The demand for legal services continues to grow as does the need for quality pro bono legal assistance. In 2013, NPLS' staff attorneys and volunteer attorneys helped more than 15,130 people. Each year, NPLS turns away 10,000 others because of lack of resources to help everyone. Volunteer attorneys bridge the gap between those who need assistance and those who receive it directly from Legal Aid. In 2013, 394 low-income people received free legal services from pro bono attorneys.
Volunteer opportunities involve providing extended representation to clients.
