About Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc.

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 our 90 year history, we 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.

Our mission is “to deliver legal services and legal education designed to improve the social, political, and economic conditions of low-income persons; to serve as a catalyst for social change to benefit low-income persons; to prepare and furnish information to low-income persons about their rights so as to provide full benefit, enjoyment, and protection of their legal, economic, and social rights.”
