Opportunities for Volunteer Attorneys

 

We could not accomplish our mission without the help of dedicated attorneys who offer their service pro bono. One size does not fit all when it comes to volunteering. Therefore we offer diverse opportunities designed to fit the interests and availability of our volunteers. 


Full Representation Programs allow volunteers to use their professional expertise to meet a variety of legal needs. The length and scope of commitment varies per case situation.  Limited Service Programs allow our volunteer to make a big impact with a short time commitment. Attorneys who prefer a limited commitment often serve at workshops, clinics, and on our helpline.
