AVLF Call for Pro Bono Attorneys

AVLF Call for Pro Bono Attorneys | Help Clear our Backlog

Pro bono attorneys needed! The Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF) helps low-income tenants who are having disputes with their landlords find free legal help. We have a backlog of unplaced cases that we have assessed and found to have merit. We are reaching out to you for help to clear our backlog. No tenant law experience is necessary – AVLF provides you with the case file, access to a library of materials and as much attorney support as you need.

Many of these cases can be resolved with a demand letter and negotiation. We provide sample demand letters. If you have 5-10 hours to donate, you can make a significant difference in the life of a vulnerable client. A typical case might involve helping a tenant get repairs that the landlord is legally required to make, or helping get a security deposit back.

For more information or to review available cases, contact Cole Thaler [ mailto:cthaler@avlf.org?subject=Re ] , Safe & Stable Homes Project Director, via the link when you click his name, or at 678-681-6007.
