Attorneys assist people with low incomes by conducting interviews, providing legal advice in person or by phone, and representing individuals with meritorious civil legal issues. Areas of especially great need include debt advice, Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and attorneys who speak Spanish. Volunteer attorneys also are needed for cases to assist children through the program's Children's Law Center, assist with civil or family law appeals in Division One of the Arizona Court of Appeals, and to represent pro bono clients on other civil matters including contracts, home ownership, adult guardianship, tenants' rights, and tax. The Volunteer Lawyers Program is co-sponsored by Community Legal Services and the Maricopa County Bar Association and provides free trainings, consultants, mentors, donated support services for litigation, and verification to allow CLE credit for pro bono service provided through the program.
