Atlanta's Legal Community Lends a Hand in Community Service on ServiceJuris Day: Sutherland Partner Bert Adams to Serve as Co-Chair

June 14, 2004

ATLANTA (June 14, 2004) – On Saturday, June 26, 2004, more than 800 members of Atlanta's legal community will team up with Hands On Atlanta for a day of service.  Teams from Atlanta law firms, law schools, courts, bar associations and companies associated with the legal industry will join forces to help revitalize the Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown neighborhoods.

Co-Chairs for this year's ServiceJuris Day are independent lawyer Stephen Opler and Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP's partner Bert Adams III.  Sponsored by Sutherland, the event was created in response to the desire of many practicing lawyers, or those associated with the law, to participate in a hands-on volunteer experience, and to highlight the many contributions already being made by Atlanta's legal community.

Several law firms who are year-round financial supporters of Hands On Atlanta are taking advantage of this day to get involved on a more personal level.  Hands On Atlanta's year-round partners include Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP, IKON Office Solutions, Kilpatrick Stockton LLP, King & Spalding LLP, Alston & Bird LLP, and Powell Goldstein Frazer & Murphy LLP.

The day will start with a breakfast and registration at 8 a.m. at Turner Field and the volunteer teams will work from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the different sites.  Participants are encouraged to invite their law school friends, co-workers or legal association members to form a team.  For more information, e-mail or check out
