What Lawyers For Equal Justice does: 

Lawyers for Equal Justice (“L4EJ”) is an incubator program that provides a springboard for recent law school graduates to start innovative, socially conscious and sustainable law practices providing affordable legal services to low and moderate income clients.

L4EJ provides an 18-month program to help attorneys accelerate the launch of their solo practices in a range of practice areas. Attorneys who are selected by L4EJ to participate pay a participation fee and benefit from a collaborative office environment; a case referral program; practical resources including law practice management technology; and top-notch training, mentoring and business coaching.

L4EJ seeks to identify talented, public-interest minded and entrepreneurial lawyers who want to build innovative practices that “break the mold” to provide cost-effective services. L4EJ participants are chosen through a competitive selection process that includes a personal statement and interview. L4EJ accepts a group of up to 10 participants every November and June, with up to 30 participants total in the program at any time.  For application information, please contact our Executive Director, Stephanie Everett.

L4EJ is not a law firm.  L4EJ and its staff do not exercise direct or indirect supervisory or managerial authority over the participating attorneys, and L4EJ does not share legal fees with the participating attorneys.  L4EJ is a community for individual, Georgia attorneys committed to serving people of modest economic means.  Each participating attorney operates his or her own, distinct and independent practice. No legal representation relationship exists in any way between L4EJ and any of the clients or prospective clients of the participating attorneys and/or between any user of this website and L4EJ or any of its affiliates.

Who we serve:

While Georgia’s non-profit legal service providers do their best to help those in need, there are over 1.69 million Georgia households in the low and moderate income brackets who do not qualify for free services and cannot afford legal help. It is estimated that 90% of these Georgians do not obtain legal help for issues where legal representation could significantly change the outcome and improve their lives significantly.

Participating law firms work to close this gap by developing practices that provide quality legal services that are accessible and affordable. Participants accomplish this by leveraging technology, offering alternative fee arrangements and a la carte services, and maximizing collaboration with their clients.  

_____________________________

Who we are:
