Volunteer at Portage County Legal Aid Society, Inc. - Attorneys 

Here’s your chance to get involved with a project that truly seeks to make justice more just. The private attorneys who volunteer their time through Portage County Legal Aid Society, Inc. believe in the principle of equal justice, of making “justice for all” more than just a promise. These attorneys are convinced that our legal system must work for all of its citizens. Each year attorneys donate hundreds of hours of legal work while balancing busy lives and their own caseloads.

Portage County Legal Aid Society volunteer lawyers help people like these:

  • A battered woman is evicted from her home because of an abusive boyfriend.
  • A spouse is seeking divorce and custody of his/her minor children from a spouse who has abandoned the marriage
  • A client needs to have his/her drivers license reinstated in order to have reliable transport to and from a job.

Helping others, especially those who have no other options available, is often its won reward. However, volunteers in our projects gain far more than satisfaction. Our projects provide valuable experience. As a Portage County Legal Aid Society, Inc. attorney, you can assist clients in need and advance your career.

  • Experience in several areas of law.
  • Courtroom experience and client contact
  • Malpractice insurance is provided through our organization
  • There is a modest litigation expense stipend kept to reimburse attorneys for costs required for the representation
  • Panels, projects, and support so you can fulfill your pro bono obligations.
  • Recognition.
  • Flexibility, you ma accept or reject cases as your schedule dictates.
  • Mentoring: work with attorneys who have years of hands-on experience.
