Faith Held

Law Clerk
  • Profile

Faith Held grew up in Knoxville and graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2018, earning her B.A. in political science and a minor in journalism. After graduating, she worked in talk radio as a news anchor. She joined Held Law Firm as the Outreach Coordinator helping clients find mental health services, housing, and public assistance programs.

During this time, she designed and implemented projects aimed at helping Knoxville’s children and LGBTQ+ community. Faith’s work on Held Law Firm’s Literacy Project served a unique community.

Working with community partners such as Union Avenue Books and Knox County’s Richard L. Bean Juvenile Service Center, Faith promoted lifelong literary habits to the kids in the Juvenile Service Center. Faith says “I gained much appreciation and respect for the number of Knoxville folks who stepped up with book and monetary donations to Knox County’s juvenile detention center. I got an up close and personal view of the power our community has when we come together to accomplish a goal, and it was meaningful to witness.”

She eventually shifted into the firm’s paralegal position, and from there decided to attend law school at Lincoln Memorial University.

Faith’s experience while in law school is diverse:

  • interned for Juvenile Court Magistrate Robin Gunn, and the Department of Children’s Services
  • worked with The Youth Defense Division of Knoxville's Community Law Office, and Knox County Juvenile Court's Foster Care Review Board
  • participated in LMU’s domestic violence and mediation clinics
  • served as President of LMU’s OUTlaw student organization and Vice President of LMU’s Amicus student organization

She will receive her J.D. in May 2023, and plans to work in juvenile defense and Family Law.
