Congratulations to Tony Seaton, Tri-Cities Pro Bono Hall of Fame

Seatonprobonoaward.jpegLegal Aid of East Tennessee (LAET) hosted its annual Tri-Cities Celebration of Pro Bono Service on Thursday, August 23 at the Tipton Haynes historical site in Johnson City. The event celebrates Upper East Tennessee attorneys who participate in LAET's Pro Bono Project by donating their time and skill to provide civil legal services. Special awards were given for "Access to Justice," "Excellence in Pro Bono" and "Above & Beyond."

This year, the celebration included the induction of the inaugural member of the Tri-Cities Pro Bono Hall of Fame. That inaugural member was Tony Seaton of the Law Offices of Seaton & Bates, PLLC. Moreover, the hall of fame itself will be named the Seaton Hall of Fame in Tony's honor.

Tony is a sixth generation Upper East Tennessean who has been practicing law in the area for nearly 40 years. He is a board-certified specialist in Civil Trial Practice and spends hundreds of hours each year developing state-of-the-art trial skills through the Keenan Trial Institute. He also serves as a faculty member and co-dean (Deposition College) of the Keenan Trial Institute.

Between 2012 and 2018, Tony served on the Tennessee Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission and traveled across the state to recruit lawyers to start free legal advice clinics in most of the state's judicial districts. He has won a number of awards for his pro bono service through LAET.

We are so proud of Tony and his accomplishments with Legal Aid of East Tennessee. Please join us in congratulating him.
