The Many Faces of Atlanta Legal Aid

Atlanta Legal Aid Society began as the dream of a young lawyer named E. Smythe Gambrell, who had the idea that he could found an organization that would help returning World War I veterans victimized by salary buying/payday lending scams and desperate women with family issues.

Ninety years later, Atlanta Legal Aid continues to provide vigorous and innovative advocacy that changes laws and empowers clients in Fulton, Clayton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Cobb counties.

The support of the legal community for Atlanta Legal Aid has been constant throughout its history. Lawyers built and sustained Legal Aid, and make it possible to serve nearly 25,000 clients each year.
