AGG Partner William Kitchens Receives Lifetime Commitment to Legal Services Award

AGG partner William H. Kitchens received the Randall L. Hughes Lifetime Commitment to Legal Services Award at an Atlanta Bar Association luncheon on October 19, 2012. In announcing the award, Steve Gottlieb, executive director of Atlanta Legal Aid stated “Bill is a constant source of inspiration and creativity for Atlanta Legal Aid executive and fundraising staff.” Mr. Kitchens headed a committee of the State Bar Access to Justice Committee looking at increased funding for legal aid across the state, and was also chair of Atlanta Legal Aid’s annual campaign in 2008 and 2009. Both campaigns exceeded goals, and raised over $3.3 million to support Legal Aid’s civil legal services to low income persons in the Metro Atlanta area.
