OAK RIDGE, Tenn. June 29, 2016 – Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennessee’s largest non-profit law firm, has relocated its Oak Ridge office from 226 Broadway Ave. to Suite 201 in Victory Centre—575 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
The new 3,590-square-foot office’s location is convenient for clients and guests. The space also meets Legal Aid Society’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 non-profit law firm’s 48-county service area.
“We are fortunate to have found an office that is so easily accessible to our clients and the public—plus the amount of space and the amenities allow our office to be both inviting and functional,” said Janet Mynatt, managing attorney of Legal Aid Society’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. All phone numbers to Legal Aid Society’s Oak Ridge office remain unchanged.
Seven Legal Aid Society employees currently work at the new space, providing free legal assistance to low-income individuals in Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Morgan, Roane, Scott and Union counties. Legal Aid Society’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.
