Attorneys: Interview potential clients with housing/landlord issues for merit

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: ATLANTA VOLUNTEER LAWYERS FOUNDATION INC

Image_202207010821

Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF) hosts a Saturday Lawyer Program clinic nearly every Saturday of the year. Volunteers can choose to sign up for either an in-person day at our downtown office (the first Saturday clinic of each month) or a virtual day via Zoom (all other Saturdays).

Attorneys meet with potential clients to hear the details of their situation involving housing, landlord, or eviction concerns. Law students and/or paralegals may also assist in the interview to provide additional support to the attorney and client. After the interview, the volunteer attorney will debrief with an AVLF staff attorney to determine if the case has merit, and if the volunteer is able to take on representation (encouraged but not required). AVLF attorneys and paralegals provide hands-on support to volunteer attorneys each step of the way.

Questions? Contact AVLF (volunteer@avlf.org).

Mission Statement

To create safe and stable homes and families by inspiring the fight for equal justice.

Description

Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF) is a nonprofit that believes no one standing up for their rights should have to do it alone. That’s why we stand with, for, and in support of low-income Atlantans as they demand safe and stable housing, insist on fair pay for an honest day’s work, and break free from intimate partner abuse. Our volunteers are deeply committed to helping low-income Atlantans achieve the safety and stability they deserve. You don’t need to be an expert to provide life-changing support to our clients. Often just a simple demand letter can make a world of distance. For full representation in all our programs, we provide in-depth training, a wealth of legal resources, and access to expert staff attorneys who can help you along the way.
