Memphis Area Legal Services has found new headquarters at One Memphis Place, the Memphis Business Journal reports. The building, which is located at 200 Jefferson Ave., sits the next block over from the Shelby County Courthouse. According to MALS CEO and general counsel Cindy Cole Ettingoff, the nonprofit has also gone from 14,000 square feet to a little more than 6,000 “because the pandemic taught us that people can work remotely.” Ettingoff said the group is using the money saved from its reduced square footage to embrace the newest legal industry trends in storage, accessibility, and remote working. The savings will also go toward hiring, due to what Ettingoff says is a “great” demand for public defense services.
