All legal work is performed by private attorneys and other legal professionals who volunteer to help VLSP's clients, without charging a fee for their hourly rate.
In some areas, there are far more clients seeking help than there are pro bono volunteers available to help. In these areas, VLSP must limit its work to certain types of cases.
Some pro bono attorneys accept cases in which they provide full representation. Others participate in VLSP clinics: Family Law Clinic, Debt Clinic, Pro-se Divorce Clinic, Wills Clinic or the Lawyer of the Morning Program (a collaboration between VLSP and The Legal Aid Society of Rochester to assist low-income tenants facing eviction proceedings).
