Good evening. My name is Michael Lucas and I have the privilege of being the Deputy Director of the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation. Our Safe Families Office is the place where AVLF – through our volunteers – literally saves lives. By watching – and getting more involved in – the amazing work that we do in that program over my seven years at AVLF, I have learned a lot about intimate partner violence. I have learned that it touches everyone.
In the first 120 days of Standing with Our Neighbors, more than 100 volunteers have contributed to this innovative initiative.
The Fourth Annual AVLF PurSHOEing Justice, which is presented by Esquire Deposition Solutions and benefits AVLF’s Safe Families Office, will feature a giant silent auction, exciting vendors, excellent food and drink, and a dynamic guest of honor.
Little did I know when I began volunteering with the AVLF Saturday Lawyer Program seven years ago that AVLF would become such a meaningful part of my life. (Written by guest blogger and AVLF volunteer attorney Raj Shah.)
Ha Pham has been volunteering at AVLF for the past several weeks. Not only has she been tremendously helpful to to Cole Thaler and the Saturday Lawyer Program, she’s made a huge impact on the lives of our clients – and she learned something about herself in the process.
Quick snapshot: Christin Camp Lumpkin. I graduated from Samford University in 1997 with a BA in English Literature, and Vanderbilt Law School in 2000 where I served as the Senior Notes Editor for the Vanderbilt Law Review. I started my career on the Corporate team at King & Spalding. After a little over five years at King & Spalding, I left to join the legal department at Global Payments Inc., which is a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services.
