About Us

GeorgiaLegalAid.org is a joint project of Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc. and the Georgia Legal Services Program. The project is powered by Pro Bono Net, funded by Legal Services Corporation and the Georgia Access to Justice Project and produced in cooperation with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government and legal service organizations and government agencies throughout Georgia and the United States. An additional grant from the State Justice Institute, awarded to the Georgia Administrative Office of the Courts, is making it possible for us to evaluate the web site. Our goal is to provide the public with easy Internet access to basic legal information and legal resources in Georgia.
 
Atlanta Legal Aid Society
The Atlanta Legal Aid Society has represented Atlanta's poor in civil legal cases since 1924.   Our work helps our clients deal with some of life's most basic needs -- a safe home, enough food to eat, a decent education, protection against fraud, and personal safety.  Our clients come from Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett Counties in Georgia.
 
Georgia Legal Services Program
Georgia Legal Services Program®, an independent, non-profit organization, provides free legal services to low-income people in civil matters in the 154 Georgia counties outside the 5 county Atlanta metropolitan area.  The mission of the Georgia Legal Services Program is to provide access to justice and opportunities out of poverty for Georgians with low-incomes.  Our lawyers and paralegals provide the help that reflects your community's values of fairness, equality, and responsibility to assist others in need.
