State Bar of Georgia Military and Veterans Legal Assistance Program
104 Marietta St. NW, Suite 100
Atlanta, GA 30303
Contact: M. Christopher Pitts
The State Bar of Georgia Military Legal Assistance Program assists service members and veterans by connecting them to State Bar members who are willing to provide free or reduced-fee legal services. Service members and veterans often have legal needs in their personal lives and specific to their military service. They also face financial issues and other civil law matters resulting from the sacrifices made in military life. Depending on eligibility, clients will be connected to a lawyer in their geographic area with expertise in their area of need. The program helps veterans who have service-connected disability legal issues and service members who have civil, non-criminal legal needs.
