Epiq is standing with us as we expand our mobile advocacy efforts, recruit and support volunteers, and provide wraparound support to our clients both inside and outside the courtroom.
Since its Winetasting sponsorship in 2017, Epiq has created an enormous impact on AVLF’s ability to promote safe and stable homes and families in Atlanta. Beyond the company’s substantial donations to support our programs, Epiq’s presence is felt very strongly in our attorney volunteer base, our Board of Directors, and our Annual Campaign Steering Committees.
Irv Marchand, Senior Global Account Director at Epiq highlighted the importance of AVLF’s mission and its convergence with company values. “Epiq is deeply committed to giving back to our community. We are very proud to stand with AVLF because our familiarity with legal services demonstrates that the work AVLF does is crucial: the impact of establishing access to legal justice for those who wouldn’t ordinarily receive it creates a safer and more stable Atlanta for everyone.”
Marty Ellin, AVLF’s Executive Director, lauded the enormous impact that Epiq’s generosity has had on AVLF. “We are grateful for the many forms of support shown by Epiq and its wonderfully generous employees! From Board service, to volunteer engagement to financial gifts, Epiq has been a consistent and increasingly important partner in the effort to promote equal access to justice for the members of our collective community who have no other access to counsel when faced with a legal problem.”

The progress of our innovative, groundbreaking programs relies on committed donors like Epiq. AVLF’s 2019 Annual Campaign gives us a way of taking local action on national problems by bringing safety and stability to low-income families in Atlanta. Your Annual Campaign donation will help us deepen the conversation around mobile advocacy, help a survivor of intimate partner abuse find a safe home, ensure that our clients have emergency assistance when they need it, and so much more.
Epiq’s steadfast dedication and critically important contributions to AVLF have helped us stand with Atlanta’s families in as many ways as possible. We are so grateful to Epiq for ensuring that all those who desperately need justice have access to it. If you’d like to get involved, you can learn more about our 2019 Annual Campaign here.
