Tacomaprobono Community Lawyers

Tacomaprobono Community Lawyers combats systemic racism and other forms of discrimination by expanding access to civil legal justice. We provide free holistic legal services, including representation, advice and education to those persons who by reason of poverty are unable to effectively access the legal system. Alongside our volunteers, we provide a wide variety of service delivery programs. Our work removes barriers which deny justice to underserved and marginalized individuals and communities by providing efficient, effective legal services addressing both individual client legal issues and systemic issues affecting our diverse client population.

We seek volunteers to assist clients with a variety of civil legal needs. Volunteers may participate by meeting briefly with a client for advice and counsel or may elect to provide a more involved level of representation. As a volunteer attorney, your work with the program is determined entirely by your own interests and schedule. We have the highest need in the areas of family and housing, but also help clients with bankruptcy, employment, will, estates, Social Security/SSI, and many other civil legal areas. Training and mentorship opportunities are available.
