Knoxville Bar Association Offers Online Legal Information during the COVID-19 Pandemic
For Immediate Release
Contact: Marsha Watson, KBA Executive Director or Tracy Chain, Lawyer Referral & Information Service Administrator
The Knoxville Bar Association has established and is regularly updating a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources page on its public website, www.TNLawyerFinder.org.
In accordance with guidelines from the CDC, Governor Bill Lee, the Knox County Health Department, and local governmental bodies, all legal advice clinics previously scheduled for the months of April and May have been cancelled. Going forward, as circumstances permit, rescheduled clinics will be posted on the Upcoming Legal Clinics page of the Knoxville Bar Association’s website, and updated information will be communicated at that time.
In the meantime, individuals with legal questions are encouraged to visit the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources page at www.TNLawyerFinder.org.
We know that members of the public rely on quality access to appropriate legal services, especially at this time. The Knoxville Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) offers experience, integrity, and a commitment to public service. COVID-19 has caused additional needs in the areas of contract disputes, employment, insurance, housing, court accessibility, estate/probate, medical accessibility, and business, just to name a few. As always, our team remains available by telephone and online request.
Many legal services can be handled remotely. We encourage members of the public who use our service during this time to connect with referred attorneys by telephone and electronically, and encourage our participating attorneys to do the same.
The Knoxville Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service may be reached online at www.TNLawyerFinder.org or by telephone at (865)522-7501 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
