Volunteer Lawyers Project Opportunities

Wisconsin lawyers have a tradition of service to the community through pro bono work. Our Volunteer Lawyers Project offers attorneys the opportunity to carry on this important tradition.  No matter your level of experience or area of expertise, Legal Action needs you because our clients need you.

Consumer Advocacy & Bankruptcy Advice Project

Attorneys register to assess the merits of each client's case and provide legal advice. Complete the Consumer-Bankruptcy Volunteer Form and fax, mail or email it to the Volunteer Lawyers Project.  (Contact information is on the form.)
