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.
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.
HVL needs notaries, interpreters, witnesses, and coordinators to help at client-facing clinics and events like Will-a-Thon.
Spread the word to your peers in the legal community! Below is a toolkit to help you show your support of pro bono and encourage others to join you.
