Atlanta Legal Aid Society

Atlanta Legal Aid Society helps low-income people meet basic needs through free civil legal services. Founded in 1924 by 17 prominent attorney volunteers, we now have 68 attorneys on staff. During their 90 year history, they have helped to establish the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, coined the term “predatory lending,” pioneered legal services for people with AIDS and Cancer, established the first medical-legal collaborative serving children in the Southeast, and won a landmark Supreme Court case on behalf of people with disabilities.
