There are so many reasons why we are proud to work at AVLF, the most obvious of which is our association with our fearless leader, Marty Ellin. Marty is a living example of the fight for justice on behalf of Atlanta’s poorest residents, and he inspires us on a daily basis. We are thrilled to announce that our friends at the Gate City Bar Association feel the same way about Marty – they are inducting him into their Hall of Fame.
