The Atlanta Legal Aid Society has represented Atlanta's poor in civil legal cases since 1924. Our work helps our clients deal with some of life's most basic needs -- a safe home, enough food to eat, a decent education, protection against fraud, and personal safety. Our clients come from Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett Counties in Georgia.
C. Talley Wells, Director of our Disability Integration Project, won the 2014 Justice Robert Benham Award for Community Service.
The award was created in recognition of The Honorable Robert Benham who, during his term as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia from 1995-2001, focused the attention of lawyers and judges on the community and public service aspects of professionalism.
"It was quite an honor to receive one of the Justice Robert Benham Community Service Awards," said Talley. "I deeply admire Justice Benham's commitment to the bar and the community, not to mention the fact that he is an Atlanta Legal Aid Society alumnus!"
