Calling All Lawyers

Make A Pro Bono Promise

The State Bar of Georgia is asking that all Georgia lawyers take a little time this season of giving to think about how pro bono can be incorporated into everyday practice. There are many ways lawyers can help people who desperately need it! Visit the Pro Bono Opportunities Guide to find the right fit for you.

Share your promise by posting a 30-second video on Twitter with #probonopromise, and @StateBarofGA and @ProBonoGA. Need to know how to get started on Twitter? Go here. Or simply email the video, and the State Bar will post it for you.

Run For Justice 2014

2014 Run For Justice

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."

Thank you to our sponsors for making this possible. A special thank you to the Atlanta Association of Legal Administrators for support and volunteers and Royal Cup Coffee for keeping us warm!

Atlanta Legal Aid Society

The Many Faces of Atlanta Legal Aid

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.
