Volunteer Lawyers serving Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland and Warren Counties

THE VOLUNTEER LAWYERS PROJECT

The Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) recruits, trains and supports volunteer attorneys who provide high quality legal services to low income individuals who do not have the resources to pay for legal representation.  Since its founding in 1982, VLP attorneys have made a difference in the lives of thousands of individuals and families in southwest Ohio, bringing the concept of EQUAL JUSTICE closer to reality.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The VLP is looking for volunteer attorneys to REPRESENT individuals in a variety of legal areas. Representation opportunities include brief service, counsel and advice, negotiation and settlement of contested issues and appearances before Administrative agencies or the Court. Click here to learn about the types of legal services our volunteers provide.  Most service will be Pro Bono, but Reduced Fee payments also may be available: Click here for more information. The VLP also is looking for experienced attorneys to MENTOR volunteer attorneys who may be learning a new area of practice.  Mentors will provide the guidance new attorneys may need to provide adequate representation to their VLP clients, but will not have direct case responsibility.  Click here for details.
