Houston Volunteer Lawyers is seeking volunteer attorneys to assist with providing legal advice to HVL applicants. Due to COVID-19 concerns, HVL is not conducting any in-person clinics.
Each volunteer is asked to call four clients (1 per hour) on Friday afternoons from 1 pm - 5 pm. HVL will provide the client's phone number, legal resources, and contact information for a staff attorney mentor.
Please note that starting in 2021, HVL is no longer asking the volunteer to fill out a questionnaire with the client, or determine whether or not the client qualifies for extended representation. After prescreening, HVL has determined that the clients scheduled for clinics do not qualify for extended representation through HVL. These clinics are only to provide legal advice.
