Our inspirational client stories from staff and volunteers are both compelling and encouraging. With your help, access to justice is growing every day. At Legal Aid Pro Bono, our goal is to make volunteering a great experience for our pro bono attorneys and for our clients. We provide client intake, screening, legal check-ups, document collection and review. You provide discrete legal representation or advice. You direct the scope - limited or full service. Volunteer with us and see your interests, your schedule, and your experience working for good.
