The Rutherford/Cannon County Bar Association “has reached out to our student veterans and their military families in order to address their current legal needs in a gracious pro bono fashion,” said Keith M. Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives for the university.

“This group of patriotic lawyers, several who are veterans themselves, has taken their time to research the specific needs of our veterans and will provide a tailored team to specifically address these identified issues,” Huber, who retired as a lieutenant general from the U.S. Army after nearly 40 years of service, added.

“I personally appreciate and respect this clear demonstration of community commitment for our veterans by this group of professional leaders.”

The inaugural biannual clinic is sponsored by the bar association and the veterans center.
