As the nation’s largest provider of pro bono services, Public Counsel needs people like you to make a difference. With the help of thousands of volunteers who give their time and talents, we are able to change people’s lives every day. 

Our volunteers are expertly trained and mentored by our staff and help to provide legal representation to more than twenty thousand low-income individuals, families, nonprofits, and small businesses each year.  The breadth of our practice allows us to offer a wide range of pro bono opportunities, both discrete and more in-depth, and for both transactional specialists as well as litigators.

To get started, please use the menu to select the appropriate type of volunteer opportunity. We look forward to working with you and thank you for partnering with us to ensure access to justice for all!

“So many people are in dire need of legal services but have neither the financial means to retain counsel nor the experience to navigate bureaucratic institutions. I can’t think of a more rewarding way to utilize my legal skills.”

— Marie McTeague, Retired Attorney
