Volunteer Lawyers Needed by Legal Aid for Uncontested Divorces

Journal Categories

Mike "Buck" Morris, Managing Attorney of the Legal Aid Volunteer Lawyer Program is seeking attorneys to help them. Here's the email I received for their program, "Pursuing Justice Restoring Hope">

The Volunteer Lawyer Program is in need of volunteers to accept UNCONTESTED DIVORCE CASES (No Children/No Property) for low-income clients. If you are interested in providing free legal service to a client who would otherwise have no other means of receiving legal representation please respond to this e-mail. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

I have never been able to figure out in advance what kind of case will truly be uncontested. Sandy Ragland recently took one of these cases on, and Legal Aid can't apparently predict any better than me! It has some interesting issues. It's a good way to get your minimum 50 hours pro bono work done and to help some people in need.
