Are you an attorney, paralegal, law student, or other professional who would like to change lives while advancing justice?
You’ve come to the right place!
The mission of FRLS Pro Bono Initiative is to increase access to justice through partnership with the private bar, law students, paralegals, and other professionals to change lives while advancing justice. We seek to create an environment that promotes personal fulfillment and individual growth to our volunteers. In 2016, our pro bono volunteers donated over 1,600 hours of legal assistance helping clients that otherwise would have been turned away due to our limited resources. Thank you!
