Tom’s Story: A Tragic Beginning with a Happy Ending

Without any warning, the world as he knew it ended for a local high school student we will call, “Tom.” Tom’s mother died suddenly and unexpectedly. Before he could even begin mourning her death, Tom’s step-father threw him out of the house. With no relatives to turn to, Tom was homeless and penniless. To read more, click HERE

Legal Aid Created 13,360 Happy Endings Last Year

Tom and his story are not unique. Like Tom, thousands of the 315,000 East Tennesseans who live in poverty face problems that could be solved if only they could afford to hire a lawyer. Legal Aid is in the business of solving those problems — and delivering happy endings — at no cost to the “Toms” in the 26 counties Legal Aid serves. Last year, Legal Aid’s team of 29 lawyers, 19 paralegals, and support staff solved 6,459 legal problems for over 13,000 people.
