The Daily Report
A group of 72 Nelson Mullins attorneys in the Atlanta office were spotlighted in The Daily Report for leading the donations effort for the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation's (AVLF) annual campaign. AVLF will honor donors who have given over $350 with a wine-tasting event at the Biltmore Ballroom.
The campaign is AVLF's main fundraising event, and funds will be used to support its pro bono operations. Some programs AVLF runs include the Safe Families Office for victims of domestic violence; the Eviction Defense Program; and the Standing With Our Neighbors project, which helps students with landlord-tenant problems that have negative impacts on their day-to-day lives.
According to Marty Ellin, AVLF's executive director, 72 of the 270 lawyers who donated to the campaign are from Nelson Mullins. "Watching the numbers come in over the course of the last few months has been like watching the Major League home run chase years ago," Ellin said. "The Firm passed 20, then 40, then Babe Ruth's 60, then Sammy Sosa's 66 and are this close to the mythical Barry Bonds 73. Knowing this firm, they will get there!!"
