Pro Bono Attorneys
ALWAYS provides representation to young people in need, and our network of pro bono attorneys is an important part of our work. There is no right to government-funded counsel in the cases we take – areas where much is at stake – including immigration, orders of protection, wage theft, child custodial issues such as parenting time and support, and addressing records in criminal courts. Too often vulnerable children and youth cannot afford legal representation and are left to navigate the complex justice system on their own. With so much at stake, legal representation for vulnerable youth is absolutely crucial. Our volunteer attorneys help fill a critical gap by providing pro bono representation to vulnerable young people who otherwise would be left without full access to justice. Through our program, volunteer lawyers have the opportunity to work with our clients to change their lives by helping them eliminate legal barriers to safety, stability, and self-sufficiency.
If you are an attorney who is interested in taking a pro bono case with ALWAYS please fill out the appropriate form or contact us.
We also have free trainings for lawyers. Check on our news and events page for details about trainings as they are scheduled.
ALWAYS offers semester internship opportunities to students. Interns play a critical role in our success. Among other things, interns help conduct client intakes, research legal issues, perform record searches for documents needed to assist clients. We are currently looking at applications for Fall and Spring semester interns. If you are interested in an academic year internship, please fill out an appropriate form or contact us.
ALWAYS counts on volunteer interpreters to help us provide the highest quality of legal services to clients. Volunteer interpreters help facilitate phone calls and intake interviews, translate documents, and attend immigration hearings as an interpreter. If you are fluent in English and another language and you are interested in volunteering with us as an interpreter/translator, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
