These three volunteer lawyer programs of: Community Legal Services; DNA People's Legal Services; and Southern Arizona Legal Aid, work together to provided coordinated volunteer opportunities throughout Arizona.
Community Legal Services VLP - The Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP), a joint project of CLS and the Maricopa County Bar Association, provides civil legal assistance to low-income Maricopa County residents. VLP clients receive legal advice, brief service or direct representation by private attorneys who volunteer their time and services.
The Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southern Arizona Legal Aid - Based in Tucson, the VLP serves clients with civil legal problems in Apache, Cochise, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, Navajo, Pima, Pinal, and Santa Cruz Counties. Funding for the VLP is provided from a variety of generous sources including foundations, the courts, and private donors.
DNA-People’s Legal Services’ Volunteer Lawyer Program - Due to limited resources, DNA turns away nearly 3,000 people a year who ask for its help. Attorneys are uniquely qualified to assist people in poverty who experience substantially more legal problems than anyone else in our community - problems often resulting from poverty itself. Each year, at least 100 volunteer attorneys take a pro bono case in Arizona and New Mexico, through DNA's VLP. DNA practices in Arizona and New Mexico, plus in tribal court in Navajo, Hopi, Havasupai, Hualapai and Jicarilla Apache.
