NASHVILLE, TN—Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that nine attorneys in the firm’s Nashville office have been recognized by the Tennessee Supreme Court as 2020 “Attorneys for Justice.” The firm’s honorees are Kimberly M. Ingram, Alexandra C. Lynn, Erin Malone-Smolla, Casey L. Miller, Peter C. Sales, Edmund S. Sauer, Jeffrey W. Sheehan, Fritz Spainhour, David K. Taylor.
This marks the seventh consecutive year that the Tennessee Supreme Court has recognized “Attorneys for Justice,” which the court defines as lawyers who work a minimum of 50 pro bono hours annually to provide legal services to those who cannot afford the costs. The goal of the recognition program is to increase statewide pro bono work to 50 percent participation.
Attorneys in Bradley’s Nashville office are actively involved in a number of pro bono efforts, including the newly launched Black-Owned Small Business and Nonprofit Legal Clinic, which provides accessible and affordable business-oriented legal services to Black-owned small businesses and nonprofits in the Nashville area. In 2020, attorneys and staff from across all of the firm’s offices performed more than 13,000 hours of pro bono service valued at more than $5.3 million.
