Community Impact Is Critical to Chambliss Associate Isiah Robinson and His Developing Legal Practice
The Hamilton Country Herald recently published “Robinson’s Dilemma: Where to Address Growing Need,” an article highlighting associate Isiah Robinson‘s pull toward giving back to the community and how it inspired his career decisions. Dedicating much of his time to serving others led him to the legal industry, where he has the opportunity to help clients from beginning to end.
Growing up, Isiah spent his summers helping serve meals to children in need in the community. This meaningful work motivated him to pursue a meaningful career and to continue volunteering in his hometown of South Pittsburg and now Chattanooga, where he currently resides.
Isiah was guided to his current position by several notable professionals.
Here’s a snapshot from the article:
Robinson’s father helped to open a door to the law when he introduced his son to attorney Bill Killian. Although Killian would go on to become the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, at the time, he had a small practice in nearby Jasper, and he offered Robinson an internship.
…Robinson secured an internship with Chambliss Bahner through his work study supervisor at Sewanee, Donna Pierce, a former attorney with the firm and a past president of the Chattanooga Bar Association.
Robinson worked with the firm’s litigation section. Although it was a good experience, he says, it didn’t convince him to attend law school, so he secured a job with Scott DesJarlais, the U.S. representative for Tennessee’s 4th Congressional District.
