Legal Aid of East Tennessee’s Pro Bono Project, through strong partnerships with individual volunteer attorneys, law firms, bar associations, and other partner agencies, provides convenient and efficient opportunities for lawyers to fulfill their ethical duties to render pro bono service and to enjoy the personal rewards that come from service to others.
We work to create opportunities for volunteer attorneys to provide critical civil legal help to clients who need help maintaining housing, safety, financial stability, and health. We help our volunteer attorneys provide our neighbors who are most disadvantaged with dignity, respect, and hope.
Interested in taking a case? You choose what you want to do, when you want to do it, and what clients you want to help. You can volunteer at in-person advice clinics, accept cases for direct representation, prepare documents, participate in phone advice clinics, or come up with an idea for us to try to put into place! If you are interested in volunteering, we will find an opportunity that matches your interests, abilities, and passions.
