What our Clients Say About Working with PBPA
“Our agency had the pleasure of working with Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta on issues ranging from personnel policies to confidentiality and client intake procedures. The amazing attorneys that so graciously give of their time were a joy to work with and made the process relatively painless! Sometimes this work can be intimidating and I appreciate the expertise and thoroughness that everyone through PBPA– -staff and volunteer attorneys– -brought to the table.”
– Amy N. Weaver, Executive Director, Hospitality House for Women, Inc.
“We participated last fall in our 2nd Legal-Check Up and are currently working through a few followup items. The staff and I read the articles published in the Pro Bono newsletter, and we attend events and webinars. Last year, I assigned pieces of the handout from the ‘Top Ten Legal Issues Non-profits Face’ to members of the staff, and we spent several months reviewing as part of our staff meetings. This year, we are working as a team on data security from one of the articles published earlier this year. I do not lose sleep worrying about legal issues because I know our organization is in great hands.”
– Nancy Staub, Executive Director, kidz2leaders, inc.
