BAY AREA VOLUNTEER LAWYERS PROGRAM:
(Pasco and North Pinellas County)
Pro Bono Opportunities for Pinellas and Pasco County Attorneys:
There are a variety of pro bono opportunities available. Whether you are a new or seasoned attorney, we can assist you with choosing a volunteer opportunity that suits your interests, skills and availability. If you would like to join our pro bono efforts, we would love to hear from you! To volunteer, contact Julie Ann Ember at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nery Alonso at email@example.com.
Accept civil case referrals in those areas of the law that you have designated. Low-income clients are screened for eligibility and cases are reviewed for legal merit prior to referral.
Interview and advise eligible clients at various intake locations around the community. No experience is necessary. New volunteers can shadow experienced attorneys. Training provided.
Help pro se litigants complete family law forms. Staff is available to answer any questions. New volunteers can shadow experienced attorneys. No family law experience needed. Training is provided.
“Ask a Lawyer” Series
In conjunction with the Clearwater Bar Association and the Clearwater Public Library System, we have developed the “Ask a Lawyer: Free Legal Advice” Series. The topic varies each session. We are in need of speakers who can provide legal information to the general public on specific areas such as family law, wills and probate and bankruptcy and credit issues.
Become a mentor; we need your expertise! Attorneys with specialized expertise will impart their wisdom to less experienced volunteer attorneys handling pro bono cases or BALS staff attorneys.
Stetson Bankruptcy Practicum
Handle a Chapter 7 or 13 Bankruptcy case via Stetson Law School’s new Bankruptcy Practicum. Experienced bankruptcy attorneys are needed to mentor up to three Stetson students during the course of representation on a Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy case. For details, contact Sue-Helen Motley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
