NASHVILLE, Tenn. June 2, 2016 – Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennessee’s largest non-profit law firm, announced today that a new community outreach advocate and foreclosure paralegal has been added to the firm.
Tabitha Faulconer has joined Legal Aid Society as a community outreach advocate and foreclosure paralegal and will be serving the attorneys in its Clarksville, Columbia and Gallatin offices. She will work out of the Nashville office.
Faulconer is a 2014 graduate of Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky with a double major in Criminal Justice and Psychology.
