It is the goal of the Jefferson County Bar Association Pro Bono Program to provide legal representation to residents of Jefferson, Hardin or Orange County who cannot afford to hire an attorney. The program relies entirely on local attorney volunteers to perform these services without pay. If any information provided to this office is found to be incomplete or untrue, the applicant’s eligibility will be terminated immediately and any attorney who has agreed to accept the case will be allowed to withdraw from that representation.
Human Rights First is an independent advocacy and action organization located in New York, Washington, D.C. and Houston. Here in Houston our Refugee Representation project assists people seeking asylum in the United States through both direct representation and pro bono models.
LSLA employs a team of 12 employees dedicated to the recruitment, training, appreciation, and retention of private attorneys to assist our eligible clients on a pro bono basis. LSLA’s Pro Bono Team includes a directing attorney who has been with the firm for 25 years, 3 attorneys who serve as pro bono litigation coordinators, 3 staff attorneys, and 4 support personnel. The attorneys collectively have nearly 100 years of legal experience.
