Of the many ways to support those struggling during the Covid-19 pandemic, there is one way you may be uniquely qualified to serve: as a virtual attorney volunteer. It’s a safe way to have an impact on the life of a low-income individual or family struggling with a civil legal concern—because even as we all work to adjust to a new normal, the needs of our clients are as great as ever.
You can make a difference.
While our in-person Help Desks are suspended for the safety of our clients and volunteers, you can help clients by phone by signing up for one of our virtual Help Desks:
Civil: Tuesdays and Thursdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Domestic Relations: Wednesdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
You will only be assigned two clients maximum per Help Desk.
You can also provide an invaluable service by volunteering to represent a client in a virtual hearing. To volunteer, email Michelle Horn Brown: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 205.250.5198, ext. 11.
