Your Counsel is Needed

 

Because of Iowa Legal Aid's limited resources, not all who need assistance can be served by the program. Each year, 13,500 people in need of help must either be turned away or given less help than really required to resolve their legal problems. Volunteer lawyers provide pro bono services to clients eligible for assistance who would otherwise be without the assistance of an attorney. After screening for income and resource eligibility as well as type and merit of legal problem, cases are referred by Iowa Legal Aid and placed with volunteer lawyers through your local pro bono delivery program. As a volunteer lawyer, you determine types of legal problems to consider taking and decide if you will accept a specific case referred to you for pro bono assistance.
