The Pro Bono Project’s continuing mission is to provide free, quality civil legal services to the underserved members of our community. Our work today is as important as at any time in our thirty year history.
The Pro Bono Project exists to ensure that all underserved citizens of six local Louisiana parishes can find lawyers willing to donate time and civil legal experience to help them resolve civil legal problems.
The Pro Bono Project helps low-income families, individuals, and the elderly in need gain access to lawyers who can help them resolve civil legal issues. These issues range from family law matters like divorces, custody agreements, name changes, and adoptions; to property questions related to successions and estate planning, proof of title, contractor litigation, and consumer complaints; to debt issues, and much more.
The Pro Bono Project’s clients need civil representation but can’t afford it. Lawyers in the six-parish area surrounding New Orleans who consider it their professional responsibility to serve their communitiesneed a way to identify and screen pro bono clients.
