Providing Legal Assistance to Those In Need

Our Mission

To support and supplement existing systems for providing legal assistance to those in need by identifying gaps in services, developing new programs, and facilitating collaboration among existing legal service providers.

Our Vision

That the justice gap in Middle Georgia will be substantially reduced by our efforts to find a way to provide legal assistance for everyone in Middle Georgia who needs legal assistance but cannot afford it. Our goal is to provide Middle Georgia residents full access to effective assistance for their essential legal needs by a variety of traditional and innovative means.

Incubator Program

The Middle Georgia Justice Incubator Program offers entrepreneurial-minded attorneys the opportunity to start a solo law practice in a supportive setting at a reasonable fee. In exchange for the strong support provided to them, attorneys selected to participate in the program will be required to do a certain amount of pro bono and reduced fee legal work. The attorneys in the eighteen-month program will start and operate their own law practices and will receive the following benefits:

  • Office space in a downtown Macon location.
  • Equipment, technology, and furniture.
  • Training in substantive law as well as law office management.
  • Experienced mentors
  • Referral to fee paying clients
  • Participation in a structured pro bono program


Eligibility for the program requires membership in good standing in the State Bar of Georgia. Qualified applicants who are waiting on bar exam results will be accepted subject to passing the bar and being admitted into practice. The fee to participate in the program is $7500 payable monthly according to payment terms agreed upon by the MGJ and the participant.

By being part of this program, participants agree to attend:

  • Solo practice training
  • 1 trial day
  • Other training as directed
  • Mentoring sessions
  • Monthly case reviews

Each participant will develop a business plan which includes agreement to develop a socially conscious law practice that incorporates pro bono and reduced fee legal representation of at least 30 hours per month. Participants are expected to conduct their legal practice in a competent and professional manner in accordance with the highest ethical, professional, and service standards.
