At Alston & Bird we passionately embrace the communities in which we live and work. Whether it’s through our diverse slate of pro bono legal commitments or our varied community service efforts, serving those in need occupies a central position in our culture, our business plan and our hearts.
Our volunteers focus their work on issues such as advocating for voiceless children, supporting asylum seekers, representing victims of domestic violence, and generally giving access to justice to those who might otherwise be overlooked. We work for systemic change in our legal system and for meaningful change in the lives of individuals. Alston & Bird attorneys have both a local and global impact through the grants we award, the boards we serve on and the clients to whom we donate our time and expertise.
