How to Help: Legal Assistance
We welcome attorney volunteers who are able to accept pro bono case referrals or mentor less experienced attorneys in their areas of specialization. Your volunteer work is covered by Veterans Legal Services’ malpractice insurance. Some ways to volunteer include:
- Accept pro bono case referrals
- Counsel veterans at Stand Down, Yellow Ribbon events, and other periodic events
- Conduct outreach presentations at shelters and social service agencies
- Mentor less experienced attorneys
For more information, email VLS’s Pro Bono Director, Lynn Girton, at Lynn@veteranslegalservices.org.
How to Help: Fundraising and Donations
We understand that many attorneys would like to offer pro bono representation, but cannot due to work and family responsibilities. Your tax-deductible financial support allows us to retain staff to support more volunteers, open new clinics, and provide services to more veterans in need. See our webpage on Giving for more information.
