On Friday, September 20, 2019, attorney Jerry Summers was recognized as a 2019 Attorney for Justice by Justice Roger A. Page on behalf of the Tennessee Supreme Court for providing pro bono legal representation (legal work undertaken voluntarily and without payment) in Tennessee for individuals that could not afford the services of an attorney.
Said program is one created by the five Justices to encourage attorneys to participate in legal philanthropy to assist the citizens of the State of Tennessee. Said ceremony was part of a program of Community Justice presented by the Legal Aid of East Tennessee and the Chattanooga Bar Association.
The Certificate of Recognition allows Summers, Rufolo & Rodgers to display the Attorney for Justice seal on the law firms website, letterhead, resume, and other promotion or marketing materials.
Said honor doesn’t require our firm to buy a plaque, piece of glassware, or get any fellow attorneys to write a recommendation to get us included in one of the 1,200 “Best of the _____?_______” money making entities now in existence after 1977 in the news media.
I encourage you to buy local products and hire local, reputable attorneys!
