Coffee County court filled its first judicial juvenile referee, Stacy L. Lynch, an attorney with the Hull, Ray, Rieder, Ewell, Lane and Lynch law firm, Monday at the Justice Center in Judge Brock’s Courtroom.
“I am excited to embark on this new adventure,” Lynch told family, coworkers and friends gathered for the event.
“I totally believe in the difference family courts can make,” she said.
Director of Drug Court Mike Lewis called the position a “significant addition to the treatment courts for families in Coffee County.”
He added, “The position is funded through a grant received for the Coffee County Drug Court Foundation from the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts and Tennessee Department of Children’s Services.”
The position would help to keep families together and reunite others separated by the court system.
