Did You Know...
Pro Bono leverages private attorney resources to provide legal assistance to eligible low-income people with important civil legal matters where counsel is otherwise unavailable.
You do not have to be a family law practitioner to volunteer through the Pro Bono Program. Our clients often have issues that require legal expertise in a wide-range of subject matters. Pro Bono staff evaluate and identify cases where we believe you can make the greatest difference, and make sure that you do not have to go it alone when you take a case.
For attorneys handling cases that are referred through our program, you benefit from:
- professional liability insurance (covering the specific pro bono cases);
- CLEs at reduced rates;
- waiver of court and in-state service fees;
- reimbursement for some out-of –pocket expenses that cannot be covered by the client;
- interpreters for out-of-court client communications.
- and the Pro Bono Program staff will do its best to locate other resources required in representing Pro Bono clients.
