Bourland Heflin, PLC has a proud record of involvement in, and service to, the community. As a result, Bourland Heflin lawyers not only “give back” but also are plugged in as active local leaders. Below are a few examples:

John Heflin has been an active member and leader of the Downtown Memphis Rotary Club for decades, and beginning more recently Jennifer Sneed has been similarly involved with the Midtown Memphis Rotary Club. Both of those local affiliates of Rotary International have an outstanding record of achievement, with programs such as Rotary Readers for pre-K students; Stop Hunger NOW; a clean water initiative in developing countries; assisting the Dorothy Day House of Hospitality (the only local homeless shelter that allows family members to be housed together); the Gift of Life, which supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center; and a project to assist the Vollintine-Evergreen Historic District and its green line.

Both John Heflin, former president of the Memphis Bar Association, and his son Jack Heflin have led highly successful efforts to raise funds for the Campaign for Equal Justice of Memphis Area Legal Services, which is the primary provider of civil legal services for low-income, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised families in Shelby, Fayette, Lauderdale, and Tipton Counties. John was chair of giving for large law firms, and Jack recently served in a similar capacity targeted at young lawyers in large law firms.

Don Bourland previously served as legal counsel for the Mid-South Fair and the Memphis Food Bank. He has also helped lead the Truth Seekers Fellowship and the Memphis Emmaus Community and soon will celebrate his 40th year of teaching adult Sunday school at Christ United Methodist Church.
