Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta strengthens our community by engaging volunteer attorneys to provide nonprofits with business legal services.
Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta unlocks the power of pro bono services, enabling nonprofits to thrive and transactional attorneys to have meaningful pro bono experiences.
What We Do
We assist 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organizations that serve low-income or disadvantaged individuals and are unable to pay for legal services. Our clients work to improve the lives of the homeless, domestic violence survivors, at-risk youth, senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and other groups in need.
How We Do It
We match eligible organizations with volunteer attorneys from the leading corporations and law firms in Atlanta. Our staff screens the nonprofits and identifies their legal needs, then matches eligible clients with attorneys who have the appropriate expertise.
Our volunteer attorneys assist nonprofits with business legal matters in areas including:
- Corporate Governance
- Contracts and Leases
- Trademarks & Copyrights
- Tax Compliance nonprofit organizations by our volunteer attorneys were valued at over $4.5 million.
