The need for legal services is great. While our staff attorneys provide critical legal services to DV survivors, the majority of our legal services are provided by volunteer attorneys through advice clinics, brief services appointments, and direct representation. To provide these services, we rely on you, our volunteers.
You can help us provide this much needed legal support in our community. In the links below you’ll find information about the opportunities to volunteer and how to get started. We look forward to working with you. And on behalf of ourselves and our clients, thank you.
