Volunteer Lawyers Program - Children's Law Center

A project of The Volunteer Lawyers Program, the Children's Law Center's volunteer attorneys address the needs of at risk youth in numerous ways. Volunteer Attorneys serve as Court Appointed Advisors in high conflict family law cases to represent the best interests of the children. Attorneys also volunteer to represent caretakers in obtaining guardianship's and adoptions of vulnerable children when their parents are unable or unwilling to care for them. Special education cases are also referred to attorneys to ensure at risk youth are getting these services they desperately need. The Center also runs a free advice clinic for teens.

The Children's Law Center is a program of The Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP), a joint project of CLS and the Maricopa County Bar Association.
