Peer-to-Peer Challenge

September 20 – October 22

2021 marks 40 years of HVL providing pro bono service in the Houston area. Help us celebrate that milestone by giving 4, 40, or 400 hours of your time to close the justice gap.

We encourage all members of the legal profession (attorneys and non-attorneys) to donate time, treasure, or both as we work in celebration of HVL’s 40th anniversary to wipe out HVL’s case placement waitlist and help low-income Houstonians access the justice they need.

We gratefully recognize these five Harvest Peer-to-Peer Challenge Champions that were the first companies in 2021 to engage their entire legal departments in this effort.

Give Time

Attorney Volunteers

Give 40 hours: Take a pro bono civil case on the HVL waitlist.

(Actual time commitments will be case-specific.)

Give 4 hours: Volunteer for a shift providing legal advice over the phone with Legal Advice Line.

Non-Attorney Volunteers

HVL needs notaries, interpreters, witnesses, and coordinators to help at client-facing clinics and events like Will-a-Thon.

Give Treasure

We appreciate those who have given of their time and treasure:

CenterPoint Energy, Inc., Chevron Corporation, EOG Resources, Inc., Hewlett-Packard Enterprises, LyondellBasell Industries, Beck Redden LLP, Kirkland & Ellis, LLP, Blank Rome LLP, Shortt & Nguyen, P.C., Anne Chandler, Marilyn Brown, Baker Botts L.L.P., Theodore D.
