At Parker Hudson, we have a strong desire and an obligation to give back to the communities in which we work and live. This includes using our skills and resources to support and lead civic and charitable organizations, and to help those who otherwise do not have access to justice.
Parker Hudson attorneys have a rich history of community leadership, ranging from Bar organizations to civic and charitable boards to pro bono organizations to state and local politics. We encourage our attorneys to serve in such capacities, which provides valuable opportunities for them to build their leadership skills while giving back to the community.
The Parker Hudson commitment to pro bono works runs deep. The firm is a major sponsor of the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and was recently named the AVLF “Firm of the Year.” Partner Nancy Baughan is the vice-chair of the AVLF board. Parker Hudson also is a long term supporter of the Georgia Justice Project. Dozens of our attorneys donate their time each year to help the public via numerous pro bono programs including the AVLF Saturday Lawyer program (tenant’s rights and wage & hour disputes), the AVLF Safe Families Office (helping victims of domestic violence), the Georgia Justice Project Criminal Records Clinic, and the Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta. The firm also is a long standing "Pace Setter" supporter of Atlanta Legal Aid.
Parker Hudson has long supported the United Way, with Senior Counsel Dave Cleveland serving as campaign chair for more than 30 years. Our attorneys are also passionate supporters of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, having given over $1 million to the organization over the last decade, the Georgia Conservancy, where the firm’s attorneys provide volunteer services and sponsor numerous events, Trees Atlanta, with two of our partners serving as past board chairs, and many other charities.
