Cornelius & Collins has a long-standing tradition of service and commitment to our community. We believe that every helping hand makes a difference, which is why our civil litigation attorneys and staff consistently volunteer their time and resources to give back and support causes that affect the betterment of our community.

Commitment to Our Community

Our attorneys and staff are involved in a wide range of charitable endeavors each year. We sort food at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to support the fight against hunger, run in the Nashville Bar Association Young Lawyers Division’s Race Judicata, volunteer for the Davidson County High School Mock Trial Competition, sponsor performances of the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra, devote many hours to pro bono projects, and serve on the boards of local non-profit organizations.

From bar associations to educational and religious organizations, we are proud of the positive impact that our attorneys and staff have on our community.
