More than 20,000 residents receive services from the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program provided by our volunteer attorneys annually. We have a vital impact on the lives of the people we serve – families trying to keep a roof over their heads in the face of foreclosure or eviction, disabled workers seeking public benefits that they have been wrongly denied, and parents pursuing fair and reasonable child custody arrangements.
Throughout the year, pro bono service is being offered to our neighbors in need. Issues range from bankruptcy/debt collection, consumer law, employment law, family law, health law, housing law, immigration/asylum, personal injury, probate, public benefits, and tax law.
Advice and Referral Clinics take legal assistance to the neighborhoods where it is most needed – from Shaw and Anacostia to Columbia Heights. Our volunteer attorneys offer legal information, brief advice, referrals and when appropriate, representation. Over 1,200 individuals were served last year.
Access to Justice Clinic attorneys represent clients with a range of civil legal problems. More than 320 cases were placed last year.
Resource Centers in D.C. Superior Court help individuals with landlord/tenant, family, consumer and probate law matters.
Community Economic Development Project matches attorneys or firms with community-based nonprofit organizations and small businesses that receive counsel in employment law, real estate, corporate governance, contract review, intellectual property, and exempt organizations. Legal information and brief advice is provided to small business owners operating in economically disadvantaged areas or who have limited financial resources.
