To: Parker Stephens & Laura Seidel, Ballard Spahr
From: The Drake House

Words cannot express how grateful we are to both of you for all of your diligence on the purchase of the Roswell Oaks apartment complex. By doubling our capacity we can further stabilize our graduate families by offering extended programming in these additional sixteen units, while maintaining our original units for crisis housing. With the continued decline in affordable housing in the North Fulton area, we will be well positioned for community support of this measure to assist additional local families.

To: Jennifer Goldstein & Rick McMurtry from Turner Broadcasting and Ty Lord from Kilpatrick Townsend
From: Enchanted Closet

We’ve had several entities across the country to infringe on or attempt to infringe on our trademark; at least five that had pages on Facebook and other social media sites. Because of the work of Rick, Jennifer, and Ty Lord, we had the proper documentation to protect our brand, and eliminate any liability that the organization may have potentially faced from other entities portraying an affiliation with us. Without the support of Pro Bono Partnership, we would not have been able to obtain the assistance of such diligent attorneys. Thank you so much!

To: Andrew Stulce, Hunton & Williams
From: Advocates for Children

Andrew provided us with a wonderful template for board policies and procedures, missing only information that I needed to provide. We’ve finished that work on our end just this week and will distribute the new policies at our board meeting and retreat on January 21. I am incredibly grateful for your support and for this wonderful new resource, Andrew. I know our trustees will be very pleased to see such a comprehensive document to guide them in their board role.

To: Suzanne Russo & Gloria Robinson, The Home Depot

On behalf of GLISI, I would like to thank you for your patience and guidance as we worked to negotiate the best possible agreement. Our team is excited about the move and optimistic about the potential effects of the shift in the workplace environment.

You and Suzanne were invaluable throughout the entire process, balancing candor with support and encouragement. Because of you, GLISI is even better positioned to achieve our mission of developing world-class education leaders who advance student achievement and organizational effectiveness.
