Become a Pro Bono Lawyer

Without pro bono assistance, many DC children and families could not receive the access to justice they deserve. We prepare pro bono lawyers to successfully meet this need for legal help, regardless of experience, through our commitment to high-quality training and mentoring.

While they may first come to us for help on one issue, we often find other pieces that need to come together to create the picture they want to build.
