Why Volunteer with VLSC?

If you are a newer attorney, you can gain valuable experience, and volunteer with more experienced attorneys. If you are a more seasoned attorney, in addition to helping clients, you can help guide the next generation of volunteers by serving as a supervising volunteer. Either way, you’ll hone your skills and enjoy the feeling of making a real difference in the life of someone needing help.

Plus, we screen each client to establish that his or her income and resources are within our eligibility guidelines. Our staff also completes a thorough intake regarding the client’s legal matter so you can dive right in.
