DRT Pro Bono Attorney Recognized for Service
DRT pro bono attorney, Keith Hodges, has been recognized in the latest issue of the Tennessee Bar Journal for his work on behalf of Tennesseans with disabilities and more. Keith is named among several 'pro bono heroes' who volunteer their time and expertise in law. Keith is a valuable member of the DRT team and we are thrilled to have him receive this recognition. The following is an exceprt from the article.
"Keith Hodges is an active volunteer with Disability Rights Tennessee, taking on a variety of projects that help protect the rights of persons with disabilities. Keith assisted in research and drafting federal complaints to ensure that deaf patients get sign language interpreters in medical settings, and he has met with deaf clients in rural areas. Keith lives in Nashville and retired from state government in 2016."
"I do pro bono becuase I like it, I have the time to do it and there are many people who need help that are far less fortunate than I am. My biggest pro bono challenge, and part of the satisfaction of doing pro bono work, is taking on cases in areas of the law I know nothing about." Keith has also volunteered with Tennessee Justice Center, providing support with TennCare appeals."
