Statewide Legal Services has a very active Pro Bono program. Pro Bono attorneys and paralegals who volunteer play an essential role in delivering quality legal assistance to those who would otherwise go without. Most of our Pro Bono cases are received from our legal aid hotline which provides intake, advice and referral services to low income people. Our volunteers come from the Connecticut Pro Bono Network which coordinates pro bono work in the state. For information about the program, visit www.ctprobono.org.
Types of Cases
- Landlord/Tenant (eviction defense, security deposits)
- Family Law Cases (divorce, custody, etc.)
- School Expulsions
- Employment (Unemployment and Employment Discrimination)
- Wills/Health Care Directives/Power of Attorney
- Social Security
Statewide Legal Services also provides opportunities for attorneys who would like to assist but who cannot take a case for full representation.
