Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennesseeâ€™s largest nonprofit law firm, has relocated its Oak Ridge office. The office has moved from 226 Broadway Avenue to Suite 201 in Victory Centre at 575 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
The new 3,590-square-foot officeâ€™s location is convenient for clients and guests, a press release said. The space also meets Legal Aid Societyâ€™s growing tech infrastructure needs: The firm recently began deploying video conferencing technology, which it will use to better connect with other staff members, volunteer attorneys, and clients across the nonprofit law firmâ€™s 48-county service area.
â€œWe are fortunate to have found an office that is so easily accessible to our clients and the publicâ€”plus the amount of space and the amenities allow our office to be both inviting and functional,â€ said Janet Mynatt, managing attorney of Legal Aid Societyâ€™s Oak Ridge office.
Attorneys and staff have already made the transition to the new office and have begun working out of the new location, the press release said. All phone numbers to Legal Aid Societyâ€™s Oak Ridge office remain unchanged.
Seven Legal Aid Society employees currently work at the new space, providing free legal assistance to low-income people in Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Morgan, Roane, Scott, and Union counties. Legal Aid Societyâ€™s Oak Ridge office is also home to the Tennessee Taxpayer Project, a low-income taxpayer clinic that offers free legal help to people with tax problems.
Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands advocates for fairness and justice under the law. The nonprofit law firm offers free civil legal representation and educational programs to help people in its region receive justice, protect their well-being, and support opportunities to overcome poverty. It serves 48 counties from offices in Clarksville, Columbia, Cookeville, Gallatin, Murfreesboro, Nashville, Oak Ridge, and Tullahoma. Legal Aid Society is funded in part by United Way.
