Lawyers serving the public good.

ABA Military Pro Bono Project (Arizona)

The ABA Military Pro Bono Project accepts case referrals from military legal assistance attorneys (JAGs) anywhere in the world on behalf of junior enlisted military members facing civil legal issues that require services beyond what JAGs can provide. The Project then places these cases with attorneys who offer pro bono help where the legal assistance is needed in the United States. These cases involve a variety of legal areas, such as family law, creditor and consumer issues, foreclosure prevention, landlord-tenant disputes, and others. The Project also includes Operation Stand-By, through which civilian attorneys may volunteer to offer lawyer-to-lawyer consultations to JAGs in need of guidance. Attorneys may register on www.MilitaryProBono.org to get involved:

Pro Bono Legal Assistance: Attorneys interested in providing pro bono legal assistance to military members may register to receive email notices of pro bono legal case opportunities from the Project when cases arise in the attorneys' geographic areas and substantive legal areas of expertise.

Operation Stand-By: Attorneys joining Operation Stand-By may periodically receive short calls or emails from JAGs in need of consultation on substantive or jurisdiction-specific information relating to the attorneys' areas of expertise, so the military attorneys can further assist their servicemember clients.
