Under Lawrence and Carolyne’s leadership, the Legal Division will partner with several organizations on various pro bono and community service projects this year, including Page Turners Make Great Learners, Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network, Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, and Habitat For Humanity.
