Pro-Bono Attorney Program
We appreciate your interest in volunteering with the Pro Bono Unit at Legal Services of the Hudson Valley. Our website is being revamped as we prepare to launch several new projects.
The assistance of pro bono attorneys is vital to the mission of LSHV. Our volunteers directly impact the lives of the most vulnerable individuals and families in the Hudson Valley by helping our clients avoid homelessness, secure essential government benefits, and keep their families intact.
Pro bono opportunities at LSHV range from participation in our virtual Housing Advice Clinic to limited scope or full representation in matters including eviction prevention, consumer debt, child custody, and government benefits. We provide robust training and ongoing support to pro bono attorneys as they engage directly with clients, enhance their litigation skills, and gain a deeper understanding of a practice area. Whether assisting at a one-day clinic or representing an underserved LSHV client in court, you will benefit immensely from a rewarding pro bono experience.
If you would like to volunteer with LSHV’s Pro Bono Unit, please email our Pro Bono Director, Ilene Hartzband, at Ihartzband@lshv.org and include your specific interest and areas of expertise.
