Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has been presented with the 2022 Pro Bono Leadership Award from the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands (LAS).
Bradley received the award at the 2022 Nashville Bar Association Law Day Luncheon on May 6 in recognition of the firm’s leadership in pro bono service. In 2021, attorneys and staff in the Nashville office volunteered 4,245 hours in pro bono service. Firm-wide, Bradley contributed more than $526,000 to over 100 charitable organizations. The firm also launched its Black-Owned Small Business and Nonprofit Clinic in Nashville focused on providing accessible and affordable business-oriented services to Black-owned businesses and nonprofits.
“We are proud to be recognized by an organization whose advocacy for access to legal representation aligns with the mission of our pro bono program,” said Bradley Pro Bono Counsel Tiffany M. Graves. “Congratulations to all of our Nashville attorneys who contributed their time to pro bono service and helped the firm earn this important award.”
The LAS is a non-profit organization committed to enforcing, advancing and defending the legal rights of low income and vulnerable people to help them obtain the basic necessities of life. The organization believes that all citizens are due equal representation under the law and provides resources for individuals in all 48 Tennessee counties through its Volunteer Lawyers Program.
Bradley’s Pro Bono program helps address the unmet legal needs of indigent individuals and charitable organizations. Attorneys from across the firm’s offices devote a significant amount of time each year to pro bono work, representing individuals in matters ranging from death penalty and human rights cases to intellectual property work for low-income inventors, artists and entertainers.
