NASHVILLE: Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennessee’s largest non-profit law firm, has announced the hiring of Emma Sholl as an attorney in its Clarksville office.

Prior to her work there, she held legal internships and fellowships with several non-profit organizations, including Children at Risk in Houston, Texas; Southeast Lousianna Legal Services in New Orleans and The Legal Aid Society of Mid-New York in Utica, New York.

In her new role, Sholl will provide legal counsel and assistance for a range of civil legal issues, including health care, housing and family issues.
