Pro Bono / Community Service

  • To help families of our military in Iraq and Afghanistan, we started a volunteer lawyer program to provide free legal assistance to military families in Georgia.
  • We have represented widows and families of slain law enforcement officers, to help the families obtain benefits and provide for their future, at no charge to the families.
  • We are “on call” with ministers and other clergy to discuss the legal problems of their church members, at no charge to them.
  • Our attorneys also provide pro bono legal services to various homeless shelters and other non-profit organizations in our community.
  • We help educate and train new lawyers in the community through speaking and writing articles for Continuing Legal Education programs, including programs on trial practice and ethics and professionalism.
  • Our lawyers regularly serve as board members for community organizations.
  • Our lawyers perform volunteer work for community service groups such as Habitat for Humanity, the Young Adult Guidance Center, Hands on Atlanta, and other service organizations.
  • Our firm has also developed a free public education program on preventing fraud against the elderly. This program came about through our experience in representing elderly persons who were being defrauded without their knowledge.
