Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta (PBPA) connects volunteer attorneys with Georgia nonprofits in need of business legal services. PBPA clients are nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations that serve the poor and disadvantaged. These organizations cannot afford to pay for legal services without significant impairment of their program budget. Through the support of PBPA’s volunteer network, nonprofit clients are stronger and better able to serve the underserved.
Since opening its doors in 2005, PBPA has assigned and supported over 2,000 volunteer lawyers in aiding over 750 nonprofit clients. In 2014 alone, PBPA coordinated free legal services valued at approximately $3.6 million for 202 greater Atlanta-area nonprofits – that means for every $100 donated to PBPA, nonprofit organizations received over $850 worth of free legal services!
PBPA is the only organization in Georgia focused on providing transactional attorneys with pro bono opportunities in their area of expertise. Volunteer attorneys benefit by broadening their knowledge of the community and by having the chance to be part of the positive change nonprofits are making in the greater Atlanta area.
Investing in PBPA leads to a stronger nonprofit community serving underserved populations in the Atlanta area – which benefits our entire community.
