About the Volunteer Lawyers Program

Since 1982, the Volunteer Lawyers Program has provided pro bono opportunities for attorneys who want to donate their time and share their expertise to help those in need in our community.

We collaborate with lawyers and organizations of all backgrounds, including but not limited to professional associations, law firms, the judiciary, and local bar sections and committees to offer a wide variety of pro bono projects.

We have a Volunteer Lawyers Program office in Clearwater, thanks to a partnership between Bay Area Legal and the Clearwater Bar Association. Our Northwest office provides pro bono services to the under-served residents of North Pinellas and West Pasco counties. Similar to our main office in Tampa, attorneys can donate their time and share their expertise to help residents of these counties.

The Volunteer Lawyers Program can help you find a volunteer opportunity to match your interest, skills, and availability. We offer training and mentoring to build your skills. We have opportunities that accommodate tight schedules. Whether you are a litigator, a transactional attorney, or a member of the judiciary, there is a pro bono project that is right for you.
