Meridian Law Supports Local Mothers at Charity Gala

Meridian Law was proud to be a sponsor of “Night for Newborns,” a gala supporting Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee. Nurses for Newborns is a non-profit that provides a safety net for at-risk families to help prevent infant mortality and child abuse and neglect by providing in-home nursing visits, which promote healthcare, education, and positive parenting skills. Rob Martin, an attorney at Meridian Law, serves on the organization’s Tennessee Advisory Board.  (NFN Board pictured below)

Meridian Law Attorney Rob Martin Speaks with Teens about the Constitution

Robert D. Martin, an attorney at Meridian Law, spoke to a group of high school students from across the state about their rights under the Constitution of the State of Tennessee.

Each summer, Lipscomb University in Nashville hosts several high school students in a week-long “Law Camp” that exposes students to various aspects of the legal profession. As part of Law Camp, members of the Tennessee Bar Association’s Public Education Committee volunteer to teach various topics of interest.

Rob’s class, “State v. Federal Rights” focused on understanding the differences between the state and federal constitutions and how those differences affect the civil liberties of Tennesseans. Students compared and contrasted the Bill of Rights with the Tennessee Declaration of Rights and discussed what they perceived as strengths and weaknesses in the State Constitution.

Proud Sponsor of Our Kids' Baseball Teams

There was a post on social media recently that said, “Support small businesses. Amazon won’t sponsor your kids’ baseball teams.” Meridian has grown a lot over the past (nearly) five years, but we’re still a small business, and we’re still proud to support our community and our kids’ baseball teams. This past spring, Meridian was a proud sponsor of Tom Shumate’s nephew’s baseball team, the Springfield High School Yellow Jackets, and we’re even more proud of the fact that they never gave up!

Meridian Law Attorneys Golf for Great Cause

Meridian Law attorneys, Tom Shumate and Miles Martindale, participated in the 2019 Lou Graham Golf Tournament at Gaylord Springs. Meridian Law was also the t-shirt sponsor for the event, which supports tuition assistance at Father Ryan High School. Thanks in large part to Miles’ efforts - who also won the award for closest to the pin - and Tom’s three well-timed putts, Team Meridian had a good showing. But the highlight of the day was getting to meet 1975 U.S. Open Champion, Lou Graham. You won’t meet a nicer or more humble man than Mr. Graham.

2019 NBA Trivia Night

Team Meridian was one question away from taking home the hardware but fumbled the “Super Bowl” round question on which NFL team was the first to win five Super Bowls. We guessed the Steelers (which is admirable since that’s our Managing Partner’s favorite team), but it was the 49’ers. (sigh) While it was tough to lose on a sports question…about football…we enjoyed some great food and drink and had fun catching up with other members of the Bar!
