Description:

The Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) is a partnership among several local bar associations and the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati.

Through this project, private attorneys and law firms accept from the VLP those referrals that have been identified by Legal Aid.

Volunteer attorneys accept cases in the field(s) of their choice. Legal Aid staffers screen prospective clients, and VLP matches cases with lawyers who provide brief advice or full representation.

If you are interested in learning more about the VLP, please contact Ginny Whitman (see below).
