Please visit the new page to apply.
Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF) seeks volunteer attorneys to assist with its Housing Court Assistance Center (HCAC) program.
HCAC is a walk-in advice clinic for Atlanta tenants whose landlords are taking them to court. Located in the Fulton County Courthouse, tenants can get immediate advice about the eviction process (which in Georgia is known as a dispossessory). With the help of an AVLF staff attorney, volunteer attorneys and law students/paralegals meet with tenants onsite to explain their rights under Georgia law. From limited advice on completing an Answer to pre- and post-litigation advice, HCAC provides tenants with the knowledge and resources they need to advocate for themselves throughout the eviction process.

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