stringer, Volunteer Lawyers Program director for Legal Aid Society. “We’re very grateful to our pro bono attorneys for volunteering their time, and we look forward to better serving the Antioch area through this clinic. Libraries are great community spaces because they’re publicly and easily accessible, and our Volunteer Lawyers Program hopes to utilize them even more in the future for similar events.”
