Jake Perry has been honored by the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission as a 2018 Attorney for Justice. The award recognizes Perry’s dedication to pro bono service, the legal profession and the citizens of Tennessee in 2017.
The Tennessee Supreme Court has honored Attorneys and Law Students for Justice for the past five years. The extensive recognition program is part of a dedicated effort to increase the number of pro bono service providers, helping those who cannot afford legal representation and aiming to increase statewide pro bono work to 50 percent participation. Attorneys providing at least 50 hours of service annually are recognized. Honorees receive a signed certificate of recognition bearing the Attorney for Justice seal and are listed under the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Pro Bono Honor Roll.
Perry and his fellow 2018 Attorney for Justice honorees were recognized at a regional recognition ceremony in Nashville, Monday, October 8, at the Belmont College of Law.
