New Lawyers Division

It's that time of year again! Help our New Lawyers Division as they partner with the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services for the annual Secret Santa Program! Each year, this program, in conjunction with famed Atlantan Clark Howard, brings the joy of the holidays to the more than 9,000 children in Georgia's foster care system through the generosity of their donors.

Last year, GTLA sponsored 136 children through YOUR kind donations, but this year, we want to do even more! Our goal for 2019 is to sponsor 200 children--will you help us? Follow the link below to sign-up and make a child's holiday dreams come true today!

The process is easy: 
1. Sign-up at the link below by WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30TH
2. After all sign-ups are in and we have received names from DFCS, you will be assigned a child/the number of children and the gifts they are requesting
(each child requests 3 gifts totally no more than $150)
3. Gifts will need to be sent/delivered to the Beasley Allen Atlanta Office by the last week of November (we will get an exact date when we get the list of names)

Civil Justice PAC

We are closing in on the end of 2019, which means that the 2020 Legislative Session is just around the corner. Our leadership and legislative team has been hard at work over the Summer building and strengthening relationships with legislators on both sides of the aisle, but we could not do the work that needs to be done without you.

While we prepare for what is sure to be the most difficult legislative fight we have seen in many years, help us prepare our friends in the legislature as best we can before they are no longer able to fund raise going into the a contentious election cycle. Our issues are won and lost at the hands of our allies, and we must do everything in our power to be supportive of them in every way that we can!

If you have not made your contribution to the Civil Justice PAC for 2019, call Caroline McLean today at (770) 314-4257. Together, we can preserve the Civil Justice System and access to justice for all in the state of Georgia!
