Taylor English to Host Georgia Appleseed Center for Law and Justice
Taylor English Duma LLP is pleased to welcome the Georgia Appleseed Center for Law and Justice into its newly renovated office space in Atlanta. Founded in 2005, Georgia Appleseed is a non-profit, non-partisan, public interest law center with the mission to increase justice through law and policy reform and community engagement in Georgia.
“As a growing non-profit organization, we are thrilled to be hosted by Taylor English and look forward to continuing our work helping children, poor people and those who are marginalized in society,” said Sharon Hill, Executive Director of Georgia Appleseed. “We are also extremely thankful to Kilpatrick Townsend for having hosted us since our founding 12 years ago.”
Taylor English has long maintained a close relationship with Georgia Appleseed, with two Taylor English attorneys, Eric Fisher and Alison Ballard, having served as president of Georgia Appleseed’s Young Professional Council (YPC). In August 2017, Fisher was elected to the non-profit’s Board of Directors.
“Georgia Appleseed has been able to address serious issues of public concern by enlisting the volunteer services of lawyers and other professionals from around the state,” said Eric Fisher, attorney at Taylor English and Georgia Appleseed Board Member. “Commitments from law firms like Taylor English help ensure Georgia Appleseed can execute its mission of helping those who are often marginalized receive justice.”
Georgia Appleseed moved into Taylor English’s office space on September 25, 2017 and is committed through the end of 2018. In addition to office space, Taylor English has committed to hosting the Georgia Appleseed’s Board of Director meetings and Young Professional Council events.
“Georgia Appleseed does incredible work to help those in need across the state of Georgia,” said Marc Taylor, a founding partner of Taylor English. “We look forward to hosting their talented and hardworking team in our offices and doing our part to support the non-profit legal community.”
