Legal Aid Pro Bono Award given to one of our own

Mary Montgomery, SM&P’s founding and managing partner, was listed among the 2021 Pro Bono Stars on Atlanta Legal Aid’s social media pages. The Pro Bono Star Award honors volunteers who have handled three or more cases or volunteered at least 50 hours in the past year.

“The Cobb Justice Foundation is incredibly appreciative of our partnership with Stearns-Montgomery,” said Mary Carson, Cobb Justice Foundation paralegal with Cobb Legal Aid.

“Legal Aid does so much for the community, more than they are recognized for,” said Mary. “I have appreciated how much they accomplish and the opportunities they present for those of us in the legal field to give back. It does make a difference.”

Atlanta Legal Aid’s 75 staff attorneys and 1,200 volunteers help 20,000 low-income people in five counties navigate the complex court system each year.
