The Tennessee Bar Association (TBA) recently awarded its 2012 Summer Star of the Quarter Award to Katrina Atchley, an attorney in the Knoxville office of the Lewis, King, Krieg and Waldrop, P.C., law firm.
Atchley was recognized for her work as Chair of the TBA Children’s Issues Committee and her work producing the coloring book CASA Speaks for Polly. As Chair, Atchley coordinated fundraising efforts to print more than 6,000 copies of CASA Speaks for Polly and tirelessly worked to distribute copies to all CASA programs across the state of Tennessee. Tennessee CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and its associated agencies work to improve the lives of abused and neglected children through trained volunteers who advocate for a safe, permanent, loving home. The coloring book explains the juvenile court system and is intended to educate abused and neglected children across the state of Tennessee.
Atchley has served as chair of the Children’s Issues Committee in the Tennessee Bar Association Young Lawyers Division since 2009 and is President-elect of the Knoxville Barristers (the young lawyer division of the Knoxville Bar Association). An active community volunteer, Atchley serves on the Board of Directors for the East Tennessee Kidney Foundation, and is a board member-elect of CASA of East Tennessee.
This is the second time the Sevierville native has been named a TBA Star of the Quarter. She practices in a wide variety of areas including business/commercial and real property litigation; intellectual property; and municipal, general civil and juvenile litigation.
Lewis King was founded in 1960 and today has 57 attorneys in its three offices in Nashville, Knoxville and Sevierville.
