Miles Mediation Tours Atlanta Legal Aid
We recently met with Atlanta Legal Aid Society’s Executive Director, Steven Gottlieb, who gave us a tour of the organization’s new headquarters. ALAS relocated to 54 Ellis Street NE in Atlanta. If you haven’t had a chance to see the new facility, you should pay a visit.
In 2015, ALAS oversaw 24,631 cases and served over 50,000 people within five counties: Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb, Gwinnett and Clayton. The organization handles cases in Family Law, Domestic Violence, Housing, Healthcare, Employment, Consumer, Education, Juvenile and Individual Rights.
Here are some impressive stats from completed cases in 2015:
$1.5 million+ in child support ordered
991 adults and children protected from violence
1104 provided stability through adoption, visitation, custody, etc.
$220,785 in special education services secured
This is just a snapshot of the favorable outcomes ALAS produces every year. We are fortunate to have a connection with ALAS through Miles mediator, Lynn Roberson, who is an avid supporter of the organization.
