Tennessee Supreme Court proposal to allow flat-fee contracting

 The Court is considering an amendment to Tenn. Sup. Ct. R. 13 to provide for an alternative method of compensating attorneys who provide legal services to indigent persons pursuant to the rule. In summary, proposed new Section 7 of the rule would authorize the Administrative Director of the Courts to enter into contracts with attorneys, law firms or associations of attorneys to provide legal services to indigent persons for a fixed fee.
