Alston & Bird-Supported Emory Law Volunteer Clinic for Veterans Featured in Georgia Bar Journal

The Georgia Bar Journal recently published an extensive piece on the Emory Law Volunteer Clinic, a program supported by Alston & Bird and staffed in part with firm attorneys. The clinic provides pro bono legal service for military veterans in need of assistance regarding claims for service-connected disabilities filed with the department of Veteran Affairs. Lawyer teams representing the clients are made up of Emory law students and attorney mentors culled from a variety of top local firms, Alston & Bird among them. Firm attorneys Emily Hootkins, Stacy Clark, Pat DiCarloJulia Dempewolf and Brendan Krasinski are among those volunteering with the clinic.

The program has been deemed a huge success. Since opening its doors in 2013, 35 student volunteers have been working on 31 cases for veterans and their family members.
