TALS Participates in Marshall County Law Day Celebration

Friday, May 1, 2015 (Lewisburg, TN) - Staff members of the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS) traveled to Lewisburg, Tennessee to participate in the Law Day Celebration at the Marshall County Courthouse. Marshall Bar Association President Jason Davis kicked off the event with opening remarks. Local high school students were awarded prizes for the Law Day Art Contest. Judge Lee Bussart (pictured at right) addressed the purpose of Law Day. Judge Bussart also introduced those in attendance to the Marshall County Help Button, a kiosk where those who cannot afford an attorney can find existing legal resources. A joint-project of the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services and the Marshall County Bar Association, the Help Button is a Marshall County specific introduction to the available civil legal resources in Tennessee. The kiosk is intended to serve those who cannot afford any type of legal representation. TALS Executive Director Ann Pruitt, Operations Director Samantha Sanchez, and Policy/Training Director Anne Fox attended the event. See photos from the event here.
