The mission of the King County Bar Association's Pro Bono Services (PBS) is to promote social justice by ensuring equal and non-discriminatory access to PBS services for all individuals. PBS programs provide volunteer-based, client-focused legal services to low income King County residents who would not otherwise receive legal assistance.
Pro Bono Services Programs
Assistance for low-income King County residents who are married or unmarried parents with contested family law cases (dissolution, petitions to establish a parenting plan, or paternity cases) where children are at risk due to domestic violence, child abuse/neglect, or alcohol/drug abuse.
Free legal help for eligible low-income tenants facing eviction in King County. Clinics are open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to noon at the King County Courthouse in Seattle and the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. HJP also offers a clinic on Monday evenings at the King County Courthouse in Seattle.
Pro bono legal representation provided through a panel of volunteer attorneys for relatives and other caregivers seeking custody (also known as third party custody) of a child or children.
Volunteers provide free 30-minute consultations regarding civil legal issues. Attorneys determine the legal problem, suggest possible options, and provide clients with appropriate referrals.
Attorneys assist pro se clients in non-contested marriage dissolutions and help to establish parenting plans and child support agreements in non-contested cases when the father has already been determined.
Pro bono representation for clients with specific legal issues including Chapter 7 bankruptcy, debt defense, estate planning, non-eviction landlord/tenant disputes, SSI/SSDI overpayments, vacating criminal records, and student loan discharge.
