Community Service & Involvement
Making A Lasting Impact On Our Surrounding Communities
Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge is a firm that cares about our community.
We are constantly looking for ways to give back to and build up Nashville
and the surrounding areas.
Our team is proud to play a part in supporting those in need and is always striving
to make an impact far beyond our legal practice. We have participated
in several different events, organizations, and charity functions over
the years. You can review some of the key areas we have invested our time in below.
Bringing a Focus Back on Respect
Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge launched a contest in the fall of 2011
to shed light on what “respect” meant to 5th graders throughout Davidson County. Randall L. Kinnard has credited his
success as a trial lawyer to his commitment to respect every individual
he interacts with. The firm began to discuss ways to get students talking
about what respect means to them and came up with the illustration contest.
“We strongly believed that this contest would be an interesting way
to encourage students to think about the impact that respect can have
within their own lives," Attorney Randy Kinnard said. "We couldn't
have been more pleased with the result - a collection of extremely creative
entries that thoughtfully express the many different meanings of respect."
Since that initial contest in 2011, we have completed ten more contests
in Middle Tennessee. The winners of the contest receive a cash prize,
as well as a cash donation to their schools and their charities of choice.
This contest has been a great way to get the community involved—including
parents, teachers, and students—in bringing respect back to the
forefront of our daily lives.
