NASHVILLE (AP) – The Tennessee Bar Association is recruiting attorneys to assist Tennessee's troops and veterans.

According to a news release from the bar, the law protects those on active duty from lease terminations, mortgage actions and liens, and it provides a reprieve from pending trials. Lawyers are needed to help families take advantage of these protections.

In addition, the more than 37,000 Tennesseans currently deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan will be returning home over the next 17 months. Some will face legal issues such as foreclosure, bankruptcy, divorce and child custody. Others will face challenges with jobs and stress.

Lawyers are needed for legal clinics, pro bono representation and speaking at military events, among other things.
