Thank you for visiting the
From Chad Shultz, Vice President of our Board of Directors and Chair of the Cocktails and Connections Committee:
Thank you to all who contributed to the success of Cocktails & Connections 2015. We had a great night of networking and we raised some money for Legal Aid. We realize that we are in a unique position to broker conversations between our business partners (sponsors), Atlanta's corporations (through the legal department), and Atlanta's lawyers. All three stakeholders benefit from those conversations, and ultimately, Legal Aid is a winner too. We saw those conversations taking place last night and we know they will continue. We are already starting the planning for Cocktails & Connections 2016. It will be even bigger and better!
Shake It Up For HeLP
About 200 people gathered for the beautiful weather on the deck of Nelson, Mullins, Riley and Scarborough on April 30 to support the Health Law Partnership (HeLP). It was a terrific showing of support and greatly appreciated by HeLP’s partners. The money raised will help support our evaluation efforts, in addition to ongoing operating expenses. We hope that everyone enjoyed themselves!

The 90th Anniversary of
Atlanta Legal Aid Society began as the dream of a young lawyer named E. Smythe Gambrell, who had the idea that he could found an organization that would help returning World War I veterans victimized by salary buying/payday lending scams and desperate women with family issues.
Ninety years later, Atlanta Legal Aid continues to provide vigorous and innovative advocacy that changes laws and empowers clients in Fulton, Clayton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Cobb counties.
The support of the legal community for Atlanta Legal Aid has been constant throughout its history. Lawyers built and sustained Legal Aid, and make it possible to serve nearly 25,000 clients each year.
Run For Justice 2014
It was a sunny and crisp day in the beautiful Oakhurst neighborhood, perfect for the thousand plus people who ran or walked for justice. THANKS to all who participated!
"The Run is always a lot of fun for us. There are many Legal Aid friends and supporters who come every year - it's like a family reunion," said Executive Director, Steve Gottlieb. "And I can't say enough how grateful we are for the money we were able to raise for our general operating fund. We promise to make good use of this generosity."
