Legal Services of Northern Virginia - Fairfax Office - Employment Clinic

Attorneys are needed on alternate Thursday afternoons in LSNV's Fairfax office to meet with clients with employment problems. The volunteers are not committed to provide more than counsel or brief service, although representation-when warranted-is encouraged. Only the consultation is pro bono; if a merited fee-generating case is identified, the volunteers are encouraged to offer assistance if they choose to, on a compensated basis. Merited, non fee-generating cases are referred to staff, are co-counseled with staff or may be handled on a pro bono basis. Training is provided, and a staff attorney is on site to provide mentoring and to accept referrals for staff representation. This project is co-sponsored by the Fairfax Bar Pro Bono Program.
