General Volunteers:

COVID-19 Update: Due to growing concerns regarding COVID-19, Houston Volunteer Lawyers is canceling all of the remaining March legal advice clinics. Starting on Friday, March 27, HVL will be conducting legal advice clinics remotely. We are seeking volunteer attorneys to call HVL applicants and provide legal advice and counsel over the phone on Friday afternoons from 2 pm - 5 pm. If you're interested in volunteering, please email


With a current Texas bar license, you can volunteer at one of our legal advice clinics or represent a client pro bono.

To volunteer at a legal advice clinic (no obligation to take a case), register online or e-mail our Pro Bono Coordinator.

To find a pro bono case that is right for you, use our Pro Bono Portal, where you can:

  • Search our live list of cases
  • Sort by law type
  • Immediately download the documents you need
  • Access legal resource materials, including digital forms
  • Contact the staff attorney mentor assigned to your case

Sign up for e-news about upcoming events, available cases, and training opportunities!
