Legal Aid SocietyNashville, TN – We are all navigating uncertain times. We don’t know when life is going to resume as normal. For most of us, that leaves unanswered questions and worries about the present and the future. Amid lost jobs, illness, closed schools, medical bills and more, the last thing you want to worry about is being evicted from your home during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
 
Is your landlord threatening to kick you out because you temporarily cannot pay rent? Trying to force you out by changing the locks or shutting off the utilities instead of taking you to court? What can you do about it?

Attorneys’ Pro Bono Work Addresses Constant Need

 

Legal Aid SocietyNashville, TN – The words “pro bono” — based on a Latin term meaning “for the public good” — might not mean much to anyone outside the legal profession. For most attorneys in Tennessee and around the country, though, pro bono work is a part of our culture that we take very seriously.

We consider it part of our ethical obligation to volunteer a portion of our time providing legal help, without a fee or at a substantially reduced fee, to people with limited resources.
