Free Legal Clinics Offered Throughout Month Of April


 

The Tennessee Supreme Court has designated April as the third annual HELP4TN Days, a time dedicated to bringing free legal resources to Tennesseans in need. Throughout the month of April, more than 100 free legal clinics will be held throughout the state, and online and phone-based legal services will be offered to residents who cannot make it to a legal clinic.

"The legal system can be confusing and intimidating to many," Chief Justice Jeff Bivins said. "The goal of the Court's Access to Justice Initiative is to help Tennesseans get the legal assistance they need when and where they need it."

The best place to start when looking for legal resources is help4tn.org or by calling (844) HELP4TN. Both options can link Tennesseans to dozens of legal resources.

Contrary to popular belief, individuals do not have the right to an attorney in most civil legal actions, including evictions, debt collection, family law matters including domestic violence, expungements, employment issues, and other civil legal problems. Federal data shows that 71 percent of low-income households experienced at least one civil legal problem last year and 70 percent of those households said the issue significantly impacted their lives.
