Houston Volunteer Lawyers
Houston Volunteer Lawyers is the largest provider of pro bono legal services in Harris County and the surrounding areas. Thousands of private attorneys volunteer their time and expertise each year to provide free legal assistance on civil legal matters to eligible, low-income area residents. This pro bono model only works thanks to the dedication of the entire legal community in Harris County and the surrounding areas. HVL is especially thankful for the long-standing relationship with the Houston Bar Association that has resulted in millions of dollars of donated pro bono time from its members for 40 years.
