Make Justice Happen

Houston Volunteer Lawyers is always seeking additional volunteer attorneys to assist the most vulnerable populations in Harris County and the surrounding area. If you are a licensed attorney who is in good standing with your State Bar, then we need your help. As a volunteer attorney, you can join others who are filling the justice gap for veterans, domestic violence survivors, families facing homelessness, and many others who do not have access to legal representation.
