Atlanta, February 11, 2014 – The Metro Atlanta Association of Professionals announced today a collaborative effort with Woven, a national, web-based company whose mission is to provide legal and financial resources to the LGBT community,
“This is a great opportunity for many of our attorneys, financial advisers, tax and insurance professionals in the metro Atlanta region and nationwide,” said Joshua D. Lorenz, MAAP CEO and president. “I believe strongly in Woven and believe it is a valuable resource to the LGBT community.”
Woven network members are professionals who have demonstrated competence and passion in working with the unique legal and financial issues faced by LGBT couples and families.
