June 12, 2017
Legal Aid of East Tennessee honored Miller & Martin Attorney Marcy Eason with the Chief Justice William M. Barker Access to Justice Award at the organization’s annual Pro Bono Night reception on June 9, 2017. Marcy accepted the award amongst a standing ovation.
“The award honors someone who has helped further the cause of access to justice for those who cannot afford civil legal services,” said Paige Evatt, Legal Aid of East Tennessee’s Pro Bono Project Director and Staff Attorney. “Personally, I can't think of anyone more deserving than Marcy.”
Ms. Eason serves as the chair of the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission and recently announced in Chattanooga the statewide kickoff of the Access to Justice Initiative, which promotes Tennesseans receiving free legal advice through free legal clinics and educational events.
