Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta volunteers provided more than $2.3 million worth of legal services to Atlanta nonprofits last year. The time and talents of our attorney volunteers make a big difference to the nonprofits they serve. Below are some “shout outs” to our volunteers from their appreciative nonprofit clients:

To: Elizabeth Weller of Turner Entertainment Networks
From: Living Water for Girls
“Thank you so much for connecting Living Water for Girls with Turner Broadcasting. I met with a Liz Weller, Vice President/Deputy General Counsel at Turner Entertainment Networks on this past Saturday, and of course, this would not have been possible without your assistance. She is brilliant and offered sound guidance for our future endeavors.”

To: Jarrod Loadholt of Troutman Sanders
From: Carroll County Family Connection
“I can’t tell you how wonderful Jarrod has been. He was quick to check the documents as I completed them and was always available to take my calls. He is an incredible attorney and he made this process so easy. Thank you for making this possible for our organization.”

To: Laura Bogan of The Home Depot
From: Margot Swann of Visions Anew Institute
“I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for the time and effort you put into advising us about employee status. Knowing when to classify employees and/or volunteers as exempt or non-exempt is very helpful. I understand you had to do a good bit of research in order to advise us.”

To: Andrew Morris of Sutherland
From: PEDS
“On behalf of PEDS, I want to express our appreciation to Pro Bono Partnership for connecting us to Andrew Morris. Andrew has been a terrific help to us. His help drafting agreements is enabling us to expand our capacity and resources dramatically.”

To: Judy Powell and Tywanda Lord of Kilpatrick Stockton and Jill Warner of McRae Brooks Warner
From: The Atlanta Women’s Foundation
“Words are not adequate to express how much we appreciate your assistance with our efforts to trademark two of our Community Initiative Programs. We are so grateful to you for rolling up your sleeves and giving your legal efforts to this matter.”
