The Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF) coordinates the provision of free civil legal services for low-income Fulton County residents by private lawyers. In 2009, AVLF advised more than 28, 500 callers and secured representation or other forms of legal information and support for more than 2, 500 eligible clients through volunteer attorneys.

AVLF currently administers several pro bono projects.

The Guardian ad Litem Program provides a guardian at the request of Fulton Superior Court Judges in contested custody disputes.

AVLF's Domestic Violence Program's Safe Families Office helps victims of domestic and other violence, regardless of economic status, to secure temporary (and longer) Protective Orders.

The One Child, One Lawyer program provides an Attorney ad Litem for children whose parents are participating in the Fulton County Juvenile Court Drug Program.

Through the Wills on Wheels program, volunteer lawyers draft Wills and advance directives for non-ambulatory seniors. The Wills for Emergency Personnel Project offers a will at no cost for City of Atlanta and Fulton County emergency services employees.

AVLF's Eviction Defense Program offers legal representation to any tenant threatened with the loss of his/her home. As well, the Probate Information Center coordinates free counsel on estate issues in the Fulton County Probate Court.

Any case that does not fit neatly into the categories listed above, or the many other programs run by AVLF, may be addressed through AVLF's Saturday Lawyer Program, the Foundation's oldest and largest volunteer program. Forty four Saturday mornings a year, volunteer lawyers staff the Downtown Atlanta Legal Aid office and represent clients, screened by AVLF and ALAS staff, in the breadth of civil legal concerns.

For this and every program, AVLF provides training to the volunteers and supervision throughout the course of the representation.
