ABA: Disaster Relief Pro Bono Portal, use this resource to find pro bono opportunities, including those helping victims of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Willing to volunteer pro bono legal services to individuals impacted by the coronavirus pandemic but not sure where to promote those pro bono legal services? The Legal Forum is collecting information on attorneys willing to volunteer help to pandemic victims on a pro bono basis. The coronavirus pandemic is creating a dire need for attorneys to represent clients facing eviction, foreclosure, bankruptcy, or devastating debt collection. Until the emergency subsides, The Legal Forum plans to list attorneys and law firms in their newsletter space who are willing to volunteer to represent at least a few clients on a pro bono basis.
If you can help, please send an email to The Legal Forum giving your firm’s name, the name of the contact person, email address, phone number and service you will provide, such as representation in eviction, foreclosure or bankruptcy cases. Send the emails to firstname.lastname@example.org with “pro bono” in the subject line. Information about the listings will be sent to media organizations throughout the Washington area. Note that in a few cases, a dramatically reduced rate might be acceptable if pro bono is not possible. If that is your reality, please list your rate in the "pro bono" email to email@example.com.
