Placeholder Image
The Georgia Legal Services Program, which has an office in Gainesville, has won major recognition from the American Bar Association in the Hodson Award for Public Service for 2014. Named for the distinguished public service career of the late Maj. Gen. Kenneth J. Hodson, a former judge advocate general of the U.S. Army and founder of the ABA’s Government and Public Sector Lawyers Division, the Hodson Award recognizes “sustained, outstanding performance for a specific and extraordinary service by a government or public sector law office.” GLSP has an office in Gainesville where seven lawyers and two paralegals serve the civil legal needs of low-income Georgians in 27 counties including Hall and Dawson.
