In addition to being one of the founders of Ortale Kelley, David Herbert was also one of the nine founders of The Tennessee Justice Center. All nine founders of the TJC were Trustees of the Tennessee Bar Foundation. Mr. Herbert was honored, along with the other eight founders, on November 12, 2015, during the TJC’s 20 Year Celebration held at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum.
For two decades TJC has been using the law to transform lives. This would not have been possible without those nine honorees and all the many volunteers. New restrictions on legal service organizations disconnected some of the most vulnerable in the nation from the lawyers who could help them. For hardworking Tennesseans, a lawyer can be the difference between life and death, between hope and despair, and between opportunity and life-crushing debts. The TJC has helped over 1.3 million Tennesseans get access to the care they need. TJC is hoping to continue its life-saving work for another 20 years.
