Volunteer for AVLF's Saturday Lawyer Program

14


December 14, 2019

8:45am - 12:30pm

Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation
235 Peachtree St. NE, Suite 1750
Atlanta, GA 30303

Consider giving 3.75 hours of your time to the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation on Saturday, Dec. 14, from 8:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Doing what, you say? Conducting intake interviews with low-income tenants facing landlord-tenant issues who need legal assistance through AVLF’s Saturday Lawyer Program. Dec. 14 is the YLD’s sponsorship day, and we are looking for at least four volunteer attorneys to interview tenants. We can, of course, welcome more than four volunteers.

No prior training is required, and no experience with landlord-tenant issues or cases is required. While volunteer attorneys may have the option to represent a tenant after Saturday, it is not necessary, and volunteer attorneys can determine the scope of any representation they choose to accept. Even if your employer prohibits you from representing clients, you can still volunteer on Saturday.

Please RSVP to Andrew Navratil by Tuesday, Dec. 10. Thanks in advance for your service!
