Laurel Legal Services welcomes those who wish to volunteer time and services in helping our clients obtain equal access to justice.  We welcome practicing attorneys, law students, and under graduates who wish to learn more about civil legal aid and give back to the community.  We also welcome trained paralegals as volunteers.

We can be flexible in work schedules and can work with you to determine the site that best fits your needs and area of expertise.

Volunteer attorneys currently:

  • Help us conduct legal clinics for residents in our six counties
  • Handle pro bono cases involving Protection from Abuse, credit card defense, unemployment compensation, bankruptcy, SSI , and expungements
  •  Provide custody advice in person and over the telephone
  • Take reduced fee referrals for bankruptcy, divorce, custody, and support
  • Assist with fundraising efforts and resource development

Volunteer law students currently provide thousands of hours of help to our clients under the direction of our attorneys on such legal issues as Protection From Abuse, landlord tenant, employment law, and bankruptcy. Internships for law students, both during the school year and the summer, introduce students to the practice of poverty law through hands on experience.
